The Border Is All Around Us, and It’s Growing

Borders are all around us. Borders bet5ween countries, between continents, beteen people, between groups of people.

There are walls, not just between Mexico and the United States of America. There are high fences between Morocco and small portions of Spain, on the African continent. 

Some people create borders by criticizing others, who are erecting borders. It seems an ongoing process, unless we want to be a person who does not build bricks with words or cement or any other material available. 

Read here what Laila Lalami has written about borders and the power of borders.
