The Wall

One thought on “The Wall”

  1. re: your 5th paragraph “We as a nation…”

    Spot on. I wonder if people focus on their pocket worlds so intensely for this reason. Sport is a good example. Contained within that pocket are everyday stories of highs and lows, manageable wins and losses, and with some compartmentalization you can feel pretty intensely for them. It’s much easier than trying to keep up with “the world” as it’s presented through our media, where most stories seem so sensational, likely to the point of hyperbole. That makes me ignorant to a degree, but also happier?

    I still don’t think the world is so bad. If anything I think it is overcrowded, underworked, and the media is big enough to pick at least one horrific story out of somewhere.
