Today we are witnessing a President fighting hard to build a wall. Does the fact that the President have to fight so hard in his effort to build a wall mean that we are a thoughtful country? Many question what a wall would do, what it would represent, and ho much it would cost. Our republic with it’s passionate and engaged citizens is a case study for the world. I believe we make mistakes, but also show that we develop some of the best solutions to the challenges of human civilization.
