An Addendum to the Great Poet

My mother informed me that the post "Good Fences Make Good Neighbors" was not self-explanatory. So let me explain.

We had the opportunity to hear a lecture from an Israeli lawyer about the Separation Barrier between Israel and the West Bank. After the lecture he took us to the wall and we discussed things there as well. Throughout the experience plus the next few days, Robert Frost's "Mending Wall" was running through my head, specifically the lines quoted in the post. I have a lot of conflicting emotions in regards to the Separation Barrier that are basically summed up in the Frost quotation that I posted.

I hope that was enough clarification; if it was not, comment with questions.
