In one of the episodes of Inside The NBA, Chuck Barkley and company were having fun on the impending construction of the Great American Wall south of their border as promised by the Donald.
While the segment was hilarious as usual, I couldn’t help but feel a little bit inspired by what Kenny Smith said next,
Bridges are better than walls.
Simple but apt, it was a great reminder that we must always strive to build bridges that connect people regardless of their affiliation or physical attributes. We should not put up walls that only serve to divide and isolate groups of people. Promoting cooperation and harmony amongst each other esp. in today’s interconnected world seems like a no-brainer to me but there are just some people who would rather foment hate and discrimination just to further their own agenda.
Be a bridge instead. The world would be a better place.
