Tear Down This Wall (not really)

Posted by kenhoward on August 5, 2008

There’s going to be a lot of fuss about The Wall over the next couple weeks. The picture is at the very rugged Mutianyu, around an hour northwest of Beijing. While it’s awesome and inspiring to see, it is highly reminiscint of times of endless war, slavery, oppression, and death. The original intent was to keep others out, but in modern times it could be representative of holding people in.

Hopefully the Beijing Olympics on the world stage will move China toward a freer society with complete and utter protection of human rights and dignity.
