Walls

Some people are happy they have gotten rid of it, others are hoping to tear down the borders between themselves and their loved ones soon (like Phillip in Cyprus...) and then there are those who wished they had one!

I have to admit I don't get this at all (and am also not well informed on the subject either!). wasn't there supposed to be a North American Union? Why are they then building the wall?!
and I must say I was always amazed that the whole world was talking about Checkpoint Charlie - because people from West Berlin could never use it! View Post: Berlin Wall

We had to go via other checkpoints, a whole lot less glorious and where they would make sure that they would do all they possibly could to harass us!

And those weren't just cute little checkpoints, you should have seen the hardware they had there!!! But those are gone now, just disappeared into thin air, not even a monument or something there at the location now... So the world will never know!

Μερικοί άνθρωποι είναι ευχαριστημένοι που έχουν απαλλαγεί από αυτό, άλλοι ελπίζουν να γκρεμίσουμε τα τείχη μεταξύ τους και τους αγαπημένους τους σύντομα (όπως και ο Φοίβος στην Κύπρο...) και στη συνέχεια, υπάρχουν και εκείνοι που θα ήθελαν να είχαν ένα τείχος!

Οφείλω να ομολογήσω ότι δεν τα γνωρίζω όλα (και επίσης δεν είμαι καλά ενημερωμένη σχετικά με το θέμα!). Δεν είναι υποτίθεται μια Βορειοαμερικανική Ένωση; Γιατί τότε κτίζουν τείχος;! Δείτε το Βίντεο: Το τελευταίο 5%

και οφείλω να πω ότι πάντα με εξέπληττε το γεγονός ότι ολόκληρος ο κόσμος μιλούσε για το Checkpoint Charlie - επειδή οι άνθρωποι από το Δυτικό Βερολίνο δεν μπορούσαν να το χρησιμοποιήσουν! Έπρεπε να πάμε μέσω άλλων σημείων ελέγχου, ένα πάρα πολύ λιγότερο γνωστό και όπου θα εξασφαλίζετο ότι θα μπορούσαν να κάνουν ό, τι μπορούσαν για να μας ενοχλήσει! Δείτε την ιστοσελίδα: Βερολίνο

Και εκείνα δεν ήταν απλώς χαριτωμένα μικρά σημεία ελέγχου, θα έπρεπε να βλέπατε τα υλικά που είχαν εκεί! Αλλά αυτά έχουν φύγει τώρα, εξαφανίστηκαν στον άνεμο και δεν υπάρχει κάτι σαν ένα μνημείο ή κάτι εκεί άλλο στη θέση τους τώρα... Έτσι ο κόσμος ποτέ δεν θα ξέρει!

oh that was so sweet of you!

yeah and the world has also no idea about Cyprus, does it?

I think they probably would care, if they only knew...

Sarah Sofia...your contribution and version of this history is invaluable and necessary. All to often people are satisfied with what's offered to them, a polished version of sorts...and aren't interested enough look any further. It's unfortunate.

And about Cyprus...no -not too many in the world have any idea. I researched the subject for a presentation that I gave while in university and before I began my presentation I asked how many of my peers knew about the topic I was about to discuss. Not one.
By the end of my presentation people did care.

Most people don't care if it's not happening to them they don't want to know...It's a sorry and sad world we live in...Hope your week goes well...

Hi Sarah Sofia! This is fun seeing you here at Phivos' blog! I am only now becoming informed about the situation in Cyprus. There is much to learn because it isn't in the news.
Now, is there another sort of wall being built in Germany? I'll have to Google this to find out more because I'm confused.
Another "wall" that isn't much discussed is the one being erected at the U.S./Mexico border. I am opposed to it.
