Reasons for, and a definition of, ‘wall’

Webster’s definition of a wall is, “an enclosed area meant for protection or privacy.” Structures like this are used to enclose hospitals to protect others, both inside and out, from germs, bacteria and disease. To keep sterile, for doctors to work.

Walls are used for banks. A place we hold our money that we’ve worked hard for. Protect the funds that we might need for a loan.

Walls are used for churches, synagogues and mosques so that we may come to worship in peace, without bother. Walls protect our schools for our children. To educate them without bother. To guarantee that they are safe till they return home at the end of the day.

Walls protect our homes. A place where all that we hold dear — from our family to all that we’ve worked hard for — is kept. A similar structure like a fence, as also used to wall-off our farms — our land for protection.

The only way anyone is permitted to enter any of these structures or areas is by our permission. That is determined by we the people. When someone come to your home, as you open the door, you make sure the screen door is locked. Why? Because you do not know what their intentions are. When you find out, you’re either going to let them in or send them away. We take the chance everyday when we open the doors to our businesses, hospitals, churches, schools and homes.

The wall on the southern border needs to be up, and we need someone at the gate to decide who comes in and who doesn’t. I gave you the definition of wall. Another word I used in this letter is the word protect. Webster’s defines the word protect as, “keep safe from harm or injury — to preserve.”

Wall equals protection.
