Where is the logic in that?

We have a choice: we can build distrust or trust, disconnection or connection. Our world is large enough that we can put distance between ourselves and others—and never have to deal with that person again in our lives. Or so we think. But we do deal with that disconnection for the rest of our lives and for the breadth of the world. The more distance we place between ourselves and others, the more distance there is in the world. Does distance help us with peace and justice and love and the things that really matter? Or is closeness and openness better? Can pushing away an entire country, can shock and awe as an approach to other people, help bring us together? Where is the logic in that? We must choose the better path.
