The Things That Unite Us ARE Greater Than The Things That Divide Us

As I was walking over the Rainbow Bridge from the US to Canada, the winds coming off of the American and Horseshoe Falls at Niagara were quite strong. The railing over the edge of the abyss is made of strong metal, but is not a solid wall; it’s made of individual metal tubes in a frame. I’m assuming it’s so the strong, strong wind can push through and move beyond and not batter a more solid wall. That would probably cause a solid wall to break down and crumble. Not so much what you’d want next to this enormous drop. However, pedestrians have no buffer from this strong wind while walking.

With the large drop-off on my left and the stream of car traffic going through customs to enter NY from Canada on my right, I was concerned that the wind might blow me right into a vehicle. There’s a small wall near the car lanes, but it’s not much.

A young woman walked toward me from the Canadian side with a man and little girl. It was quickly apparent that she chose poorly when she dressed in the morning. She was wearing a very swingy skirt. She was about 30 feet in front of me when a forceful gust of wind shot through the railing and up under her skirt, throwing the whole skirt straight up, completely hiding her head. She was wearing the tiniest, cutest little pink thong.

And that’s when I realized that all people, regardless of nationality or race or religious affiliation or political leanings, are really all the same deep down inside;  we’re all 12-year-old boys:
The enthusiastic and persistent honking was very democratically spread among ALL of the drivers stuck in the customs line on the bridge.

Ah, Human Beings…
