“Mom, what is this?”

“This is a barricade. The enemy lives on the other side”.

“Mom, I can’t see the enemy”.

“They too cannot see us. The land in-between is called ‘No Man’s Land?”

“If we cannot see them then why are they our enemies?”

“Shush! You ask many questions”.

“Mom Can I go to the other side and shake hands with the enemy? This way I be friends 
with them”.

“You cannot cross this boundary, child”.


“Look there, mom” points to the open skies. “If the bird is free to fly from here to there, why can’t I be?”
