I have lived in the same place for majority of my life and have always just felt safe and protected. I know all of my neighbors and because they are all older there's not many young people around disturbing the peace. The most action my neighborhood gets is after school hours, many students walk…

    Yet no person truly enjoys being on his or her own. This conflicting idea/image at the core of Robert Frost’s 1914 poem, “Mending Wall,” is striking: two neighbors come together to build a barrier between them yet also display a sense of respect and neighborliness towards one another.

This pattern of barrier-building appears as a frequent theme in both literature and politics, from the feuding families in the play “Romeo and Juliet” to President…
