international boundaries, do they seperate us or give us identites?

March 21, 2007 2:10pm CST
today the world is divided into numerous countries. we are called Indians, Americans,Nigerians,Chinese.... What do these boundaries mean to us? are they here to seperate us and create divisions amongst us, do they teach us to consider the fellow being as an enemy, do they make us feel inferior or superior to some, do they bind us in walls of hatred and selfishness. Or do they give us our own identities, give ouselves the space to flourish as an individual, give us the feeling of independence, discipline, clarity of thought and make us aware of the diversity. The question still remains after the formation of european union and after the never ending struggle of palestine and iran.
