Building Walls

It would not have gone this far if both women had mended their differences without building walls. It began on a December morning when Jane spoke rudely to Tara. Tara demanded an apology but Jane would not give one. The walls gradually began to grow when both women’s husbands ceased from communicating and visits were no more. The walls between the families have grown so high they have become strangers.

An apology could breakdown the wall but none was prepared to settle the differences.
