Fences and crowds

A comparison worthy of Thomas Szasz (so poignant, so clear – and, that it tells us about ourselves, from two sides of mortality) – from my friend Clarissa:

In Ukraine graves are separated by fences so that people can get some boundaries around them at least in death. Of course, they still have family members crowding them inside the enclosures but at least the strangers stay out.

In North America, graves are not separated. This brings people out of isolation at least in death.
