There’s a lot of mending bridges going on

This great malaphor was spoken by Jenna Johnson of the Washington Post on the t.v. show With All Due Respect, discussing the possibility of Romney becoming Secretary of State.  It is a mash up of “building bridges” (to increase understanding between different people or groups) and “mending fences” (to repair relationships).  Interestingly, I ran across an article by the travel guy Rick Steves entitled “Mending Bridges in Mostar”, a wonderful story about the healing in a small town in Bosnia-Herzegovina.  Here is the link:  https://www.ricksteves.com/watch-read-listen/mending-bridges-in-mostar   I think it’s worth a read considering the turmoil between religions and cultures that exist throughout the world today.  A big thanks to Sam Edelmann who heard this one and passed it on!
