Huntington WV – Chesapeake Ohio

Portland Or – Vancouver WA

Niagara Falls NY – Niagara Falls Ontario

Herzogenrath Germany – Kerkrade Netherlands

Tornio Finland – Haparanda Sweden

Each of these cities (or towns) are separated by a river or artificial boundary. The first two are in different US states and the next three are in different countries.

Are these borders/boundaries really significant? Are the people on one side really different then the people on the other side?

Just something to think about when you hear someone referring to “us vs them”.

Have a great day!
