You will find the reading at the bottom, under the last two cards.
“If the Almighty were to rebuild the world and asked me for advice, I would have English Channels round every country. And the atmosphere would be such that anything which attempted to fly would be set on fire.” Winston Churchill
“It cannot take decades to resurrect, we must act immediately with purpose and enthusiasm to rebuild.” Alan Autry
We like to build things; play things with blocks, sculptures with clay, buildings with brick. Humans like to build things – monuments to ourselves as a race (Tower of Babel), or to individuals of genius (Frank Lloyd Wright), or in the names of gods (and goddesses – Notre Dame Cathedral) – if for no other reason because it proves we were here. We build. We renovate. We raze. We rebuild. From towering sky-scrapers to ornate cathedrals to featureless strip malls – WE BUILD! And we call it progress, even when it lacks improvement.
