It is believed that locking of padlocks is a custom that originated in ancient China. There the lovers locked a lock on a chain or a door and then tossed the key symbolically for their love to be eternal.
Everywhere in the world – Moscow, Rome, Dublin, Paris, Florence and many others, thousands of padlocks hang on bridges, fences, gates, grilles, poles, beautiful artworks. All of them are an expression of mankind’s pursuit of that connecting and uniting us, namely: LOVE. Putting a personalized padlock could mean “we were here”, “I love you”, “I want you forever”, “I wish with you …”.
So far so good. But unfortunately there are pretty closed doors for houses. The reasons are the cruel reality we live in. The wealth and money of a certain group at the expense of much of the planet’s population. Another reason, thanks to the same reason, is that the Goyami business ate the little one. It leaves the middle class dying in mud and misery. I live in the hope that the LOVE of the young will win to unite all nations on our planet Earth. What do you think.
