Is it safe? What constitutes sanctuary? Do perimeter walls or fences create a safe place, or is it the support of friends and family? When societies norms don’t seem to protect us from harm, where do we go for sanctuary? “”Shoot-out at the Bar X”” argues that structures and places offer only temporary sanctuary at best….that safety and sanctuary are only truly granted to us by friends, family, and allies. Sanctuary is more than a place, it is the protection provided by the support of others….no person is an island….walls and structures are never enough.
