In this photo taken on June 10, 2013, a Peace Wall in the Cluan Place area of East Belfast, Northern Ireland, the wall divides the Protestant Cluan Place from the Catholic Short Strand area. When President Obama comes to Belfast, he’s expected to praise a country at peace and call for walls that separate Irish Catholics and British Protestants to come tumbling down. Barely a 10-minute walk from where the U.S. leader is speaking Monday, June 17, 2013, those walls have kept growing in size and number throughout two decades of slow-blooming peace. Residents on both sides of the battlements today insist they must stay to keep violence at bay. (AP Photo/Peter Morrison)
