wrong/right way

i drove home today through Girffith Park. The park recently suffered a massive fire and most of the park is closed. At one point on the part of the road that's still open the lane I was driving in was re-directed across the median and took over the left lane of the opposite side of the road. To drive forward I had to ignore a sign that clearly says, "Do Not Enter. Wrong Way" as well as direction arrows painted on the road surface that pointed toward me, oppostie to the direction I was driving.

Sometimes messages created in the past linger beyond their usefulnes. Sometimes it's important to go our own way, when we know we're right, and safe, and not a danger to others, even when others tell us we're wrong, stop, turn around, and go back.
