I didn’t find out about the Bali terrorist attacks till quite late yesterday. I had a horrible feeling as I watched the news, it was a mixture of disbelief and… well, not being surprised.
By that I mean that we now live in a world where none of us are safe. Anywhere.
Some of us get killed by the bombs of governments, some of us, as in the Bali victims, get killed by the bombs of terrorist organisations. Whichever gets us, we’re equally dead, equally murdered by maniacs. Every day seems to bring news of a new low in human affairs, another revelation of our capability for brutality.
Right now, I’d like a little planet I could move to that’s free of religious nutters and anyone else who thinks they somehow have the (God-given) right to take another human being’s life.
My thoughts go out to the friends and families of the Bali victims.
