Berlin Market attack 19/12/16
sooper mouse
Regardless what anyone might believe with regards to the "refugee crisis"- these things are abhorrent. Let's hope 2017 will be less bloody. Not looking for a political discussion just... angry and sad and kinda out of my head. A close friend's brother died in the Nice attack last summer.

I don't pray, but maybe those with a better relation with the powers that be might want to consider mentioning these poor victims...

I have concluded that Jenna is Blake-aware, Blake is Avon-aware, Avon is self-aware and Gan is rarely aware. Vila is merely wary. Cally is frequently more away than aware.

It is horrific. I suppose that those that have been subject to extreme violence from childhood through war or terrorism are densentised to the horror of what they do. But how can we not all wish for a more peaceful, kinder and loving 2017? I hope fervently that the tragedy hasn't touched any of our German friends personally while extending my heartfelt sorrow to those that suffered in this latest atrocity.
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.

in my experience it doesn't desensitize, maybe it does for those who start getting it younger than I was at 14. But this is not the place for that discussion.

Hope everyone is OK and safe. Let's hope it's the last for a long while.

We live in dangerous times, especially this year. I pray for the victims and I ask the powers that be to stop all this nonsense but I am only once voice.

What made it even worse was the gunning down of the Russian ambassador to Turkey in the same afternoon. And on video! And now with a very abrupt change of politics world-wide I really worry for the fate of the inhabitants of this little green planet. We have the power to change things, if only we unite. But in the mean time, we grieve and pray.

It has always been so I'm afraid, in the age of 24 hour media and constant information bombardment we just tend to be more informed of events.

actually, it wasn't always like this. the world was a lot safer at least in the west until about 5 years ago or less

While we live in 'interesting times', I would not like to swap our days with the 'good old days' 100 years ago.
At that time, Europeans happily took arms against each other out of sheer nationalism. Today, we meet as friends. We have come a long way in the last 100 years. There is progress. As John Cedars put it, 'Humanity is a shared project, and like all projects, there are setbacks. But it is ours.'
Attacks like these will be with us for a long time, I fear. But we will progress.

Safe for who?

I disagree its just publicised more. But speaking as someone who lived in a military town during the 70's and 80's we were well aware of IRA risks. and of course ETA, The Red Brigade and of course Irish *cough* loyalists to name just a few of the extremists elsewhere on mainland Europe.

Remember Lockable, Dunblane, Hungerford , indeed bombings and shootings in Northern Ireland and indeed London??

Elsewhere in the world you had all kinds of conflicts in Europe, Central and South America, the middle east. All over Africa and of course the constant threat with the cold war etc.. etc.. etc..

Of course recent events are a tragedy and I of course condemn any extreme act. But one thing it isn't, a new phenomenon or such activity at an increased level. Just as I said it's more publicised in the 24/7 internet society.

I am not going to get in any politicised debate. But it remains a fact that this kind of thing has always happened and will happen as long as hatred is allowed to fester.

Your hope is very cheering Hugbot. I'm so sorry your country is suffering from its humane open door policy to immigration- it's setting an example to us all with its refusal to give in to hatred.

Thank you, Annie.
The mayor of Berlin said, 'We cannot and we must not respond to hatred with hatred.'
According to the news, the inhabitants of Berlin are 'maximally unperturbed'. Horrible things happen, but life goes on.
There are only two things that we have to fight now: hatred and fear.
