Nothing is happening

| World affairs | 1 Comment

Now that I am commuting five days a week by train to my work in Amsterdam Zuid-Oost, you can imagine that I feel slightly uncomfortable with the idea that there are terrorists out there looking for so-called soft targets to bomb.

Look at the two hundred or so innocent train commuters in Madrid who got killed by a number of synchronized explosions planned for maximum damage.

My nervousness is increased by the fact that the terrorists have made known that they will be seeking revenge for those countries who publicly supported the invasion of Iraq, namely England and the Netherlands, in addition to Spain.

This is a crazy world we live in, and the best I can do is to continue like nothing is happening, living and enjoying each day as it arrives.

Just in case.

It's been a while since I 'checked in', and I'm glad to read that you at least have a job. I hope it is enjoyable.

Yes, it is terrible what terrorists do, to attempt to make us all afraid. And yes, the best "is to continue like nothing is happening, living and enjoying each day as it arrives." Enjoy each day, savor each moment. 'A life well lived is the best revenge!"
