Our Fractured World

Martin Place, Sydney, 80 years ago, when it was safe for a boy to ride a bike delivering Remington typewriters, without fearing for his life.
The same view of Martin Place, Sydney, but taken this evening. It's a different world, one full of fear, one in which no one is safe anymore, anywhere.

So sad. :-(
There is no safe haven from extremism and hate.

Unfortunately, Tina is correct.

I will also point out that there have always been madmen and murderers, and for well over a century they have had access to guns, explosives, etc.

So sorry that Sydney was hit by this event.

Very sad that this happens in Australia too.

Sort of shakes our expectancy of safety in our own world/neighborhood.
Richard is right though, there have always been crazies out there, but it seems to be so often now!
