The news scared me out of my sleep this morning

How terrifying it is to wake up to news stating that a stabbing act of terrorism happened right in the heart of borough market.

To think I was just there less than 2 years ago, walking from my hostel to london tower and passing by the road leading to borough market. My eyes widened to the news on my phone of the incident happening at 5+ in the morning- Singapore time. I thought of all my friends who were in London. Some had already marked themselves safe on facebook, the others did not. I couldn’t imagine watching someone get stabbed right in front of me, let alone multiple times. How the survivors must have felt, going through such a traumatic experience.

Terrorism is real, and this isn’t limited to just London but to so many parts of the world.

With the current surge in terrorism attacks, it really brings me to wonder… why? And am I missing out a big picture here?

  1. The terrorists want us to live in fear and/or uncertainty. I know the feeling of having been at one of the locations, be it months (London) or weeks (Boston) before. Hopefully all of your friends are now accounted for.
    We are all in dire need of peace and respect for this world and every living being.

    1. Your thoughts definitely resonated with me, Karen. We need peace and respect for every human life. Well said. 🙂
