Oh Lord. Not again.
I can’t believe that another attack has been attempted. From what I can tell from the news, the bombs failed to detonate. We’ve been lucky. As a copycat attack, it failed. As an attempt to show up our security, well … we live in a free society, and we have to get on with our lives without fear. I feel the odd sense of resigned nervousness (if that isn’t an oxymoron) that doubtless many people across the country are feeling. Sure, there’s always a risk. But if we restricted liberties to the point where everyone was tracked, recorded, searched and investigated, this wouldn’t be our country anymore. It would be our prison.
