I found this article to be a good read. You can find it HERE.
My personal opinion is that Brexit signals the end for a lot of things and, even though it may signal the beginning of a few good things, those few good things are so short-sighted and temporary. It’s almost as if the voters were giving some forgetful drug or some social ADD. Brexit will never make sense to me, excepting the part where corporate greed takes over and reduces a proud society to obedient robots.

The acid attacks in London are pretty sickening. Permanently disfiguring someone for any reason is pretty brutal. Yet, I’m left asking the question of why there is such little camera evidence of these attacks when London is one of the world’s most surveilled cities? I’m not denying the attacks are happening. I’m just wondering how it is that they are happening away from the all-seeing eyes of the State.
I’m also curious as to where the acid is coming from. Victims speak of immediate burning. Acid that strong isn’t readily available over the counter and there doesn’t seem to be a spike in the purchasing of car batteries.
These are genuine questions. I’d be interested to hear answers.
Just some questions. What are your thoughts?
Man, my home needs a break. This is crazy. Prayers and condolences to the families of those that were lost.

The requirement to be resilient is a sad thing. Yet, resilience will always be the British response to terrorism, as long as terrorism remains.
Please stop… 😦
I saw this on the BBC and thought you should see it:

This is sad and mindless. I miss home, having emigrated in 2012, but I read stories like this, along with others, since leaving, and sometimes feel ashamed. This madness has to stop and it has to be stopped at the root of the problem.
Because London is such a complex boiling pot of so many demographics, only cohesion will bring about change. Various demographics looking out for themselves isn’t working and, historically, never has. London needs to come together and raise its children as a village. There are so many people in London with so many qualities to offer the younger generations but everyone is so busy moving on to the next thing and so busy making that next pound to pay the next bill that there are whole demographics slipping through the social cracks that are appearing. Disappearing with, clearly, very serious consequences.
Wake up, London!
