  1. Hello David
    I have mixed feelings about what I've just watched. It's common for people to show solidarity in the face of traumatic events, and maybe that is what was happening, but there also seemed to be a tribal 'us against the world' element, reminding me of a line from Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, '….a deliberate drowning of consciousness by means of rhythmic noise.' What happened at the Boston Marathon was appalling, without doubt, but I believe it was just as likely to have come from within your society, from elements who want to impose their worldview on everyone, who would deny the likes of you and I the right to be ourselves, rather than being something inflicted on it from outside.

    Love & best wishes
    Sammy B
