I’m thankful that the recent terrorist plot was foiled in time, but I’m also saddened at how the wickedness of a few makes everyone suffer. We gradually get treated more and more like suspects in our own homeland. Some of the new restrictions, like the complete ban on all liquids, seem ridiculous to me, but on the other hand, I understand that it’s much more efficient to just ban everything. Besides, as the world becomes a more threatening place, sacrifices become necessary in order to have safety. I wonder if we’ll ever be able to really win the war on terror.
I guess it’s all just such a reminder of how the world is hurtling towards a dramatic finish. We really shouldn’t expect things to get better, at least not long-term.
