Is Technology the Silent Terrorist!

This was my first thought after seeing the consequences of what occurred in London. What’s going on?

How did that man get to the point of wanting to do something so dreadful and awful, as each of these disasters are?

Always be truthful… especially to yourself.

Always be truthful… especially to yourself.
