last night

Another awful terrorist incident last night, not far away. So sorry for the lives lost and affected, and impressed by the speed it was dealt with by the police.

There's a chance that I might die in a road traffic accident - and a much, much smaller chance that I might die in a terrorist incident - on my way to church today, or work tomorrow, or folk club on Tuesday, but I will still go to church and work and folk club. I will, as usual, look both ways when I'm crossing one-way streets and give second glances to unattended packages, but I won't spend a moment worrying about or fearing either of those life-ending possibilities. Because, honestly, what would be the point of that? :-)
