The last day of the year and parties all over the globe. My daughter and her boyfriend are celebrating in my home town, Vienna. They are planning to go to the Silvester-Mile which is in the city center and over crowded the later it gets. (On a side note: Dec. 31. is called Silvester in the German speaking areas, because it is the name day of Silvester.)
Vienna too received terror warnings. By now the celebrations are not cancelled. Do I worry? actually not because of the terror warnings. Those people want to use fear as a tool of oppression although there is no real thread. I am more concerned of those daft (thank you, Judy) guys who are throwing firecrackers into the crowd, throwing glass bottles, and more which can cause mass panic.
It all has to do with respect, takeing care of one another, and with peace. Let’s all try to stay peaceful today. Let’s ignore nervous or offending attitudes. Let’s stay peaceful and don’t fuel any anger or resentments. Let’s ride peacefully from 2015 into 2016.
