What’s the source of rage?

In the course of my life – when exposed to wars, revolutions, epidemics – fear was a constant companion. But hope was also present knowing those events would eventually come to an end.

Now, as I experience a new fear, I realize this time it is here to stay. We have all become a target for thrill killing wherever we are – at the bank, at work, at the doctor’s, at school, while driving or shopping.

Are we going to spend the rest of our life looking over our shoulders? It appears so.

Where does this rage come from? A rage that has absolutely no consideration for human lives and pushes to kill just for the fun of it.

As this situation is worsening every day more, no light can be seen at the end of the tunnel.

It has reached a point that we do not need foreign terrorists to come to our country to kill us. Some among us do the job just as well.
