To all who have lost loved ones in the recent horrific action of a truck driver in Nice, France, I offer my deepest sympathy.
I cannot fathom the hate, the twisted mind of the man who set out to kill and gravely injure so many people leaving so many others to suffer.
What started as a celebration ended as a black mark on the history of Nice, France, and the world. This has been added to too many other black moments in history.
I can only come to the conclusion this hate has its roots in poverty and lack of a proper education ending in wars and hatred, a lack of humanity. The very word “humanity” is meant to mean humans being kind to other humans. When there’s a lack of it, humans behave worse than wild animals. Indeed, wild animals often show more kindness than humans. Most of them don’t kill out of hatred.
