What happens next

Same mistakes, different outcome As darkness descends and the moonlight shines down on what remains of the another day of chaos most of us can sit locked indoors, shielded away and try to imagine that the earth’s unfolding events and those affected by them are still a long way away from our own reality.  Some of us believe this through ignorance, others as a means of survival because the cold harsh reality is too crushing to accept.
