    I can imagine the racists reading this article all like ..."pfft. I'm still not racist because I said so and people need to stop being so politically correct. This world has gone upside down because people are trying to be rational, decent human beings by pointing out inequalities. Muslims are destroying the planet and I know I'm right because opinions."

My heart aches when he walks in the door and I can see it written all over him that today was a bad day. My DH works in child protection and has to subject himself to viewing some of the vilest most horrific imagery in the pursuit of identifying and hopefully catching the offenders. It is eating away at his soul - he does this to protect his children and YOURS.

    The officers who attend domestic violence situations, child abuse and neglect are doing the BEST they can within the laws that constrain them, the VERY limited resources they have available and with **** pay, horrible working hours and conditions, public stigma (pigs anyone?), and NO support for their mental health.

    So your throw away remark is completely uncalled for and the reason my DH rarely tells people what he does for a living.
    My bil is a police officer in child protection also I believe they do an absolute awesome job and hate when anyone thinks that they are constantly doing everything g in there powers within the law to help protect the innocent. He also has 4 small children and takes his job extremely seriously.

    And...we wake up to another (suspected) terrorist attack, this time in Munich.
    I remained amazed that many of the PPs are not scared.
    My Mum is going to Spain soon, and I am appropriately "terrified".

    What I've read makes it look like a local act (not terrorist). It may well be but too early.

    My husbands in London so I get it. But he was at risk of an IRA bombing 20 years ago too. My point is I'm not convinced things are worse.

    It sounds like a home-grown nut-job, yes. But it's still a "terrorist attack". Doesn't matter if it's ISIS or a member of the Icelandic Square-Dancing Group, it's still an act of terrorism.

    My point was that the likelihood of getting caught up in a terrorist attack seems to me to be increasing quite significantly. And it's freaking me out.

    Dd is going to Europe with her father in a few months like they do most years. I'm usually very easy going about this as his whole family is overseas and she has such a strong bond with them. However this year I am close to putting my foot down and telling him she isn't going. They will be traveling to Germany and the U.k among other places and I feel sick thinking about it. I have many friends in Europe and the stuff they tell me is terrifying mainly for women. Usually I'm not someone who gets caught up in the scare campaigns but because I speak to many people in Europe i know that it's on the brink of all hell breaking lose.
