Huddled in some kind of grimy squat (because that’s where terrorists hang out right), a group of hooded figures are pouring over data, endless streams of data. There’s glee, back-slapping and high-fives. “Yes they’re doing it again, they’re dividing right before our eyes.”

“Under heaven nothing is more soft and yielding than water.

How many times have you watched the news over the years and cried silent tears over devastation in a far away land? I’m holding my hands up now, I’m often a channel turner on the sad bits during Comic Relief. Not because I don’t care but because it breaks my heart, especially to see, Read More
