Be on alert al­ways

New Straits Times - - Letters -

THURS­DAY, MAY 25, 2017 I WAS at a loss for words when I heard about the bomb­ing at Manch­ester Arena in Eng­land.

Such at­tacks are hap­pen­ing of­ten. Lives are threat­ened and some, sadly, lost. It is tragic when in­no­cent lives are lost.

At least 22 peo­ple died and 59 were in­jured in the in­ci­dent, which po­lice be­lieve is a ter­ror­ist at­tack.

The world is get­ting sick. Peo­ple are be­com­ing more cruel in ad­vanc­ing their agenda and goal.

The in­ci­dent should not be taken lightly. It cre­ates ten­sion, es­pe­cially among coun­tries and vic­tims’ fam­ily mem­bers.

Imag­ine a fun night out at a con­cert turn­ing tragic in the blink of an eye.

Ter­ror­ist at­tacks al­ways in­volve bomb­ing. They tar­get crowded places. This in­ci­dent should serve as wake-up call for all. Peo­ple should be aware of their sur­round­ings as at­tacks oc­cur with­out warn­ing.

Keep track of your loved ones. Ru­mours are cir­cu­lat­ing that an at­tack is im­mi­nent in our coun­try. Whether this is true or not, we must be alert.
