Usually, we don’t think bad things can happen in a relatively stable country but when they do, they happen to “other kinds” of people, especially to those that seem different, whether it is religion, place of origin, lifestyle, or genetics. When certain entities or, for instance; a contender, to be a leader of millions of people, is elected to the highest office and the terrible “suddenly” happens to all of us, we act surprised and say, well “if only we had known.  But, we do know. We always know, we just pretend that somehow “good” will be the result of “ill”.  For instance, dictators often use fear mongering of “others” and this is a consistent trait/trick used by the ill-intended.    As someone once said, “when someone shows you who they are – believe them!  It often takes only one “ill-intended” human to destroy millions of our friends, families, and neighbors because they may be considered to be the “different kind of people”.  And, we do know!
