On a sad note, there was another knife attack at the Guangzhou China train station. So scary….this hits more to home for me because I actually know this station quite well. It’s one of the main stations that connects Hong Kong to Guangzhou, and I’ve gotten to know the station quite well because of work.
They say the attackers were part of the muslim ethnic group residing in XinJiang. Their motives was for separation from China. I don’t know, I don’t want to get into politics here nor do I know not enough about it to have an intelligent post about it.
I would say that everyone should be careful, but how do you be careful when you can’t forsee horrific events that are coming your way? If I knew something bad was going to happen to me, I’d probably take every measure to avoid this catastrophe. But until we invent some kind of fortune telling ball that actually works, we will never know. So…really saying be careful doesn’t help.
I guess the only thing you can do, is be alert at all times. I guess there’s a reason why I find most chinese people (I say most, not all) are not friendly to strangers. It’s embedded in our culture and learning’s as a small child to not trust strangers.
You just don’t know what the other person is thinking / what their motives are. Thus the world we live.
