Nosleep

"Nosleep" is a term for horror stories. I am on nosleep right now, only this horror story is real. Terror is shaking Europe. People are scared of terrorists, and even more of openly talking about the terror and its causes. Terror can kill you – openly talking about it will kill your career and make life hard for your children. Better duck and hide.

My kids are sleeping right now. They don't follow the news. I don't allow them to. They have been doing homework and playing with friends all day. That's whatw childhood is supposed to be like.

You know the bullshit that politicians say while not meaning a word of it, about the world we will hand over to our children? I actually mean it. That actually worries me. I have kids and they will, hopefully, be here long after I am gone. What world will they live in? That's what keeps me on nosleep.
