I took this photo the other day of a truck loaded from front to back with compressed gas cylinders in downtown, Washington, D.C.
I understand that there are strict safety regulations for this.
Although with this truck just sitting out on the street, appapently not moving or even attended as far as I could see, I was a little concerned.
At the same time, coming to work today, there was someone marching down the street yelling "Allah"--again and again--sort of talking to themselves yet screaming something that wasn't intelligible, at least to me.
Not that there is anything wrong with freedom of expression, but it just seemed a little wild and scary on the darkened streets.
I couldn't help think about this gas truck with all these gas containers from the other day...and are we keeping things as safe as they need to be.
We take a lot for granted in terms of our security, but are we perhaps getting a little overconfident so many years after 9/11 now.
Hopefully, we're all good, but we need to be careful, vigilant, and safe! ;-)
