Surely some revelation is at hand…

NICE, FRANCE, July 17, 2016: People gather at a makeshift memorial on the Promenade des Anglais, a tribute to the victims of the Bastille Day attack that left 84 dead. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the truck attack that killed 84 people. Tunisian Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, 31, smashed a 19-tonne truck into a packed crowd of people in the Riviera city celebrating France's national day. ***** Turning and turning in the widening gyre The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned...-- William Butler Yeats
