In the pitch darkness strange things can happen;
But unfortunately nowadays it happens in the daylight too.

    Too true, we would hope that in the daylight, those doing the harm would see what they were doing and! STOP!

    Very thought provoking. It is true that terrible things can happen in daylight
    as well as in darkness. Ten for this.

    Warm regards,
