A great sadness comes over me every time I play this song. -- On the evening of 14 July 2016, a 19-ton cargo truck was deliberately driven into crowds of people celebrating Bastille Day on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, France, resulting in the deaths of 86 people and the injury of 458 others.

When I first learned of this, I did not immediately think "Oh, this must be an act of terrorism." I thought "as humans we have now reached the point of violence against ourselves because there are too many of us for our environment"

In our house we talk of the "Caring Capacity" of our planet, not the "Carrying Capacity". This violent act just struck me as reaching a "Caring Capacity" point.
