It's not my fault. It's not my fault that South Africa is corrupt. It's not my fault that gang wars and criminality has swept through the town in Sweden where I'm originally from. It's not my fault that terrorists are bombing the world and the city I used to call home. A city that still feels like home.

In The 'Hour Late'

As human beings, it is difficult for us to grasp the concept of time. It always feels like we will have tomorrow until it is too late.
