Something was wrong

When I flew from Lambasa to Suva there was something missing. Something very big.
But whatever it was it was good it was not there. It took me a while to realize.

No security control!
Can you imagine the time when we just stepped on a plane, without the hassle.

Without dropping the belt and holding on to your pants being stripped off your shoes...

Taking out your computer, and phone, and your shaving gel that can be explosive....

And being pushed forward by stressed security people that just watch you as an obstacle, as a problem if you are not fast enough.

And dare you if the arch is sounding the short alarm with a series of short peeeeeps!
You are taken aside and checked again while a triumphant guard pulls a bottle of dangerous water out of your backpack!

Can you imagine getting on board without ALL that?

Like fresh air after being suffocated in smoke, like eating soup with a spoon after years of handling a fork, like taking out pin out of your finger after years of pain....
