In what Tony Blair is calling a terror attack on your country, our hearts and prayers go out to you on this horrible day. We stand by you just as you did us in our time of crisis. We wish you the best during this time.
Following the news all day..the scenes of crime are all the familiar sites which I go to often..stretchers ferrying our bodies swathed in plastic bags and blankets carrying someone's love one..missing ones..the gray day mourns as thousands slowly trudge back to work, coping as best with the inadequate transport system..the Olympic euphoria cruelly erased by this sombre nightmare, TV presenters adorn their dark suits and trying not to flinch from the sight of blood and maimed passengers with faces registering shock, numbness, pain and desolation..tonight the mortuaries of every London hospital will be filled with bodies of every unimaginable horror..psychiatrists reeling out their post-shock symptoms to those affected ..does life really go on ..zombie like , we see people keeping their stoical facade..yet one woman said it all as she crawled out of the hell hole ..she wailed in anguish : 'I just want to go home to be with my family...' that is where everyone in the world want to be in such awful desperate times..to feel safe in the embrace of our love ones and family..how hard is that to understand? Don't these terrorists have families they want to protect too?
Six ... Canada was listed on Alquaida's hit list months ago. Can't live in daily fear or we will be too paranoid to live our lives as usual. To change our lives because of that fear would let them win something over us. Can't let that happen.
Like a Brit said yesterday when interviewed... he had been injured in one of the bombings, he said: "It's always in the back of our minds that such a thing can happen, but it has to stay there, because if it comes in the front of our minds then we'll go out of our minds..." And that's how they live through it in England...
It seems the world has gone insane yet again. It never ceases to amaze me how we can go from a feeling of elation over London being named the Olympic choice for 2012..to a feeling of such utter chaos within the span of mere hours. The world put there arms around the US during 9/11...now once again she puts her arms around yet another land. during the worst attacks they have known in years. I believe terrorism is and always will be a threat in our life time. It is the innocent people that suffer. My heart goes out to the families and victims.
JUst to let u folks know that my family and I are safe. I have 2 American teenaged girls stranded with me .ON the phone all morning with their parents to pacify them.. They were due to leave for Wales today but as the whole city is cordoned off to make way for emergency services , they will be stranded till normal transport services resume . It is just too shocking to think that yesterday here in London there was mass euphoria from the Olympic news and this morning everything changes and it is panic and mayhem everywhere..
We live in such dangerous times..
Let's pray for the safe passage for all who are travelling at this time of the year..
