As I write, there have been four explosions confirmed in London, three on the Underground and one on a bus. Details are very confused at the moment but it seems almost certain that the explosions are bomb blasts and part of a terrorist attack.

Its hard to say how I feel right now, just kind of numb. Ever since 9/11, people have half-expected a repeat in Britain that appears to have happened. The loss of life, thank God, is nowhere near the WTC attacks, but the shock of it happening makes me grieve as much as I did back then. My prayers and thoughts go out to my fellow human beings who are suffering in London. Tonight Sue and I will light a candle for them.


In five hundred years time, most of us will be forgotten dust. But Hitler will still be remembered, God loves irony.
