7/7 Remembered.

No one can tell it as well as a Londoner. I hereby refer you to Kel from Osterley Times who gives a heartfelt account of his memories and opinions. Excerpt:

It began around 9.15 or 9.20. A right wing shock jock on the radio called Nick Ferrari reported three tube trains and a bus had been affected by "power surges". That's what they called it. "Power surges".

It was the inclusion of a bus that made my eyebrows lift. How does a "power surge" affect a bus?

The truth is that we had been waiting for it. We had always expected it to happen. We had always known that it would be the underground that they would hit

Read the rest.

Silence in Europe means a lot. In the Netherlands during rememberance day, we would be silent from 8pm till 5 minutes after during which all the church bells across the country would toll.
Carry on!

I remember this as if it were yesterday. It happened just after 1am my local time and I had just taken my headphones off from listening to music on my computer. I tuned in to CNN to see the headlines just before I went to bed and that's when I found out about this.

I remember praying that there were no casualties and not getting much sleep that evening.

Thank you very much for the link. And Gran I very much enjoyed your friend's piece.

I notice this morning that Michelle Malkin is calling London "appeasers". What a disgraceful thing she is.

Cyberotter, I haven't had the chance to hop over and check but that's common sense right? let the people themselves give the account especially since we know a few ourselves!
Granny, thx for the link, I checked it out. It was very heartfelt. words sometimes defy experiences that are multisensorial and bring loads of thoughts and questions up in our heads.And yet 'we try'...
Robbie, speaking of thoughts. You probably were thinking a whole bunch of things..did you blog already then?'re welcome. And I'm sorry
about that Malkin woman..ignorance speaks, once again.
