They will not win!

Today I can't be facetious. It isn't possible for me to try and find the funny side of things. Because there isn't one.

I remember watching the events of 9/11 unfold live on the television and I remember what I felt then. Today I was asleep when the explosions happened, but I am again watching the television and hearing about fatalities and ordinary, innocent people caught up in the horror. Today it was our turn.

We'd been expecting it for a long while. And we are used to it. In the past it was the IRA; today the terrorists are... who knows?

The response will be the same - we will never give in. We will make sure those who are trying to scare us into submission never ever win.

My only weapon against the perpetrators is a mere slap, but there are millions of us...

  2. I too am happy you are safe, J!

    Everytime there has been a suicide bomber in Israel, I have felt the same horror and barbarism that you and I feel today about this tragedy in London.

    May the hatred and insanity come to a halt.

  3. And I'll add mine. I'm horrified- and getting used to being horrified which is sick. Glad you are ok.
    May there be peace, and soon.
