We've bounced back pretty well. I wa so impressed with the resuce teams and generally people's attitudes of getting on with it.


Oh gosh, my dear, I totally forgot that you were from London. Thank goodness you are safe. And I totally agree that a terrorist bombing is a tragedy if only a single person is killed or seriously injured--if that person were someone you loved, then that would be all that mattered.

Sending my love and blessings to all you Brits. May we know no more sorrow.


Thank you for telling us what it's like there. My thoughts are with all there.


I'm so glad that you and yours are safe. The attacks in London are just terrible and my thoughts are with you all. Any bomb or attack is too much.


The attitude of London and its people to pick up and move on is very impressive. And though you may not know anyone,living there amongst it is stressful and upsetting too. Take care.

I am glad that you are doing well. I agree with you -- I think we have to look at each lost life on an individual basis. To the families, one loss is one too many.

I was in the World Trade Center when it was bombed in 1993 and so 911 hit very close to home. I will never forget the waves of grief and sadness that I felt. I wish we didn't have to live in a world where people committed such unspeakable acts of cruelty against one another.

I am not so bothered about hierarchies of loss as I am by the suggestion I heard made by someone that the terrorists had it in for Britain more so than for America because it's a much more "secular society." Apart from that being a totally loony notion, given the comparative scale of the destruction, I have to say, I went, "huh?"
