London Atrocity

Its hard to comprehend the horror of yesterday's events in London. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the families caught up in this carnage, my sincere condolences for the people who have died and I hope that the injured heal well and quickly.
The emergency sevices, police, paramedics, fire brigade , ambulance, hospital staff and all the others involved in the rescues and aid must have had an unbelievable job yesterday and yet they coped magnificently. I hope they get help afterwards to cope with the sights they have seen.

I was supposed to be going over to London this week but i had cancelled a while ago due to other commitments.

On Wednesday, there had been good natured ribbing from French people about London winning in the Olympic hosting race over Paris. Yesterday and today therehas been shock, concern and solidarity with the UK.

Its hard to imagine the mentality of bombers who deliberately target civilians going about their daily lives.
