London, you hold many special memories for me. I spent two years living with you and while I was occasionally inconvenienced by the tubes stopping because of a bomb scare or a little bomb actually going off I didn’t live through anything like you have sufferered in the last 24 hours.
I got pregnant in London the next time and the last time I was there so I hope my sons father is okay for my sons sake, and his father’s I guess. I haven’t heard from his father for over a year now so perhaps he isn’t even living in London any more. Even if he is, he was always a night owl so the chances of him catching the tube, or any public transportation at that time of morning are pretty remote. But you never know.
My sincerest sympathies go out to the families of the dead, and to the injured. Even though I’m not religious, God bless.
