Pray for the victims.

Pray for us all. Let's not forget that we don't have a lock on terrorism. We don't own it, it's not all aimed at us, it isn't all about us, as M noted. In fact, we're pretty new to this whole thing. The UK has, sadly, a long history of dealing with such attacks.

I have been glued to BBC all day. I am struck by the dignity of their response, their coverage, and the fact that press conferences with leading authorites actually deliver useful information.

Then I read about how the U.S. press has made this all about us.

Sadly, I fear its motivation has so much to do with U.S. foreign policy (do we still call it that, sheesh).

I pray that the victims are in a better place. I pray that in the face of an increasingly fucked up world each one of us responds by using our life to make others' lives better.

Well said, M. Of course the US press has made this all about us, though. If someone in the US could trademark and copyright "Terror!" they would, and then force the rest of the world to pay licensing fees to use it. Desptie the fact that the rest of the world has had a much longer history of dealing with and fending off terrorist attacks.

Here's a link to an article on attacks in the UK over the past 25 years:

The U.K's history with terrorism is not "sad"
It is a direct product of their actions.
The attacks on London were done by a murderous group of individuals, who are hell bent on destroying western civilization.
