We are all Londoners today

"We are all Londoners today." That was the response from Jenny Dervin of Atlanta to the Times Online,and doesn't it describe the way we all feel this morning. The vibrant, tolerant city of London is today's front line in the battle for those western values that makes cities across the west the great places they are. The smiling, celebrating faces that were in evidence in London yesterday celebrating their Olympic victorywill be back, and when they are it will be a victory for all of us.


  1. Thanks for the link PC. I love the poem at the end. But I dare not use the words "bloody sods" myself for fear of understatement.

    While contemplating sympathy for London, I am forced to ask this question.... Why weren't we "all Iraqis, now" during the hsuB/Blair terrorists attacks that have continued on that country for the last 2&1/2 years ????? Why don't you people weep for the hundreds of thousands of innocent victims of the biggest terrorists? Food for thought.... please !
