Chris, this all brings 9/11 crashing back for many of us: like you, near but not at the center of the violence, stunned by the disparity of values and broken hearted by the incomprehensible tragedy. Yes, our thoughts and prayers are for you and your homeland, for all victims of terrorism, and for the Earth we share. ~G

Cowards who take the lives of innocent unsuspecting people in the most brutal way possible to draw attention to what, a cause an injustice? Our prayers go out to the victims ,their families and friends.

My D/D went to Ground Zero from Boston, & put flowers there durin one of Her many visits to N E.. She did the trip 4 ME, She knew I wanted 2 go there but I jus could'nt make it, I wanted 2 go My self, but I aint as well as I used 2 B, the winters put Me down...I not thawed out yet from our '04 trip 2 Boston...NO I aint kiddin...that's Y We ALL comin BACK 2 Florida in Nov for 21 nites... 2 get re-chared.....
A lot of local, Churches open the doors & provide candles 4 folk 2 lite in memory, I done one on My way home from work 2 day..., We have wagons waitin in London 2B unloaded...many have U-turned, & goods have failed 2 get in2 the stores...so I guess folks gonna miss a few pickles...some folk gonna MISS a lot, a hell of a LOT more than food......God Bless them ALL, & once agn Many, Many thanks 4 Yr KIND WORDS...Chris.....

All my friends and relations (including my 86 year old mother-in-law, and young children) who live in London are encouraged by our national leaders to carry on life as usual, to use the subway and buses, and that this is the way to show the terrorists that they cannot succeed. We woke up this morning to hear the main story on BBC news is that the USAF has ordered its ten thousand staff in England not to enter the whole of London inside the beltway (M25), comprising over one thousand square miles, I guess. This is both on and off duty. You can imagine the effect of this information here in England. Is this decision common knowledge in the USA? Nick.

have not heard that on the news. It would not be a supportive move if that is the case.
We should be showing people how to go on and not be " terrorized" by the heartless, and confused maniacs who persist in killing to try to screw up a lifestyle they do not have or understand.

On the lunchtime news the BBC has just announced that, after the USAF in the UK was "beseiged" by reporters, meetings were held with senior politicians, and the decision has been reversed, after 5 days. Nick.

On the news they said the suspects were located in Yorkshire, so I immediately thought of you. Getting a little too close to home for you now! I'm glad they are hunting the bad guys down. Maybe all those cameras were good for something after all.

Question You are not alone!

Like Mr. Churchill said never never never give up!
Thanks for setting a good example for the rest of us in the face of such fearful things to persevere.
Blessings!
Steph

Chris, I'm not hearing anything about personal reaction towards the immigrant community. We did pretty well over here after 9/11. What's your take on feelings between the Muslim and non-Muslims? I can only hope some good will come from all the deaths to get the good people of the world to wake up and work together to stop these followers of a death cult. Jamie

Right now in the Leeds area, Muslims R VRY nervous, We were expectin a Multi race clash, riots, even Muslims r against Muslims..Well it's kinda slow at kikin off, so I guess things R gonna B jus fine, Sadly tho, there R a FEW mindless sods who think they can make things right IF they took the law in2 their Own hands...& start Pikin on the Honest Decent hard workin every day average families, & BLAME them, 'cos they R a MUSLIM, U kn wot I mean...Same tar brush, & YES the MUSLIMS R Scared...Vry SCARED of being hunted down, found guilty & Punnished 4 something that had NOTHING 2 do with at all...
( NEWS ), 3 of the 4 bombers were KILLED, one at large, ALL SEEN on CAMERA SMILING 30 mins B4 Explosions, Hire car found with Explosives packed inside.
Still a FULL POLICE / Army Alert... London IS gettin bk 2 bein mobile once agn, vry slowly tho, the People of Our Great City, r on edge, but takin it all in, & r MORE Alert & returnin bk 2 work...
Steph... If Our Great Mr. Churchill was STILL here...He would have Fought the Baddies in their OWN HOMES, nvr mind the Beaches... US Brits R jus like U Guys...Carry on reguardless...DO wat WE CAN, do our bit, BUT but PLEASE leave the FINDINS 2 the PEOPLE who r TRAINED in these unforseen tragic moments, Let them DO the KIKKIN of the right BADDIES...IF there IS any Kikkin 2 B done...Are'nt we ALL affraid, & sufferin enough, so lets NOT take it outta the WRONG, GOOD GUYS...OK...Hey I felt 911, jus as much as each & every one of U DID, I send MY DONATION 2 the Red Cross, I STILL wear My twin Flag PIN BADGE...& IF I gone 2 LONDON, I wooda bn turned around, cos so many People were helpin, there were jus 2 many...in this case too many hands made the work harder...Agn, Many FANX 4 Yr Support...May God Bless U ALL...Chris.....

Thanks for the update, Chris. That's the kind of news we don't get over here. Sounds a lot like what happened here after 911 - shows we're half a world away, be people are the same everywhere. Some scared, some vigilanties, lots of heros trying to help.

We had a 2 min Silence at work 2day, & as I am a Safety Rep, I actualy booked a Guy, who said I NOT got a DADDY...simply 'cos I SHUT his truck off whilst we were havin our 2 Mins...He said it did'nt affect Him, I Don't preach Religion / Politics... but it offended Me 2 C Him blatenly IGNORE the " Time Out Period "... He WILL get a Verbal warning, & I KN 4 a fact that He will NOT get any sympathy from anyone, Jus a lttl incident, I kn, but it's the Princible.
We R STILL on High alert, & houses R Still being raided by the Police & Anti Terr: / Agents, throughout the Whole of England, Arrests Have bn made & jus as one thinks it's all died down now, I can assure U, Nothin will B left unturned until those who done this awful attact on London's Innocent are Locked away 4 EVER...Chris.....
