What a horrible thing to wake up to this morning. Anyone hear from meegannie? I know she's not in London proper but somewhere in the general area and may have friends in London.

I work with lots of writers in London, don't know where to begin to find out about everyone. Colleagues here have contacted friends there and found them safe.

everyone

My heart is breaking for Londoners and for everyone in and around the UK today. It might not mean much, but I'm feeling very much like I did on 9/11, and I just hope our British post-ers here know that we're pulling for them and hoping for the best.
Im ok too.... still stuck in the office but will be going soon....

no words can describe what Im feeling right now.....



still cant believe the news......

all of you, please please stay safe and take care

hugs

dougal

I hope this turns out to be a smaller tragedy than it seems at the moment

Thoughts and prayers to everyone in London. This feeling is grossly familiar.

I just hope there is no backlasch against the Muslim/Asian community in the wake of this. That would be very very sad.
Agreed on all accounts.

I have family that use the Kings Cross station on a daily basis. Two of them are cancer scientists, and live on Kings Cross Rd., just a 7 minute walk from the Kings Cross tube station. In fact, while I was in London for the U2 concerts at Twickenham, I stayed with them. Thankfully, they are all fine.

What I can't help but think about is how I used the Kings Cross tube station just two weeks ago... How I may have walked past, sat next to, chatted with people that may have been injured in some way today... Makes one realize how short and precious life is...

this is so saddening. i can't believe we are back here again in the midst of more terror attacks.

my prayers are with londoners and anyone else who has families or friends involved in this tragedy.

everyone in london please be safe tonight.

I know, I am tired of these terrorist attacks...

I would also like, if you do not mind, to spare a moment and also remember all the innocent civilians that die in Iraq every day on the hands of similarly-motivated terrorists. Unfortunately, and given that this has become a daily issue, they do not get the same kind of press coverage anymore.
