Nothing Like Something to Focus On
I’m a Londoner by birth, by dwelling and by choice. I’ve travelled through Liverpool Street station, twice almost every weekday, for the last seven years. I work about 5 minutes from Russell Square. I’ve worked in Aldgate and it contains some of my favourite restaurants and fondest memories of friends I no longer see. My new job is at Old Street.
To me these weren’t just acts of “random terrorism”, I’m taking them personally.
To those that died today may you go to a better place than this. To their families and friends, my thoughts and sympathies are with you. To those that did this or helped them to do this, I pass my anger and a promise; look for our response in the thunder.
