Flowers on Westminster Bridge, placed there in the wake of last week’s terror attack in which an assailant, named as 52-year-old Khalid Masood, killed three people and injured at least 50 as he drove a vehicle at high speed across the bridge along a pedestrian walkway. Crashing outside the Houses of Parliament he then stabbed to death PC Keith Palmer before he was shot dead by another officer. Addressing a vigil in Trafalgar Square in the aftermath of the attack, London Mayor Sadiq Khan said the city “will never be cowed” by terrorism. “Those evil and twisted individuals who try to destroy our shared way of life will never succeed and we condemn them,” he said.

One thought on “LondonLife – In the aftermath of tragedy…”
We will never be cowed? Not true. Terrorism changes people and cities for the worse 😦 I remember standing in a Jerusalem hotel room looking down at two morning school buses a few years ago. Terrorists massacred the school children and left the bodies on the street. Those families were destroyed.
