The City of London was rocked by a series of blasts in an apparent terrorist attack. The explosions came only a day after London was awarded the 2012 Olympics and as the G8 summit was getting under way in Scotland.
Today, we are all Londoners. Let the world know that the hearts and minds of Americans are with the people of London. I suggest sending flowers to Prime Minister Tony Blair's official residence at 10 Downing Street in London.
I think it is important for us to hold candlelight vigils, prayer services and to make outward demonstrations of support. I also encourage us all to call our friends in the United Kingdom. It is important for the surviving victims, their families and the people of London see that they are not alone in their grief.
Out of respect for the people of London, I will not post anything today other than updates about local events that have been called in response to the terrible attacks on London.
