Such a terrible day, for all of us, even those who were safe many miles away. The courage of those who were caught up in the London bombings and ensuing chaos remains a vivid memory.
My son, a frequent Tube-traveller, learned of the carnage from me when, desperately worried, I sent him a text - he got such a shock that he sent me an angry response. A friend who was near one of the Tube stations recalls walking across London with hundreds of other people, all drifting along, shocked and silent. We respond in so many different ways to extreme events.
This was written by a survivor in the week that followed. I wonder how she and all the others are now; they are much in my thoughts today.
