I knew this kind of thing would happen sooner or later. Unfortunately many innocent people were killed and hurt. I lived in the Suffolk county (70 miles north of london)in england for the past 8 years and i went into london all the time. The attack was not just on England but the whole world because that city is so diverse and with all the tourist that frequent the city from all over the world. My prayers are with the families of the victims. God bless and protect us all.
Welcome into your arms the victims of violence and terrorism.
Comfort their families and all who grieve for them.
Help us in our fear and uncertainty,
And bless us with the knowledge that we are secure in your love.
Strengthen all those who work for peace,
And may the peace the world cannot give reign in our hearts.
To the people of London, you have in you the resolve of your parents and grandparents who survived the Battle of Britain. Our country fought back after Pearl Harbor and 9/11 and you will also prevail. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers as you struggle to come to terms with the attacks on your own soil and learn to function in this new world where safety can't be taken for granted. God Bless.
The terrorists didn't get the response they were hoping for - The US markets ended up, Londoners went about their day as best they could. While this was a horrible attack, it did not disrupt the G8 meeting nor did the world stop. Oil futures even ended higher.
