My other half rang me to say that their had been reports of bombs going off in London and these reports were all confirmed by Internet sources and BBC world, which has been providing a blow by blow account of the catastrophe.
I know people in London and hope that they are OK. My brother went to London today, too, but having been confronted by a queue of around 300 people for a taxi at Paddington, decided to get on the first train back out of London. He is unscathed and seems to have been very lucky. I just hope that others that I know also managed to avoid being involved, although I have to say that my heart goes out to the victims and their families.
When, oh when, will terrorists realise that blowing up everyday people is not likely to change a darned thing, apart from the fact that overall ‘support’ for their causes will be rightly diminished by such abominable acts.
Stop reading, start speaking
Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.
Don’t these fools understand that they are making the lives of many of their own kind hell? Surely this is not a great thing to do.
Denmark and Italy have been threatened with similar attacks and I do wonder whether I am unfortunate enough to be living in one prime target – aka Milan. Still, what can you do? Nothing, zilch, apart from hope that you and yours are not caught up in some horrendous attack.
Life goes staggering on.
