London Attack

Post by Mbast1 on Thu Mar 23, 2017 2:12 am

I'd rather avoid the political here, but to me this is more about the people. I, like everyone else, heard about what happened. I can only hope all of you and yours are safe and well. You all have my best wishes.
Mike.

Thank you, Mike. I'm glad to say that all my London relatives are safe and well. The bitter irony is that most of those who died were foreign tourists visiting London. I was sad to hear that one of them was from the USA Crying or Very sad

I don't know. It's a quirk of human nature that the closer someone is to you geographically the more you care, it's why newspapers report the way they do. That said, I don't want ANY human being to die like this, so I just find it all so ugly.

Anyway, glad you and yours are safe.

Thanks. I don't want anyone to die like that either. It's all so random and pointless. Such a horrible man. But he was outnumbered by all the people who ran to help, like the staff from the nearby hospital who ran to Westminster Bridge as soon as they heard. We even had an MP (Member of Parliament) try to give the policeman mouth to mouth as he lay dying! And the rest of the time we make jokes about MPs being useless and good for nothing but making speeches.

Which I think is the point of that kind of terrorism. Fear, confusion. Ugly.

Sometimes humanity isn't quite so bad.

I think politicians CAN be vital to social function, and people don't often know. They don't know what they do, so they think it's nothing. Mind you, some do seem to be in it for the power, but many of them just do a lot of work other people don't want to do. Glad this MP was in the news for a good thing.
