Carry On Living

After what has happened in London yesterday I am left quiet numb to be honest. I couldn't even watch more than 15 minutes of news footage in one sitting before switching to something else on tv. I think I have gone through this whole 'why would anyone do such a thing' disbelief right after 9/11 and now I've become very cynical about it all, its the only way I can deal. One thing that made me laugh was George W. Bush's speech where he made himself out to be a champion of fighting poverty and rescuing the environment, when did that happen exactly. But that is whats gonna happen, the politicians will spin, someone will take credit and try and scare us and we are left to live in fear. Thankfully Londoners are very resilient people and they get on with their lives. I know I will be.

That George Bush thing was a riot wasn't it? Is he really that self deluded? Didn't he even SEE The Day After Tomorrow?!

Hey, I'm glad to see you're ok. I've been thinking about you since Thursday night when I realized I do know someone in London, then couldn't remember your blog name and was in Vancouver away from my home computer to look it up on my favourites list.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one feeling the way you do, especially since you actually live in London. Emotionally I haven't been able to get very "worked up" about this and I've been feeling very cynical. "How could they do this do us?" Seems like such a stupid question when we all know the War on Iraq was started on completely fabricated evidence. Violence just begets more violence. God help us!
