WARNING: PHOTOS MAY CAUSE DISTRESS
I remember, ten years ago today, I took my son to school, then went to a friend’s house. I left something, so had to go back home. On the way, I saw a singular magpie and looked around for a second but there weren’t any. I laughed at myself as it was superstition the “One for sorrow, two for joy” rhyme.
I arrived home just after 9:30 am and realised I had left the TV on when I went out. What I saw on there, it can only be described as horror. London had suffered it’s worst terror attack in living history. Bloodied people were walking, or being carried, out of the underground. A bus was in tatters and the reporters were finding it difficult to speak.
Fifty-two people lost their lives on July 7th 2005.
