My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

Bombing in London much for the slow news cycle

Image Hosted by
My thoughts and prayers go out to the people of London today with the terrible events still unfolding. So many people killed and wounded, my heart weeps for them and their families. It was striking to see Tony Blair speak this morning backed by all of the leaders there for the G8 Summit.
Blair, backed by all the leaders of the G8 industrialized nations and guest countries including China and India, vowed the summit would continue regardless and said he would return to the gathering at the Gleneagles hotel in the evening.

America will stand with you. I hope that the resolve and solidarity conveyed in that image Of Tony Blair and so many world leaders carries Londoners through in the coming days, weeks and months and sends a message to those who wish us harm. The message that through all we will stand together in the face of terrorism.

I also hope that the cowards that organized these attacks are hunted down and sent off to Allah as is their fervent desire. Bastards.
