London Terror Attack March 22, 2017

 

40 people with critical injuries and 4 dead as alledged during yesterday's attack on Westminster bridge. Hmmmm.......I don't know what to say that hasn't been said already after yet another terrorist attack. 😪😪😪😪😪

 

All I keep telling myself is that it's good the attacker didn't have a gun, because the number killed would have been higher. Thank God also for the speedy intervention of the police and anti-terrorist officials. Especially PC Keith Palmer who gave his life to save others. 👏🏽👏🏽

 

I'm just shocked at the audacity, the cruelty, the evil behind a mind as it drives into a crowd of pedestrians! 😳😳But then it is this same ideology that decided the best way to mark the March 22 anniversary of the Brussels attack is to carry out a similar attack. Yeah! Doesn't that say it all!😡😡

 

I reminisce about the good old days when I was a teenager at school. The days when there were no terrorist attacks, when you can get on a plane with any amount of liquid and you don't have to be stripped searched. The days when most cities of the world were safe.

 

These days you cannot go anywhere in the world without doing a risk analysis of the probability of a terrrorist attack at your destination. The French, Romanian and Korean tourists injured in yesterday's attack must have believed London had a low risk of a terrorist attack before traveling here on holiday.

 

Will we ever have normality/safety again? Or is this the new 'NORMAL' ? It must be for our kids and the younger generation who never  experienced the simpler, safer times. For them such terrorist attacks is the norm in the world they have come to know.

 

So where do we go from here? What does the future hold for our world? Only time will tell I guess. I have hope though. I have the audacity of faith, so I can hope that one day there will be peace in the world yet again.

 

It is a sad day when people are killed and injured when they definitely didn't have to be. It could have been just another boring day of going to work, doing the school run or visiting Westminster and coming back home. But alas it is not to be for these victims.

 

May their beautiful souls find eternal rest because no one can attack them now. 🙏🏽🙏🏽
