Terror in London

I had planned yesterday to log on and write on the G8 summit, which is currently underway in Gleneagles, Scotland, but I woke to news reports of a terrorist attack on London and my mind turned instead to my friends living in that city and their well-being. While there is much that could be said about some of the rhetoric following the bombings (in particular that of certain American politicians and media personalities) and the ramifications this catastrophe has for foreign policies of the US and the UK, now is the time to turn our thoughts to those who have suffered in this attack and the many other acts of violence that occur daily in many other parts of the world.
