Just having lunch during our meetings. Everyone is glued to their laptops watching the unfolding story of the bombings in London. Some of the group are from London or have friends, family members or co-workers who work there. The rumors abound but it appears certain that a large number of people have died. Calls to cellphones in the area will not go through. It reminds us of the events of 9/11 although, so far, the explosions have been targeted at buses and the subway instead of massive towers.

What can one say when these things happen? Who would do such a thing and what do they hope to accomplish? Your heart breaks for those who have lost their loved ones and you can only pray that nothing more will happen.
