I only found out this afternoon, about the terrorist bombings in London. It was such a shock I forgot to withhold the swear words, and wondered whether any of the boy's friends or relatives in London were affected. My next thought was, 'I wonder if it was a Parisian retaliation for not getting the 2012 Olympics?'.
Anyway, I was relieved when the boy told me his cousins were okay. And hopefully my brother's friends, whom I stayed with years ago, are okay too.
What crappy people terrorists are, to target innocent civilians.
