Thanks, Chris and Mark!

Watching the Queen, Prime Minister Blair, Prince Charles, and hundreds of English parishioners sing "The Star Spangled Banner" this morning was amazing and inspirational.

With a valiant ally such as England and the whole UK beside us, fanatic terrorists shall fail in their ultimate purpose.

Chris,

Thanks for the photo. It's really uplifting to know that we're not alone in this.

From what I saw of the 'Changing of the Guards' at Buck House there seemed to be a large number of US residents and tourists in attendance as well as our own people.


I only wish our own national anthem had the 'gravity' of your own or the 'fire' of France's 'La Marseillaise'

Post The queen ...etc

Sorry I feel compelled to say this but none of that made any difference. I think most of all its important to realise that its a humanitarian response.

Most of all at this point, I just hope that foolish actions don't make the situation for all of us much worse.

Just edited this post -"foolish actions", it looks like a premonition I had then has been borne out now looking at Iraq and Afghanistan, sadly

I too hope things won't worsen for us all but I know that can't be. The gauntlet has be thrown down and to keep ignoring their destructive tactics would be the same as condoning it. Tuesday has already proven that when nothing is done the terror escalates. What next, nukes or bio attacks?

They showed the truly heartfelt response of our UK brothern and we knew they, the people, felt our pain. A woman in France was questioned on her response to the attacks at a memorial ceremony and her response was that we are all American now. That was very touching to hear. It helped erase those awful pictures of people dancing in the streets to our suffering.

I certainly have to agree with you Debbie. It *has* to be stopped.

Quoting the gentleman in London.....

I think most of all its important to realise that its a humanitarian response. People all over the world have felt a tremendous feeling of horror and revulsion at this act.


The general feeling in my neck of the woods is a humanitarian response to the plight of the victims but in no way is further appeasement recognised as the way forward. Those days have gone.
