London

I was all set to post a couple of picutres of Sylvester when I came in this morning. Then, walking through the skywalk I passed a TV that was talking about this:

Two weeks to the day after the first bombings in England three London Underground stations have been evacuated following reports of incidents of trains. This just seems un-imaginable to me that it is happening in London.

Almost four weeks ago my sister-in-law returned from a three year stay on an airforce base about two hours away from London. I guess when I think of England, I think of a place much like the United States. (And no... it's not just because they speak English) I realize that they have a queen, but I still think of it as a mostly democratic country, much different than Iraq and Afghanistan. These are the places that you think of bombings and terror, not England.

It really makes you think, could something like that happen here? I know that is what the terrorists want, to make people afraid, but I still can't help but think about it. My thoughts and prayers are with all of those people over there. No one should have to go through this.

Heather, what do you mean could it happen here? It does happen here... However much we feel like we are in a protective bubble in Iowa... we shouldn't... have you forgotten? Oklahoma city bombing... Waco... 9/11?? Though only one of these were committed by "Terrorists"...All three incidents torrorized innocents. The world is a crazy place - and no one is truley "SAFE"
