Attacks in London  
Blasts in London - Scotland Yard said it had reports of blasts at six central London locations on buses and underground trains.

They are saying it is terrorist attacks. 2 people have been confirmed dead already. It happened on the public transport systems (on the underground and buses), in 6 central locations. All the public transport systems have stopped, phone lines have gone down because everyone is trying to call out (or call in).

This is so sad and scary. I'm watching the Sky news coverage on TV, and it's awful. I recognise so many places they are showing, and in 3 months I will be back there again.

I just don't know what to say :( And less than 24 hours ago, they were celebrating becoming the hosts of the 2012 Olympic Games. How quickly things can change.

me neither :( I saw a post on the Vogue forums about an "incident" on the london Tube, but didn't think twice about it really (people over at Vogue will post about a cat crossing the road, really lol), and then a friend came on and said "did you hear the breaking news?" and told me about it. I'm watching it on ch. 9 now. It's making me feel so sad :(

So sad and scary and *thoroughly fucked up*. My close friends over there have all checked in to say they're okay and I hope yours have too. I hate seeing this, it's hurting, all those places, that city and its people I love...

I'm glad your friends are okay. I don't have any close friends in London (they are all outside), so I am not worried about anyone in particular, but the whole thing is horridly sad :(

Mum's freaking out at the moment too :X

It was my City. Where the explosions are concentrated was my area, two of the stops my stations day after day for years.

I regard cities as organic bodies... people moving in and out as this mutualistic body which rises and breathes and has a rhythm and heartbeat of its own...and that's the only way I can conceptualise it. An attack on this being, this body which I love.

Trafalgar Square was amazing yesterday. The energy and the weeping of a totally different sort. It was as if, in one loud moment, inspiration had been packaged and handed to us in a flurry of ticker tape and pigeons which could pass for doves in that light. And the contrast.. the contrast.

I'm not there at the moment. I've been away since yesterday afternoon and all I want is to be back and be there with her; no trains are running and I can't be there and be home and share in her pain. I can't...

It is sad. I am hoping for their safety...and I am filled with anger.
