This a terrible thing and to think this has hit our country is horrible. With our Olympics coming in a few years, how can we be able to say we are safe?
I used to live in london and and i was visiting there over summer break and i heard this huge crash. it was very frightening. im sorry to all who died.
It was so scary.. We had classes at St. Giles College (London Central) when heard the explosion.. We couldn't imagine that all those was happening.. How people can be so cruel? This is unfair. Why should innocent people die? How did they deserve it? ...
I can not believe someone would attack our great city like that. All we try to do is live in peace and harmony. Our utopia has been deflated and we are back to the real world of terrorism and violence.
my heart goes out to all those who have been affected. these cowards should be hung, drawn and QUARTERED!
aisha ali (croydon)
I am a Muslim and I here today speak out to London and say that I am ashamed of those Muslims who caused distruction on the 7th of July. How can people be so cruel? I have one thing to say to those bombers, you are not just killing people, you are killing your own kind too. And one message to those who were affected on the 7th of July, I, and everyone else, is thinking of you, may you find hope in the future.

When we first heard of the bombings we were utterly shocked that something like this would happen. We have family in London and were concerned greatly. We were scanning through the television tryin to get the best broadcast. London is a great city and with these bombings, londoners shall come closer together as one and not be in fear. For all the victims of these bombings, my prayers are to you and you family. As hours go by and the worl keeps on turning, we shall all look forward to the future. Thank You
Everyone accepts that the bombings are horrific and that the perpetrators are thugs and bullies. Whilst we are a democracy does anyone feel as I do that by publishing certain facts like fall in tube passengers, not enough police to deal with other crimes etc is playing into their hands? I would like to praise the young man on the news, speaking from his hospital bed, having lost his lower leg, for his courage and dignity in front of the camera - he does more against the plotters that any hate attacks.
Carol in Canada
We Canadians were utterly horrified by the London terrorist bombings. As we watched our television screens hopeful for survivors, we prayed for the injured and for families who had lost their loved ones. We were no less fearful for you two weeks later when un-detonated bombs were placed in your public transit by zealots. Londoners, your greatness is marked by your courage and faith as an example to the free world and a credit to the future and history of your country. May the spirit of goodness bless you all.
To those of the terrorist ideology who have been told by your leaders that you will be rewarded in heaven - that God will laud you for taking away the lives of innocent others: you have been lied to. Why have you allowed anti-life, false prophets to pervert your minds, hearts and religious faiths? You will be despised and reviled by your surviving families and future generations. As for your places in "heaven?" Think again.

London attacks are just another example of the World’s current awful condition. Unfortunately, people have lost their minds. I’ve tried to figure out an explanation for someone willing to kill some others he/she might have never seen before. I cannot really understand this mentality. In the name of Islam, some extremist Moslems grant themselves the right to kill others. Although I’m not a very religiously-educated Moslem, but I know that this is not accepted by all means; it’s quite obvious after all. Those extremists are doing nothing but deteriorating the image of Islam. I’m afraid they have accomplished their task successfully.
Out of curiosity, I would like to question the main motive for such reckless acts. What do they get out of killing innocent civilians whose only fault was being British in our instance? I cannot really believe that some people have become that extremist and racist. Regardless of whatever they have in mind, this is extremely illogical and doesn’t make any sense at all. Do they see their deeds as some sort of taking revenge for the Moslems who are being killed everyday in some other parts of the world? Even if it’s so; but why kill innocents? If it goes like that, the world will be no more very soon then, I assure you. Hatred in those criminals’ hearts is too black. Violence feeds violence as it were. Let me view what’s going on from a rather primitive viewpoint. I shall give a simple example to simplify things even more. Let’s have A & B as two brothers and C & D as two other brothers. Now C kills A and runs away with his deed as C is too evil and influentially powerful as well. Well, is this a motive or an impulse for B to kill D then? Is it like tit for tat? This is exactly what’s going on nowadays. But people, we should put an end to this massacre. It’s high time now we forget about our little insignificant differences. Each one of us has the full right to believe in whatever makes sense to him/her. However, it’s not anyone’s right to start killing and terrifying others only because they are different. Here comes Edward Saeed’s notion of “The Other”.
Maybe it’s man’s nature to be extra cautious of something new that he hasn’t experienced dealing with before. Well, that’s quite understood. We have to be careful about new things that pop into our lives all of a sudden. But, we shouldn’t take a negative attitude from the very beginning. We shouldn’t build or create a stereotype because we have been told or warned about something or because we have had an unpleasant experience with a member of the group under study. My point is that we shouldn’t rush into prejudgments. Edward Saeed’s idea of “The Other” sounds so appealing to me simply because it makes a lot of sense especially nowadays where people have stuck to their pre-conceived ideas and have become unwilling to give them another shot as it were. The Other is different, thus the Other is bad! But why is the Other bad? Is it because we view ourselves as good? Well, this could be a good explanation as to why we tend to have those feelings of hatred towards the Other. I would advocate the fact that this is something that gets fed by our surrounding rather than what others may claim - that it comes by birth. I don’t think it comes by birth because I believe that man can accommodate and cope with any other creature living with him from the very beginning. Thus, it’s not part of our collective consciousness as it were. For instance, let a baby live with a pet at home, after a while, you’ll realize that the baby and the pet have developed a wonderful relation based on mutual love and care, although the pet is something extremely different, it’s a different species in the first place! Thus, from our “mature” viewpoint, we can consider the pet as an “Other”. Well, if hatred and fear of the “Other” don not come by birth, how do they come into being then? Who feeds them and lets them grow to the extent that makes us create stereotypes? I’m afraid it’s the surrounding! It’s the upbringing that’s based on sick old notions.
John Carson City, Nevada
Bless all of you brave Londoners. Keep the stiff upper lip. My Aunt and Uncle live in London, so I watch what's going on carefully. Be careful, we are thinging of you.
I highly commend you Londoners. You all are much better prepared and smarter than us Americans. You must keep vigilant about the shoot-to-kill policy and do not give in to being politically correct, it will get people killed. Here in America we are too concerned with being politically correct than to protect ourselves. Terrorist show no mercy, the only way to stop them is to show no mercy. They don't understand anything else. You are much stronger than we are, keep up the great work. My heart goes out to all of you.
We must stay together as a nation and fight. Immagration must be looked at and these people who live in london (UK) who feel that they must fight for another nation or religion should be deported along with family and friends who have the same beliefs as the bombers.
I think who done like this tragedy things he is not human and he is criminal man and he is cravenand i hope all the world live in peace far from the terrorizing
I would like to say that i wrote these words, i did not, but i will pass this on in the great words of this poem.
You come to place your bags of hate
On bus and train, you made us late
Yet we'll be back again tomorrow
We'll carry on despite our sorrow
Your bags of hate caused some to die
Yet we stride out strong with heads held high
You'll never win, we will not bow
You can't defeat us, you don't know how
This London which we love with pride
Is a town where scum like you can't hide
Don't worry we will hunt you down
Then Lock you up in name of the Crown
We're London and we're many races
Just look you'll see our stoic faces
We all condemn your heinous act
You will not win and that's a fact
We'll mourn our dead and shed a tear
But we will not bow to acts of fear
You're out there somewhere all alone
There's nowhere now you can call home
Olympics ours, we've won the race
Your timing then, a real disgrace
Our strength you'll find remains unbowed
We're London and we're very proud
I would just like to say that even though I do not live in London I still feel very connected because I have a great love for this place. I was having a sleepover with my friend and we just about to fall asleep when I was fliping through channels and I found the coverage on CNN. We watched the news for about 2 more hours and didn't go to sleep till about 3 am. Im still in shock and I check the news daily for new information on this prediciment.
SIMON EJIGBERERIMU NIGERIA
So very, very heartbroken for the citizens of London. You are in our thoughts and prayers. More than ever, I am looking forward to my upcoming visit.
Faisal , London
The bombers were from an ethnic minority group, I belong to the same ethnic group and I hereby declare that I have no problem in being searched or stopped to ask questions since I have nothing to hide and take whatever it takes to ensure security in my city London.
May the force be with us
huge disaster,incredible,i wonder if it has any relationship with the Olympic Games
i really condemn these blasts in which inocent people ov london were killed...but plz at this momment when the europe is in pain think about those million ov innocent peoples who r being killed in iraq ..afghanistan..kashmir.....palestine. i admit the people killed in london were innocent and the bombing was terror attack but don,t u think the people ov above mentioned countries r also innocent .....these bombingz were a cruel act but iz it nt cruel 2 kill million ov muslim people just fr the sake ov dominationn....? i really ask mr.Bush and mr Tony blair 2 have a look on their polices
i was really stunt 2 hear about the blasts .i m really sorry fr the inocent people who died in these terror attacks.....i and all over nation (pakistanis) hate those people who have tried to stained the name ov islam by this cruel act
i feel sorry for the people caught up in the bombings and the guy from brazil but the shoot to kill has got to stay because we cant show these suicide bombers any mercy like they showed us none
Well done to the Police, MI5, SAS and the other agencies involved in the swift arrests of the suspected suicide bombers. I am sure this will minimise the risk of further attacks and it also reassures Londoners that all that can be done is being done.
I greatly condemend the bombing against the inocent london people, i am a muslim but the people who have done that and saying them self muslim is not the muslim because it is against the teachin gof islam to kill inocent people.
I have a great sympathey for the decesed family of this disaster.
I believe that this kind of tragic atrocity can't be stopped in a single place or town on earth as it is a global and strictly political problem now a days which has absolutely no connection with any religion . The Holy Quran says about "Jesus" that he was made of "Soul of God" unlike other common human beings . Islam is closely connected to the other religions and these all are sent by one "God" . So , there is no conflict between the religions . London bombings , Sept the 11 , Afghan and Iraq war , 50 years old Palestine & Israel conflict , these are all 100% political and due to some of the political leaders' and country's contradictory selfish faulty foreign policies thousands of innocent people are beeing killed and have been suffering every where on earth . I believe that this problem can only be solved politically in a diplomatic way and of course globally . Otherwise , it can't be stopped . We can follow Swiss foreign policy "hurt no one and don't get hurt" !
The problem that the country faces is the illegal immigrants and people who come to the country to leech off of the benefits system. There are hard working people who come here illegally from countries like Ukraine only to earn money and save it, but the government seems to think this is a much bigger problem than work-evading religious people.
The peddlars of hate such as Bin Laden and all his cronies will end up in hell. God will be the ultimate judge. They are violent criminals, madmen that use religion as a foil to hide behind to attack western culture. They have no respect for any alternative way of life other than their own perverted one - these people have no remorse for their actions or logic to support their their actions, just blind hatred. It was a mistake to attack Iraq but the irony of it now is that it was the liberation of Iraq from a cruel Dictatator that has given them the opportunity to carry out their murderous attacks. Sadam would have just gone in and wiped out complete communities with any hint of insurrection and was resposnsible for the killing of tens if not hundreds of thousands of innocent muslims. The bombings of 9/11, Madrid and London were targetted at destroying freedom, democracy and tollerance of all religions and race. They will not succeed in destroying us and continuing to hold on to these ideals and way of life.
I have great respect for the British people and there attitude of racial equality. However stereo typing a whole ethnic group because of a few with criminal intention is very racial. This is discrimination and police have to be very prudent in making sure that there is sufficient evidence to support an arrest. Otherwise Londoners of all backgrounds should be aware that they might be next. The last thing we need to see is the unjust arrestment of innocent civilians; similar to the incident with the Brazilian citizen, which lead to the death of a Brazilian man. Londoners should agree that police brutality should stop, and proper civil liberty should be upheld.
i am so sorry for all the people who lost their lives and their loved ones, hope these blasts stop.god bless the people of london.
Our prayers and thoughts are with all Londeners....I think we should also pray for the people who are doing this ...that they may see the error of there ways.
Steve: I don't think the bombers themselves are cowards - what I do think they are is ridiculous gullible "mules". The people who put these half-wits up to it and keep their own heads down are most definitely cowards. I agree that none of them should be glamourised, and our strongest propaganda weapon against them is humour and derision.
hope all these blasts stop soon.God bless all the people who have lost loved ones
Osman, Khalid (London, Ealing.)
It is lucid that these martyrs having been living for this day, which has created a lamentable prevalence in London. I furthermore believe that Muslims will now be stigmatized as a result of
a mental defectiveness a few men labeled “Islamic Terrorist” suffer. However, what many people act oblivious about is the so-called religious war in the Middle East; nevertheless, seldom is it mentioned in the daily newspapers like the Evening Standard, The Sun, and thus forth, to inform people of why this repugnance will persist among Muslims and Christians---it’s amazing that the amount of news that happens in the world every day always just exactly fits the newspaper---people ought to become open-minded and know the truth. Notwithstanding the truth hurts. It is "us" (Europeans and Americans)that the people in the Middle consider terrorist. On the other hand, we suspect them--Weird isn’t it?
(Just if someone could ask these "terrorists" to compromise, it would be terrific.) Hopefully, this shall end soon.
I think it is terrible because People should just put things behind them .Everyone should support the Police to find everyone included .
why call them terrorists they are cowards,call them that,don't give them some hyped up name that makes them feel special
some one behand london bomb not muslim but devil not cristian but devil not jew but devil, carefull to atack innocent people godbless you london people
I really am sorry about this.God bless people who has suffered terrorism or any way of violence.Lots of love from Spain
I am sad for those who lost their lives in London, and for those who were injured. Tragic sudden death is the hardest on the ones who are still living. May they rest in peace, and may we find the ones responsible.
On July 19th, 2005, in the afternoon, I heard "London Bridges" played once by the ice-cream truck in Astoria (Queens) New York. I am an American and all my life here in America...I have never heard "London Bridges" being played by the ice-cream truck. I never I.D. a face, only the truck. I only thought that I shouldn't mention it as a watchful citizen. My deepest condolences to England and others around the world deeply suffering from these barbaric attacks.
Toni - NYC USA
VAS - I think you should be put away in a mental hospital. It people like you who think like you that causes all this pain to the inconcents. From NYC to London to Spain to the World my heart, prayers and thoughts are with you all.
Two minutes of silent meditation for your tragedy was given by the Thursday afternoon youth and adult volunteer interpreters and related staff at the Oregon Coast Aquarium,USA. It is only through peace in the world that peace can come to our hearts.
MICHELLE OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA USA
On 9-11 the USA experienced a terrible act of hate. As a Oklahoman living in Oklahoma City, USA I along with other Oklahomans had already experienced our very own terrorist attack on one of our federal buildings. The attack killed several people including children because the building had it's own day care center for children.
Hate breeds hate and hate
"is not" of God... "it is" of the Devil. Turn away from hate which is of the devil and embrace love which is of God.
I often wonder along with the blood and tears of the victims and the loved ones of those lost how God himself must weep at mans ability for self destruction.
I am deeply shocked and saddened by the recent bomb exposions in London. I dont understand how people can have so much hatered for their fellow mindkind in there hearts. What I find even more disturbing is that these terrorists were born and grew up here in England which makes trying to make sense of the situation why this act was carried out all the more difficult to comprehend. God Bless all the innocents who lost their lives may the Lord be with there families and also with the innocent familys of the men that carried ou these attacks.
Suzie ( NL )
I am disgusted at what has happaned - no one has the right to kill anyone - in Israel , in Palestine, in London ! - Terrorists should be eliminated whatever religion they claim themselves to be -christian moslem or jew.
Prayers are for ALL true believers and mankind -
paul singh, morley
briton will stand united and will defeat these nasty people who think they are doing wright by their religion! ISLAM IS SUPPOSED TO BE A PEACEFULL RELIGION!!!! and you narrow minded individuals are casting a bad light! stop these acts of terror there is no need!!!!!!!!!!!1 i am a london traveler and these acts will never stop me from treveling. london is STRONG and we will stand UNITED!!!!!!!!
Its clear from perpetual attacks all over the world from islamic fundamentalistic organisations that time is ripe for nation to frame stringent policies governing safety of their nation and citizens.
London Bombers' Motives Remain a Mystery
so we can not say that this act is done by terrorists.
theres might be any other thing which is responsible for this act.Im sorry for those who have lost their friends and family! Rest in peace and god bless them
Marijn Companjen, The Netherlands
Let us please remember it is everyones duty to brake the chain of hatred against any human being for any cause or idea,
Their are a thousand reasons to love when their is just even a moment of negativaty evolving around us leaning and or aproving towards violance, because of one or a couple minds that have forgotten or sadly maybe never knew what being human is about.
It is good to realise that we might be responsible in our own little ways for those circumstances so the best way to resolve this, is to love and live life uncondisionaly starting ofcourse with ourselfs. In rememberence of the victoms and their families and their los. So that this world will be a better place for our children when we leave.
My brother skipped death! My brother was going to Russel square for a Head Masters course, when at Leicester square the first train was packed of people but he managed to get in, if he had caught the second train, i could of lost my brother.
Im sorry for those who have lost their friends and family! Rest in peace and god bless
im 11, i think all of this is stupid peoples lifes are at risk in london.what is blair doing about it?nothing just starting war!!!!!! my heart goes out to everyone involved in the accident!!!!
It is fact that people do not seem to recognize horror until they experience it themselves. I am disgusted by the terrorist attacks againt England, Spain, and United States, however we should look around the world and see for ourselves the problem we are causing to other people/countries. The Palestinians don't have peace, the Iraqi's are going through the same situation on a daily basis. What makes us better? Why do we feel the lives of our children are more valueable than that of an Iraqi/Palestinian or anyone else for that matter. Please in the name of God, let us stop the killing. Really, we should make an effort, for the sake of our children, to make the world a better place. Money is said to be the root of all evil, well in this day, Oil, greed, power, hatred and it goes on... all can be added to that phrase. Let us give peace a chance.
Wolfram Kuss, Germany
I spend the 7th on the internet waiting for reports from my London internet friends and listening to the radio that reported almost non stop. It is dreadful that a few people can bring sorrow over so many people - direclty involved like wounded, dead, relatives and friends, those almost hit (a friend of mine was 2 minutes away from the first subway blast), those worrying about loved ones or friends, and those just reading about the harrowing events.
The only way forward is to keep going and unspectacular , patient police work.
I know you will keep a stiff upper lip!
I am looking forward to be over in autumn.
My heart is bleeding for all Londoners after this cowardly act. All terorists are cowards. Period. You cannot blame GWBush or America for what is happening. If you are that simple minded you need to maybe pick up a book or two. How many times have we heard on this forum "if the USA just leaves Iraq then this will all stop"? Are you serious? Do you think the terrorists will then stop bombing innocent people? Never in a million years. These cowards are fanatics. They have no sense of a civilzed world. There is only one way to deal with these cowards and the USA,UK and its allies will prevail. And also, I think it is a little selfish to want the USA to just pick up and leave Iraq. Believe it or not, the civilized people of Iraq do want us there and would be left for dead. Who are the one's killing innocent people in Iraq? Just yesterday there was a car bomb that was detonated in a group of children. Is that the USA fault. The only way to win this war on terror is to pick a side. You are either with the good guys or the bad guys. The line is clearly drawn. We in the USA support Britons and know they will pull through just fine. They are not cowardly. Remember, to win this war on terror we need to stick together and be vigalent. And if America could ever fight a damn war without it's hands behind its back, then maybe this thing would be over by now. We love you London:)
E.ahmed ( The Netherlands)
You know what?!?!?!? I am confused, angry, sad, dishearten and my list can goes on. I hear myself apologising for the deeds of some murders and most of all taking a clear stand from the horror that they have committed. But then I hear people saying why us, looking all too surprised.. Why not U, why not me, why not London, why not USA??? it is happening in the rest of the world aint it??. Look around you .. dont you think people in Iraq ask themselves that question frequently?
People!! there is a reason why the world is around. what goes around comes around. let us not be blinded by what these terrorists are doing but what their purposes are. AND the way I see it , they want to create hatred and distraction within the multicultural western world.
I will conclude my message by saying that I am so proud of the Londoners for how they handled the situation.
My prayers goes out to all those victims.
Israel is not the only place where this is a normal everyday occurance. In Iraq 3-4 bombings a day is the average. In Palestine it's not suicide bombers that you fear but the state-legitimised Israeli soldiers who can shoot you at will. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. I agree that nothing can validate these acts - they are absolutely despicable. But it is only when we start to give equal value to all life, western or eastern, muslim or jew, white or black, and treat all killing of innocent civilians, whether it be by militants or a nation state with equal condemnation, that we can start to move forward.
I would like to sympathise with all of those people who lost their lives and where injured, and to their families my sencere condolences. I hope and pray that there are no acts of violence against Muslims. Muslim people are a peace loving people. The individuals who misinterpret the Holy Quran, do it for their own misguided political views. As an Irishman living in Britain I know how worrying it can be that there could be reprisals against you due to the actions of individuals acting in your name. The English/British are a very tolerant, forgiving people and have a great spirit. They know that the bombers did not represent the the veiws of the majority of Muslims.
Nicholas, Athens, Greece
Terrorism, in any form or expression, is unacceptable and contempt by any society – modern or ancient - as the most barbaric way to express or resolve political or religious differences.
Unfortunately, historically speaking, the western civilization receives back the trend set in the past.
Now is the time to consolidate and try to discourage such actions to be repeated by trying to understand our neighbors.
Thank God, religions that made it to our days, believe in justice and as WE are behind religions and its interpretations, WE should make sure that the people behind this and any such attack will pay for their monstrosities, not by retaliation- as it would perpetuate the trend- but by bringing them to justice.
my Message is for Muslims, being a Muslim i should say that these kind of activites are against our peaceful religion, no where in the Quran Allah said that You kill non Muslims, So please Please all Muslims try to impress non-muslims with you acts not with these kind of terrorits activites....i pray for all the peoples who died in Blasts and pray to Allah to give sense to those non sense Muslims
Nothing can validate these acts, but at the same time you have to be thankful that we live in a place where this is not an every day occurance. In Isreal people live with this fear on a daily basis. Its normal. But I find it hard to understand how killing can be normal. Maybe we can now sympathise better with these people, and understand how they feel when a bomb goes off and destroys everything they hold close, including their own feeling of security.
And for all of the folks whose lives has been shattered,
People experiencing, the emptiness, feeling the void,
Or watching, waiting and praying for a loved one ...
There are no words, no solace that one can give or say
That will lessen the burden, or take the hurt and pain away
But do not allow hate to creep in as your companion,
As it will rob you of love, compassion and understanding.
Stand tall, London, for love, equality, freedom, peace...
Sonya Rose, NYC, USA
Yes. I am a witness to this kind of horror and shame. I think that it is a cowardly thing to take innocent lives for foolish glory. There is no act of heroism here. My heart bleeds for all the lives who are lost, for their family and friends who are suffering...My deepest condolences.
luca Genoa Italy
I reached London the 7th 4 holiday from Genoa, Italy.Many things could be said, many emoctions could be felt,but I can say (from my Italian point of view)that Londiners have already won at least that first battle against terrorism, with their self control, their determination and stoicism.They gave a lesson of civil life to the world, which surely is the start point for teaching the most important values of a civil society.Though it's been a traumatic experience 4 me, I've been proud to have been in London the 7th and to have shared the emoctions with you. And I trust terrorism will be fight successfully in the future.Londiners people have already won by their reaction
i am terribly shocked by what happened in london on 7/7. london is a great united community which will not be divided even by these cowardly attacks, and thats why we desserved to host the 2012 olympics. our thoughts and love are with all those who died or suffered due to the attacks. May there be peace in the world, and may all those who are willing to take their lives in order to destroy the lives of a multitude think before they act. vamos uruguay carajo.
I strongly sympathise with the people who died as they had families and friends who cared for them. At the other point I see this as a revenge of what is happening in Iraq and Afghanistan while there are 1000's of innocent being killed and raped and there is no one to sympathise and all america can say is sorry. Gautenamo is one of the crucial example for muslims to drive crazy and I'm surprised that yet nobody even thinks about them?
I'm muslim and strongly condemn these attacks but one way or another Britain is responsible for it too!!!
I am an American and was visiting London with my husband for the first time. We were stepping on the tube at Victoria station when the bombings occured. It brought back all those horrible feelings from 9/11, and my respect for the British increased when I saw the determination and resolve on their faces. I will never understand such hatred and lack of respect for life. People just want to live their lives in peace. How do you fight against people who think this type of martyrdom will get them into heaven? To Stacie-Marie who lost her friend my heart goes out to you.
My condolence to those who have been victim to this attack. My paryer and sympathy for you. At the same time my hatful disapproval to these extremist who brought nothing but the shame for themselves.
i think its horrible. all the children and the babies that died or could of died in that outbirst. if i were in charge i would do all i could to help london. thanks for reading my opinion. xxxx

To the people of the Great nation, England. Our prayers and thoughts are with you.
As has been the case so often in history, your courage is exemplary of what bravery is really is.

My heart goes out to all Londoners. I visited Lonon last March and just love the city and the people. I live not far from the World Trade Center in NY and know the sadness and shock that enveloped us when we were attacked -- How do we stop this?
I was distraught to hear then news about the bombs. Those terrorists will not weaken anyone, but make us stronger, this will just make us want to get the culprits even MORE! My heart goes out to all those involved in the incident those injured and those who lot their lives, everyone please stay positive about catching the people who done/organised this tragic event. The emergency services were fantastic and i look up to you sooo much, thank you for helping everyone!!

Our sympathy and prayers go out to all Londoners. We understand your grief and pain. Stay strong and do not fear! We stand with you in denouncing the evil that threatens us. May you find peace again.
I think that it is a disgrace that terrorists have attacked london. There is no need and all the innocent people that have suffered for this will always be remembered. Great sadness fills my heart when human beings attack others for no reason. I think that the people who are responsible for this sould be killed also, now i know that you should never step down to their pitiful level but they deseve the worse.(Even though killing them is not the worst). They don't deserve to live after what they have done or even planned. JUSTICE MUST DONE!!!!

I have been in London for one and a half years and I have returned a few months back. I am so attached to this city that when I heard the news of the bombings I broke out and could not stop my tears. This city of tolerance and innocent people was hit by the terrorists who do not have any faith or religion at all, because, every religion loves humanity and hates crime and terror. I offer my deep condolences to those families who have lost their loved ones in these attacks . I hope these culprits are soon brought to book.

May God be with the families and friens of the victims... and give them the strength and courage to rise above the atrocity.. and live their lives peacefully..
I WAS TOTALLY SHOCKED WHEN I FOUND OUT WHAT HAD HAPPENED. I NEVER THOUGHT THAT I WOULD BE SCARED TO TRAVEL ON THE TRAIN AND BUS I JUST REALLY WISH THAT WE FIND OUT THE HORRIBLE PEOPLE THAT HAVE DONE THIS TO LONDON!!
Joanna - Vas is right this is the price England is paying for being behind the US in a sensless war in a country we don't belong. The people that have died are paying the price that GWBush has put on our heads for getting involved with him!
“We shall not be ruled by terror.”
Our hearts go out to the many victims who have suffered so sadly at the hands of evil men. A deep sorrow in these days is felt by all: Christians, Muslims, Jews, and others, all feel this pain. And as Shakespeare said in Hamlet, “When sorrows come, they come not single spies, But in battalions.” It certainly feels as if an army of attacks has hit us
Londoners this week.
When I heard what had happened I felt sick, and was simply left speechless. The world just stopped. Then, frantically, I started phoning friends and colleagues to see if they where ok, it was heart-wrenching to say the least as the news of fatalities increased.
I have felt violated, attacked and outraged that my city, my capital, London, has suffered so dearly. Like many thousands of other Muslims, I too was born and brought up in London; this is my home, always has been and always will be. It is time for us all to stand
tall in these days of confusion, and not let the Terrorist divide us.
From sorrow and grief, it is certain that anger and revenge will grow within many of us. It will be at this time that the proof and testing ground will emerge as to whether the “Terrorist” failed or succeeded in dividing and alienating our diverse multicultural London.
The 'easy road' would be to blame an entire religious group or extremists, so bringing heavier suspicion over minority groups, as we spin further into the terrorists‚ web of deceit.
A friend commented last night, “a mugger or a burglar, or a murder are NOT described by their religious belief but by their wrong actions. So it would seem strange to say a Christian Murderer, or Hindu Burglar committed a crime, it is the action that is condemned".
Wise words, I thought. These atrocious acts are disgraceful and cowardly. Should someone claim that their ideology (be it religious or otherwise) is to commit these crimes, then it is a lost human being with a deluded state of mind who has acted in this evil manner.
The questions have already begun over whether this was retaliation against Western forces in Middle East. We can certainly agree that our foreign policies have not helped in stabilising or reducing the risk of greater attacks. The bigger picture will really need to be digested if we are truly looking for real answers to the turbulent world we live in today.
To be honest, I feel there is no reason to remind people how peaceful Islam and its doctrines are, as I think the majority are well aware of the great historical contribution that it has made to Western civilisation. Only the bigots and extremists within our society will seek to try to capitalise from these sad events. They are known to us all.
We don‚t know who was behind this heinous act, and so we await the results of the investigation. I was quite disappointed with Tony Blair‚s comments linking the whole atrocity to Muslims. As a Prime Minister, I expected a more balanced statement from him; the Police investigators are saying themselves that they don‚t know who did this. It is these kinds of irresponsible comments that only add to the fuel of ignorant people and bigots to take the law into their own hands.
I personally found the comments of Ken Livingstone (London Mayor) and Brian Paddick (DAC) balanced, inspiring and hopeful. Distinguishing Islam from terrorism as two separate entities that are unrelated. May God bless them both for their well-measured thoughts and correct understanding of my religion.
We must be clear that a wrong action is a wrong action, be it committed by a person of faith or of no faith, whether it is the “West” or an “insurgent group”. The discussions around the London bombing should be focused entirely on the criminal acts themselves, and not point fingers at a largely peaceful and well-integrated Muslim community of London and, wider still, the UK.
The hard road will be to trust each other, and to search for the Truth, whatever that may be, and to let the rule of law guide us in bringing to justice the perpetrators of this sickly act. If we di
I visited London July 2004 and had a wonderful visit. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the families & friends whom suffered a great loss. Be strong and may God bless.

Born in Kent and have lived in Canada fifty years. To all of my fellow countrymen, please never forget. There will always be an England. May God bless you all.
Europe in general better wake up. These terrorists hate the free world. We accept those that have different faiths,they hate women,they hate gays,etc., everything that we tolerate. It has nothing to do with political policies, President Bush etc. I wish those that protest loudly about America and the free world would put their energies into the real problem. The "kooks" who hate the free world! This whole problem that we're facing now reminds me of how Europe reacted initially to the Nazi threat. They did nothing (nor did America) and we had to face a real monster.
I have family in the U.K, I just want you to know in America our hearts break for your loss and that fear that we can sadly say we understand. We stand together in hopes of fighting these cowards! You have been our greatest Ally, know that we stand with you!!
i am deep shocked about what happened in london.
it was just a quiet city.
I never thought the bombings would ever be somewhere close to my home .I didnt't think something like this would ever happen here i used to think people who did this had a limit ...obviously not.
Dave - Boston, Massachusetts, USA
My sincere condolences to the vicitims of this horrific tragedy, may you hunt down and punish those who caused this pain.
I am sickened by the deaths of innocent people everywhere in the world- London, Baghdad, who cares which country- we are all human beings with a right to life. I don't understand those who see a moral distinction between 'terrorist' killers and the murder of innocents sanctioned by my own government and that of the US. Many British people did not want their country to go to war with America in Iraq. They were ignored. Tony Blair took us to war but he does not suffer the consequences, he has not lost his family- instead ordinary people from London and around the world were killed last Thursday and leave behind grieving families. It disgusts me. Thank you to all the people around the world who have expressed their support in this awful time. I only ask you not to forget the bereaved mothers, fathers, children and friends of the equally innocent people killed by my government in Iraq.
Susan - America
I am coming to London for the first time in September. These cowards cannot deter me. I dealt with them on 9/11 since I live about 1 hour from NYC. What they don't understand is twofold: 1) that they are hitting innocent people who have nothing to do with their political agenda 2) that we will not give in to their tacts. I would love to throw GWBush their way as one does a bone to a dog but it's not in my power. All I can do is let you (Londoners) know that my prayers are with you and we can empathize with your loss.
Manny - Cape Town
I was in London many years ago and I felt absolutely safe there. I'm shocked over what happened. My thoughts are with the people of the UK, the injured and the families of the deceased. Never give in to this barbaric intimidation.
B T MORADIA Rajkot-India
How horrible those people must be to perpetrate such inhuman acts of cruelty! May we emerge stronger and punish the guilty.
Vas.. You are a compleate **** what do you mean this is the price london paid?! have you any idea what the victim's family's are going through?!
I think the government should deport all who want to hurt us. Preferably to America where they can face execution!
My heart goes out to all those who have lost their lives in such a horrible attack...
I was there in the London tube, i heard a huge bang, a load of screams as the train filled with dark black smoke. Everyone was trying to get out, smashing the windows and knocking the doors down. most of us got out but my friend was killed. I hope those that are missing turn up safe. And i give my heart to those who have lost members of their families.
Deric - Paris
I'm only half English but on 7/7 I felt totally londonner. I lived there for two years and admired the multi culturalism and openmind of its inhabitants. It's a city of true freedom of expression and even if most of us are just passing by there everyone can feel at home. All my thoughts go to all of you and I wish more than anything that you keep your wonderful values without conceding to the fear of terrorism.
I arrived at Euston at 8.20pm this morning. Trying to decide which service to use to get to Holborn, I went in search of a bus, they were there but not moving owing to congestion of traffic (which I understood) went in search of a tube, large crowd outside tube entrance, then I thought I would get a taxi, very long queue. I then rang the office, sat and had a coffee until the crows had dispersed. I then took the northern line to Tottenham court road and got off of the underground(did not take the central line as my asthma was starting to kick off) I then decided to wait for a bus, traffic grid locked......our driver on the number 8 said that the traffic lights were out. Nothing we could do but wait. At least I could go to work..... My point is: as the police etc are trying their best to sort out the effects from last Thursday, wouldn't it have been a good idea to restrict personal cars etc from the hot spots to allow public transport to get people to work. Our driver was very good and kept us informed. BUT, according to the media all public transport was back to normal...... Not quite but I am sure we will get there. (I am walking back to Euston tonight - asthma and all)
it's been a long time coming. in a way it's a relief that it's finally happened, but at the same time, it's still a horrible thing to have happened. my condolences and sympathy go out to anyone who's suffered a loss through these bombings. keep praying, God will prevail.
I was in shock when I heard and saw the terrible scenes -I was in London recently and travelled on the Picadilly Line. British people seem to stick to stick together in crisis and this will have made us stronger and more united. London is a brilliant place and nothing will spoil that ever!
Devastating. My parents were there at the scene. I was so frightend for my parents' lives.
My mate died in the explosion and now his p-arents mourn in despare.
This is price london paid.
But still it works out to be cheaper when compared with 9/11

just wanna let everyone in the city of london know that we the fijian and pacific islanders are praying for your lives. we love you guys. pray hard
I am shocked about this terriable attack,I know very well that how people feel there cause we Turkish people have been living under risk for years because of those terrorists who are playing the devil..I am giving my respect to all British people,PEACE!!!

We need to stop such incidents in the future as the world will not be able to continue when we have people like them
I had sleepless night after hearing the blasts in London. I feel sad for the families who are paining the loss in their family members.
I Hope You get hunted down and strung up.
i am in year 8 and we were going to the tower of london on thursday 7th july for a school trip.
When we reached to tower, we were told that we had to go back to the coach and go back to school. We were getting talked to on the coach, the teacher paused for a second, and we heard a bang, obviously a bomb that had just gone off.
We took four coaches and 2 were back at school and the other 2 were still in london. We couldnt get through to anyone on the other coaches because all of the telephone lines had broken down.
We would all like to give our respect to all of the people that suffered from the terriblre incident
why did the bombs go off in london they shouldnt of done this
Borris Vladivastok, Moscow, Russia
My deepest condolencies to all that were affected in the barbaric Attack.May all the deceased rest in peace and we pray that nothing like this will happen again.

God bless the United Kingdom, we will all unite together xx
Scott -Studio City, California
Never give up, never surrender! We are all Londoners today. Until justice prevails, we are all at risk and all in this together. We stand with you.
This is what we must expect if we go round the world dropping high explosives on others for our own purposes. I pray for the bombed and the bombers in all countries.
Still in a state of shock but also full of anger. My thoughts are with everyone that has been affected by the bombings, to the dead, the injured, the friends and families, and to the emergency services - bless you all.
In LONDON people will GO ON
We have LOTS of COURAGE
I was running late, and would have been on the platform at the time of the Liverpool St. Blast. It's so sick, I hope whoever done it gets what they deserve.

my ant was only a few metres away in her office working when she heared a bang she saw what happened so her boyfreind came and picked her up. they were 2 minutes away from the next bomb
i feel really sorry for the londoners and these terrorists should be put in jail for lfe hope they are caught

My compassion with all the people of England, especially Londonners
Londoners, your courage, resolve and resilience are an example to us all. Despite the bloodshed, I believe cruelty and ignorance will not prevail. And as much as I am sickened by the attacks themselves, I am sickened by comments looking to find a misguided 'rationale' for these attacks and in doing so, apportion blame to the victim. In pointing your finger at US/UK politicians, please do not forget to point your finger at the actual culprits, the perpetrators of these disgusting bombings. They were nothing more than a callous attack on civilians of all nationalities and religions. No justification exists.
Have been living in London for three years. Am on a Working Holiday for a year down under. People here were absolutely shocked when the news came up. My condolences for all those who lost a member of family, friend(s) and/or colleagues.
Roberto and Tiziana from Italy
Our heart is with all Londoners in these terrible days. We are so sorry.
i feel really hurt for what had happened in England. if the attackers were humans they would have thought something humane. they are beasts they should be punished and stoned to death.Every one in India would surely pray for their British friends.
Im 15 years old and I'm very shocked that this tradegy happened in such a great country. I plan to go to London one day. I love the history of England. I have great sympathy for the people that have lost loved ones. I know England will be strong no matter what happens. I will pray to God for your safety and the world's. God Bless You! Long Live England!
I'm from the US but I was in London during the month of March and it was everything I had ever dreamt of, and more. Its history is stunning, the sights are magnificent and the people are so hospitable and warm. I always dreamt of living in London, and my March holiday has given me every reason to make this dream come to fruition. Though I am deeply saddened by the events that have taken place, I know London and its people will NOT be changed for the worse. My admiration goes out to the entire city of London for the impressive way everything was handled. My most sincere condolences go out to those who have lost relatives and/or friends, my prayers to those who are still searching for them.
Bruce Davie, Arizona, USA
You are very strong. This is such a shock but you will overcome it.
Jonathan - Israel
It is devistating to see that our English allies have to taste what we have been going through in these years passed, Israel's prayers are with the people of london.
Another devistating wake up call from the organized world terror. I hope people can now understand why the war against terror is important.
I pray for london tonight and hope they see the light.
I am shocked and astounded at how people can do this to fellow human's. This attack has proven one thing, these terrorists are cowards and must be dealt with in whatever extreme!!!
My prayers & thought's go out to the people who lost loved ones.
To the citizens of London; I am amazed at your strength, stay strong & do not waiver, we shall over come these terrorist's.
I would like to give my greatest condolences
To all the people who have been hurt and to the families of Those who have been killed, as the Mayor of London Stated this was an attack on normal people from different races and religions, we as Muslims are against these people who have done such a
Horrible thing, I hope they are brought to justice and receive the most Severest punishment and to be made an example of, so no one else would dare to do something like this again to our city London.

I was unbelievably lucky. I got off the tube which pulled into Edgware Road Station at 8:47. Now I know that had I taken one tube later, I might not be here now.
Still, I took the tube and bus into work yesterday and I won't give these idiots the power of my thoughts by wasting one more second of my time being afraid of cowards like them.
Anaiis in Burlington, Vermont
I am deeply, deeply saddened by the loss of life and those whose lives are forever changed by the bomb blasts. I love London, it's one of my favorite cities in the world. I've been listening to the BBC coverage -- I listen to BBC radio everyday to keep current on world events -- and I've heard so many comments about carrying on as if all were okay. What I want to say from the bottom of my breaking heart, is it's not okay for millions of people in our world. It's not okay for the Palestinians. It's not okay for the people in Iraq. Their lives, their way of life, their families have been torn about as a result of the slow insidious and also tortuous violence Western developed countries inflict and have been inflicting on other cultures of the world for generations. What I would love to hear from one Londoner, and I know how many of you protested against the war in Iraq -- I would love to hear one of you have the courage to decry these attacks in your beautiful city at the same time you suggest that it isn't possible to go on -- business as usual -- when the global economic empire -- those G8 guys included -- continue to assault the rest of the world with unfathomable cultural violence. Where is the courage to accept the awful truth? We Westerners are directly responsible for these acts of terrorism. Until and unless we are willing to change our ways and our acceptance of the unbridled greed of the Haliburtons of this world, the average working man and woman will not and should not be safe because we are the only ones who have the power to make the madness stop. That's the message of these attacks. Wake up and make the madness stop.Now,
I do not condone violence in any form, but we can't afford to go on as usual.
To do the same thing again and again while expecting a different result is one definition of insanity. We all know that the war in Iraq was launched on lies, misinformation and maniuplated information.
My heart is with every families of those who lost their lives and those who have been irreparably injured, those who helped the dying and wounded and those who must do the awful grueling work of cleaning up the "mess".
Wake up, Londoners. It's time to hit the streets again demanding an end to
all the madness.
My heart goes out to those killed, hurt or affected by this. Their families and friends. We will not be terrorised by this. They are cowards and will never win
the people who are responsible for this.. will suffer i m a muslim but i dont care if they r muslims or watever they will suffer on the day of judgement

My deepest sympathies to all the families and friends that lost loved ones in this terrible act of evil. We in Canada stand with you our brothers and sisters in England..we love you, you are family.
Can I just take a moment to say that we are living in a very dangerous age. For people to kill or injure innocent people in the name of a religion is barbaric, and isn't welcome in this day and age, these people aren't welcome in any society and the only place they are welcome is hell, where they will rot and burn. God bless the United Kingdom

i was living in london, thanks everybody for all the love...
I was in the carriage next to the one that blew up on at Kings Cross. I am physically ok but the tears wont stop, I still feel the smoke choking me. It seemed so long before anyone came to rescue us, but in the carraige everyone seemed calm but the fear on everyones face was evident. The smoke was so thick but the burning smell, blood and injuries was worse. Everymorning I get into the first carriage to Kensington from Wood Green, this morning I jumped into the first available one. I survived probably because I was seated and I quickly removed my jacket to cover my nose and mouth with it. I'm lucky to be alive to see my son again.
maybe it is the time for Britain to reconsider her political strategy, stand away from U.S.A and go into among the people of the world preventing be isolated by the world.
I am a Londoner living in Dallas Texas and the Bombs will never bring the British people down to all the people of London you are a shining example to the World what courage is l am PROUD to be a Londener there is nothing better that you LONDON IS GREATXXX

I went to work on the 259 to Tottenham, like evry day. At Finsbury Park I saw lots of people being evacuated from the Station. Thought there had been a power failure. Same at Seven Sisters. Only when I got to the office I understood what had happened. London has been my home for 10 years and this is the saddest I have felt - my heart is with the victims families. People are coping admirably and with great dignity. I am proud of being a Londoner, (even though not by birth)
Aron Finn Peterborough Ontario
Just wanted to tell you that everyone here in Canada is so sorry about the terror strike on your city. As much as the British have come closer and closer with the USA over the years...Canada is still your sister country and feel for you all...God Bless.
I WAS REALLY SCARED... I WAS ON THAT BUS BUT I WENT OF ONE BUSSTOP BEFORE AND AFTER THE BUS JUST BLOWED UP.
I hope whoever done this rots in hell. I hope they get hunted down and strung up.

So sorry for our English friends
My sister is living in London and I got a sms from her in the morning about some "explosion". I hadn't watched the news yet (here in Finland), so I didn't know anything about it. Later she sent sms telling it was a terrorist attack.
This is touching me more deeply than WTC as it all happened so much closer. Now we all know we're not safe here in Europe. I hope the British soldiers would be pulled out from Iraq, I think this is the main reason for this terrible thing that happened.
Wishing the strength to all those who lost someone dear in the attacks.
Bob in Tennessee USA
Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in London.

THELMA OSEI-TUTU, GHANAIAN
Arise! Arose!! Arisen!!! Londoners.
Never say die until the bones are rotten.
To the Terrorists, I say be quite and don't be silly.
They are the famous Londoners, they never say die. You segmented and targeted the wrong area and the wrong people. Shame to you.
If they(terrorists) kill 1000 people, 1000 people will emerge. (The symbol here is the porcupine, its is also the slogan for Ashantis in Ghana.
Please, accept my heart felt condolence on this occasion. We are solidly behind you, they (terrorist) will fail at all cost.
Once again, I say Londoners, hold the fort. God Bless.
NB: I'm a Ghanaian currently in Japan, Kobe, to be precise. God Bless You All.

Hello, I live in New York City and I feel so terrible about what happened to this wonderful city called London. I cried as this brought back some memories from 9/11. A day before the bombings I was on the net planning my future trip to London. I still plan to visit your wonderful city one day and I know that London will continue to attract many visitors around the world. My heart goes out to the victims and their families and to everyone else over there. I admire your culture and I pray that God keep you safe.

This tragedy has only made me want to be in London worse than I ever desired. I spend my days dreaming of being there, loving the things imported to my senses from the entire of your country.

I am in deep shock and grief after what happened in london, lots of my friends and cousins live there, it was a moment of shame for those who did this, but i salute the spirit of people of London. We stand with you, our prayers and condolenses to the ones who lost their loved ones. God will teach them a lesson who brought such kind of shame to humanity. love and Prayers from your friends in Pakistan.
What's happening with you these days?
these terrorists don't belong to any religion. they think (as they are told) but they are not. Hell is the place they are after and no religion of the world can promise anyone heaven for killing innocent civilians.
But the thought does gets to my mind, that what would have gone through the lives of thousands of civilians (and their families) in Iraq/Afghanistan, who were so called 'casualities of war' by US/UK army majors? Time to think...instead of being angry
chaudhry abdul sattar
i,m in china when i hear this news from bbc i can,t believe it.my thoughts and prayers are with londoners. God beless you;
I'm from Israel, and may be we are the most familiar people with terror, but also, after my trip to England, I learned to love England. Seeing the pictures of such a hit in this great city, I was quite shocked!
I really hope that this great city and great country will rehabilitate as soon as posible, and continue to be such a great country and such a great city.
I love You London, and England!
My greatfull thanks to all emergancy services, my heartfealt sorrow to all who lost loved ones. I found it very distressing to see the reports as they unfold. Lots of people have been very brave (as is the London Spirit!) but we do wish all the injured well and my greatest sympathy to those who are still looking...don't give up hope...and the rest of us, keep your eye's out to stop any more of this madness.
we carnt belive how many lifes have been touched by the truma on the 7/7/2005 so many innocent people have had there lifes taken yet again and we think its about time we brought these murderers to justice and fight for our own and support our world and stop all this bombing acttaks and jelousy our thoughts are with those of family and friends of those who have been lost at this terrible tragedy today
We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in London, we shall fight on the Buses and on the streets, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island and our great City’s, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the Underground, we shall fight on the runways, we shall fight in the planes and on the ferries, we shall never surrender. Whether we are attacked with rockets from planes or bunkers or from grenade launchers, whether you use nerve gases to poison us, or blow up our underground with bags left on them or blow yourselves up with us. Whether in history you have dropped bombs on our airfields and on our cities firing at our soldiers or taking us hostages we will never surrender. We will fight till the end you can never disrupt our way of our life. Even as you try you will never win; as we will get back to normal and survive in denying you what you wish. We will never surrender.
I want the faceless terrorists who did this that london will never surrender to people who need to kill defenseless sevilians.
Although i was not there i fell it is amazing the strength the people who were their, showed in the breakdown of their worlds. And i wish to salute the services that did such an amzing job to keep so many people calm and alive.
Anne, San Francisco
To our mates in London, our thoughts are with you. America stands with you, our most loyal of allies. We cannot ever give in to these scum. I am heartsick.
I've been planning a trip to London for several months. I'll see you Sunday.
P LANDON WRIGHT III SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA
The people of American send their hearts and prays to the great people of London. The British people are a caring and wonderful people who do not deserve such a vicious attack. If you notice you see very little sympathy from any member of the Islam religion. Are they that cowardly as to not speak up against the violence? Islam " the religion of peace" certainly does not really apply!
jorge landin USA
I visited London last year and I really enjoyed your country and especially the people of England, So I am deeply sadden at the events of yesterday.I still remember all the really nice people I met and hope they and their families are all O.K. My heart and prayers go out to all you people of London and as we say here in america " we got your back" These bastards won't win. God speed to all the brave people of London.
Sherry McGregor, Tennessee USA
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this tragic time. They will be found and they will be punished. From what I understand of the Muslim faith, TRUE muslims are as horrified at this slaughter of innocents as we are. These cowards will be caught and receive the punishment they so richly deserve. God Bless and Keep you all!!
Just one to tell you, that no matter what country are we from, we do not acept this barbarian attacks, and the latinos , also share the feeling with our English Brothers...Good bless you.
Craig in NY
As a New Yorker and frequent visitor to London, my heart goes out to the people of London. We understand.
Paula L São Paulo/Brazil
I lived in London for 3 years, and I feel deeply touched by what happened. I always have felt that sooner or later this would happen.
I took a flight from NY on the 9/9/2001, few days before the attack, and luckly I wasnt in London when the attacks happened, because my School (St.Giles College) was in Russel Sq. Its a bit ironic but we all knew it was about to happen anyway, we just didnt know when. I just hope that from now on, The London Undergroung,instead of freaking out about who paid the fare or whos travelling with an expired travelcard, they should start concearning more about the safety.
Yamila from Puerto Rico
Im so sorry for what happened. I can believed. I dont now why people make a living out of this... killing people....My prayers are you the people may God Give the courage to survive and to continue living
As a New Yorker, after our experience with 9/11, I was consoled by a British older lady friend who noticed our sadness and the city's lack of spirit. She said that in England during World WarII, everyone chipped in and did not let the blitz get to them eventhough they were being bombed continuosly. Let the example of that brave generation guide you at this time. Know that you are present in every New Yorker's heart.
I am deeply upset to see the coverage and aftermath of the devastating London blasts. My heart goes out to the victims and families. I am eternally proud of all the emergency services and workers for what they have done for our country in the past 36 hours. You are our heroes and may we be forever grateful. London is in all our prayers. I may not be able to be there, but I am there in spirit!
Jesse Martinez from SA .TX
I'v visited london last year my prayers are with every family touched by this awful tragady. God Save The Queen!
Malika, the Netherlands
I left London one day before the terrible happened, I was shocked when I turned my TV on the next morning, friends started to call me and everybody was so scared. I couldn't realize what had happened. I was travelling from and to Russel Square every day. may god bless you Londoners! Holland stands behind you.
eric owusu boateng
i believe that these people who did these bombs are not part of any relgion as EVERY religion says that killing people is wrong and you will be punished so these ppl have a mental problem in which they love to see people gettin hurt. Also if Mr.Bush and Mr.Blair did not agree to go to war then 9/11 and the terroist attacks in London would not of happen because even know what has happened is extremly wrong and i detest these terroists greatly they want to get their revenge back for us and america going to war and killing innocent people there.
I was on the train when the bomb hit at Kings cross and what I have witnessed was something that I had never dreamt of. This has been my home for 23 years and to watch it crumble before my eyes was heartbreaking. Love going out to all those who perished and thos who survived with me.
It was never a case of "IF" but "WHEN" will it happen!
If it had happened 2 weeks ago i would have lost my sister of 23 and my little nephew of 7 as they were going to Highbury to have a tour of Arsenal footie grounds!
I am really proud of the police and every one because they were ready for it and have managed to save as many people as they possible can and still have!
COME ON YOU ENGLISH DONT LET THIS GET US DOWN. WE CAN GET OVER THIS. WE WILL BE OK! xxx
Debby, Los Angeles
Londoners should feel proud for taking ownership of their beautiful city and for reminding the world of that fact. You share your city with all who come to embrace it yet in its moment of vulnerability, you stand behind it proudly and shine light into its sustaining presence in our world. I've made an annual London holiday for the past 3 years. Your steadfast position just makes me want to visit sooner. Keep London Strong!
Please say a huge thank you to the guys on the River Thames boats. They were marvellous in getting people back home to family and loved ones yesterday
Dan Pugh, Canada
On behalf of Canadians, we will always stand along side our British counterparts. Our thoughts and prayers are with you indefinitely. United we will stand against such acts of inhumanity! I admire the character and tenacity that is and will always be London.
Luke, Forest Hill
What is the best response London can give to those who use terror to elicit
political or social change? As Mr Blair has so rightly said - we must
continue our lives, demonstrating that terrorism will never lead to the changes that terrorists hope to evoke. But let us do more. Let us
celebrate this great city which lived out the blitz, and will shrug this
event off also. In the last week, London hosted the world's biggest ever
concert for a most noble cause. London won the world's most fierce
competition for the Olympics. In the next week, once transport returns to
normal, let all Londoners and other people in the UK and Europe come to the
city - to her parks, her museums, her galleries, her theatres, and her
immortal landmarks. Let the city and her sights be filled with record
numbers of people. Let the world see London more alive and proud and great
than ever before. Let would-be terrorists see they can make no difference.
We need to help!
Seriously..the world has changed! We need to start helping by paying more attention to people around us and watching and reporting what they are doing. Business as usual will not stop these people.
The public needs to keep there eyes open..its our only chance!
hi i was really scared my mate was up in london and no one can get through to her not even now and love leanne i hope the people who done it gets a life time in jail
sam, los angeles california
on the morning of 7/7 the world became a londoner ... we all mourn your loss but stand with you in the face of such eviel to say that goodness always prevails and this will not stand for londoners as we are now all londoners our resolve will not be shaken ... gods speed to you all in this terrible moment ... your friends from america are with you in spirit...
my mum was due to be travelling on the bus that was caught by the bomb. luckly she missed that bus and survived. but the thing that got me stuk, was how much abuse, innocent asian people are getting from the attack. although we may suspect them, doesn't meaen that we can take it into our own hands, let the right people sort the right people out.
i'm 12 yrs out a know how it feels to lose a friend to rasicts abuse, just because we are heart doesn't mean that we can take it out on other people. what sort of example does that set?

Earlier this week I was looking at travel/tourism websites, contemplating a first trip ever to London. I still plan to come! We in New York City love you and admire your strength and resolve.
Keith, New York City
Londoners and all of Great Britain our thoughts and prayers are with you. The United States will stand behind you as you have for us. We must not let terror win...and we WON'T! Stay strong and know that we are with you!
It was the July 7th around 6:30am local time in Mexico, when i woke up and turned on the tv, every thing was caos, i couldn´t believe what i was watching, all chanels talking about the London incident, it was really shoking for me, cause i used to live there for 2 years, inmediatly i started thinking about all people that i met, with all this feelings of worry, anger and impotence, that´s a shame this terrible things still happen specially with all this inocent people who had to pay for others mistakes.Not just me all Mexican people would like to express our deepest solidarity.
Asim Ali ,Lahore Pakistan
Those who are the enemy of humanity dont belong to any religion. Killing innocent peaople should be discouraged in any part of the world..
London is one of the best cities of world its very hostile for all part of the world, we strongly condemn these act of cowardness..
and we wish for the prosperity of London.
I am muslim and I am really grieved at what happened in London.I really am , I have family in London and everyone is so shocked there. I have just read these views and many of you think these are done by Muslims and I think you should not be thinking that way because in Islam the religion for Muslims, It is prohibited to kill innocent people even if a muslim country is at War. So doing something like this is extremely against our preachings of Islam. What worries me more is the fact that we dont even know if these were muslims and everyone has already started to believe it. We dont even have proof that 9/11 was done by Muslims. So please spread Msg of peace not of outrage and hatred for one particular sect.
I am a brazilian student in London but the feeling is I am english too. Nationalities can not make you better or worse, good or bad people. Diferences betwen people can not give a poor thinking for a man.
Terrorism and war never will make diference betwen people but will exterminate the possibility for a better world. The English people dont deserve that, you are with your arms openned for wellcome and not to receive bombs!
I wish better people running for your arms London!
Erick Carrera, Costa Rica
I'm Just one of the four million costaricans that we are sorry for what happened in London.I pray to God for peace in the world. God bless londoners.
There seemed a strong unity and love within the capital this morning as people recommenced their lives. No group of terrorisers shall break Londoner's bond and they will only strengthen our resolve. London will not allow the mentally sick cowards that carried out these attacks to dictate its people.
I don't believe this has just happened. I've been to all of these stations and when I see it on CNN, I was to cry. I remember how much I loved the place and now, everybody is sad. Tragic. God bless Londoners.
Marco (BH / Brasil)
The Brazil loves the london people. STOP Terrorism, STOP die inocent people. They have to take The Brazil like esample; We have many diferent religion in our contry, and no problem with this; We have only one god, e nobody can kill in the name of god.
Brazilian Kiss for all london people.
i think it is very sad and i am sorry for all the freinds and familes of the people that have died
"The Geez" - Columbus, Ohio
Heartfelt thoughts, prayers and love for all who are so innocently caught up in this travesty against humanity.
There is no shame in fear, but let your vigilance for one another help alleviate your fears.
We must ALL put aside our personal differences and stand together against the threats of terror no matter where or when it may try to appear.
We can, ALL TOGETHER, make a difference!
The resolve of Londoners everywhere will not diminish, these cowards will never win...
Just wanted you all to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. I know that the proud people of London will continue their resolve. Condolences to those who have lost loved ones, and God bless you all.
Penny, Titusville, FL
Our thoughts and prayers are with all you brave Londoners. It is a very sad thing, but also show the solidarity of all good people of the world. Good will prevail over evil in the end. God bless London and the world.

Anne- Claire from France
I lived in London 1 year and I came back last week! I was so scared yesterday and scandalised!!! My heart is in London with english people...
Messages from around the world are so touching and I want to say thank you from all of us here in London at such an unnerving time. The global support brings such strength and union to us all in the battle against terrorism. We owe a huge thank you to the selfless people who make up the emergency services (including TFL staff). You did us all proud!
ruben coffey . Bs. As.
I've seen with the deeper horror and indignation what terrorism has caused in London Town. I'd like to express my heartful wishes of sorrow for who have lost their loved ones, no one loss is aceptable, and I feel so proud on the way you deal with it

I am an American living in Europe. I have met only a few Englishman. But the ones I have met have had resolve borne of a truly great culture. You people live in a truly great nation that has been made great by you the people. Remember this in your time of suffering. God Bless you.
I travel through Liverpool Street everyday for work, during rush hour. I feel I have escaped with my life, not only mine but my unborn child. I am very happy being pregnant, but I ask what am I doing bring up a child in a city like this
I was born and raised in London
I'm a 'Londoner' through and through
And you can't crush my love for her
No matter what you do.
You can close her shops and markets
Stop her busses and her trains
You can barricade her roads shut
I will love her just the same.
Your cruel murder and destruction
Leaves me shocked and dismayed
Today is full of thoughts and prayers
But my love will never fade.
I am proud to live in London
And despite your vicious war
There are some things you can't destroy
Today, I love London even more.
Vic, Hammersmith, London
As ever Londoners will pull together - we are a tough bunch and will NEVER be beaten.
However makes me think this is just like another day in Iraq.
Time now to beat the biggest world terrorist - George Bush....
we all hate terrorists...they will the war and their culture......go bush...go blair.....all the way boys
Doreen, South Wales
My thoughts go out to all those who have been martyred on the altar of hate. I pray that they will be given the strenghth to carry on a normal life. These murderers are not people they are a disease and must be eradicated if the world is to live in peace. Congratulations to all the emergency services and those who helped in the aftermath. London has shown the world that it can cope in a crisis. We Brits will never allow ourselves to be cowed.
My deep condolances to the Londoners & hope they recover soon from this menace & fight it bravely. I pray to God for peace in the world. God bless londoners.
I was at Warren Street tube when we were told that the tube won't be stopping at Euston or Kings Cross. So I got off the tube to change lines in Warren street and (when the *WHOLE* London underground was shut down) we were told that due to an emergency we were ask to leave the station. I am angry with London underground announcements. Since then what we did is catch busses. We were lucky we did not have bombs in the buses. We were lucky. But why why why London underground did not tell us to leave the station due to the whole of London underground being closed down due to terrorist attack. If I have heard this I would not have jumped in to a bus. I would have avoided any public transport. London underground announcements are rubbish. Also I wanted to know how many policements were in duty in London yesterday. Did this make us more vulnerable?
Let's send a message of defiance and condolence. What about mass public support by wearing black t-shirts with the message LONDON PROUD and the Olympic Rings. People to wear them on a defined day at work, home etc in mass support?
malera simbeye - Malawi
So sorry for those who have lost their loved ones. May the Good Lord comfort and guide them, Quick recovery to the injured in Jesus mighty name. May those who planned the evil be defeated and disgraced.
i was on the train and it has to be the most scary thing ever in my life

I'm saddend to hear of such of an attack on the grate city of London. My thoughts are with you all on this night.
zorica from Serbia
I hoped that I will never see again such madness after many years of war and destruction on Balkan.
I wanted to let you know that someone here in the Belgrade
has you all in thoughts.
London is my favourite city in the world and I always felt in London like at home. Terrorism will not stop me to came again and visit Russell square and Kings cross.
My heart and thoughts are with you.
stacey glover (London)
07th July is a day we Londoners will never forget. my heart is with the familys that have lost loved ones. I know we all are trying to be strong, but it brings tears to my eyes when i think of the people who have lost their lives because of these cowards.
I get the 94 bus from Sheppards bush to Lancaster gate, every morning. the atmosphere this morning was horrible, every one was looking at each other, all thinking the same thing... are we safe? I pray that the men who are responsible for this evil act are found.
I want to say that world will not be able to continue when we have people like them - stop now before is too late
I cannot sleep after London was attacked. I feel very, very sad to those who loss their family members.
Josephine Lee, Hong Kong
I condemn those barbaric acts by terrorists to attack London or any other part of the world. Are they human being? Do they have family and friends? Can they sleep well with the soul of victims haunting around them?
I am so sorry to hear this bad news. All my thoughts are with my home country.
we are with all of you in this time.
I saw the bus incident and the roof of the bus was thrown 3 metres into the air in the explosion. It sounded like a huge thud. People were caterpaulted out, and the on-lookers just stood in stunned silence before rushing to help. Some injuries were horrific, I just feel so sorry for all those involved in the injuries from this incident and may it never happen again, especially just after our good news on the Olympics.
Marianne Larsson, Sweden
Brave, beatiful and wonderful London! No evil cowards can defeat you.
All civilized people will unite against those evil barbarians.
We feel with you in your pain and sorrow and we will help you in every way we can.
Our thoughts are with you. We will never forget.
I don't know how to comfort the families of those who lost their lives in the blasts in London.All the people in my country will pray for the victims.
Don & Bobbi Falconer
As Americans watching the coverage of the bombings and watching the news online, we feel greatly saddened about the attacks we have witnessed today to our brothers and sisters in London. Our prayers go out to all of the people of London. We support you and will resolve to be strong as you have all been for us during our time of need.
I am an Englishman living in the USA, I feel so proud of my countrymen, and women, for the way they have delt with the atrocities that went on today. On my way home I saw many, many British flags flying as an act of solidaritry for everyone back home, my thoughts and prayers are with everyone that have suffered through this latest assault on my homeland. Keep the upper lip stiff.
I just wanted to express my families heartfelt condolences and prayers to you all in London from the United States. My heart goes out to those who lost loved ones and to the injured. Please know we are thinking of you all and praying that these idiots will be caught. We must all stay strong and not let them get the best of us. An attack on your country is again an attack on ours, because you are our friends. May God be with you and help you through this time.
A friend in California,
I'm from London and live in Tokyo. I just wanted to pass my deep sympathy to all those families of the victims in todays terrible attacks. I have been watching the scenes on BBC Asia and am so impressed by the emergency services and the calm collected reaction of the public. I'll be there in two weeks time and I WILL be going about my business as usual in the worlds greatest city. I'm sure this will pull Londoners and all British people together.
I feel sorry for the people that have family killed in the London bomb attacks.
I found you online, so hope this is a good place to send my condolences to everyone in England re the bombing in your transit system. I feel so very sad for all those involved and wanted to let you know that someone here in the United States has you all in our prayers (me, my family and friends). We pray to God that somehow these terrorists can be stopped. God Bless you and Be with you all.
Donna - West London
I would like to see how Ken Livingston handles this in the coming weeks and going forward. He's forced everyone onto public transport with congestion charging etc. and look at the result-he's simply made us more vulnerable targets. This is what we get for backing him and using public transportation.... thanks
My heartfelt condolences to all of you! I am an American who loves your country and all your wonderful, warm people! My prayers and love to you all!
Greg Hicks USA
I'm so sorry what has happened in your beautiful city. I've always been very interested in England and with London especially. My heart and that of all in the United States, goes out to you. We love you all!!
I was gobsmacked at the castosraphy casued I wish i could come and help save lives with all the help from people we can save lives
Hello people I'm from Argentina and today when I woke up I saw knew about the attacks. I just want to say that I, as many poeple in the world, condemn those terribles attacks. I think that innocent people are being killed so powerful people should be really concerned about that.
Stop the War and England can live in pease.
I fill sorry to the people that have family killed in london boms attacked
My thoughts, heart and soul goes out to everyone who unfortnately where victims, and lost their precious lives through such an evil act of terroism.
I feel so much for family and friends and everyone currently in London, and around the world who have had to witness these cowardly acts on inoccent lives, because they don't value their own lives enough.
London is the only city in the World, that accepts everyone from any nationality, culture and background, they have opened their doors to Millions from around the world.
London is a place were dreams can come true, and people do become someone.
London will remain the best city in the World, and having the support of everyone from around the world, I pray that the whole world pulls together to Stop Terrorism, so that we can work as one to bring the world back in to normanity.
Next time we gather on a world scale, we need to gather to remember their loved ones we have lost from Terrorism acts, along with ensure to the world we will not lose the war on Terrorism.
god save world

Im currently in Belarus getting Married but all my thoughts are with my home city London, I return this weekend and have never felt so far away as i do now. This is a evil act but we are a strong nation we must not back down to them.
Deepest sympathy to all who have lost loved ones. You will also rise above this terrible event just as you did 60 years ago. London and its people will endure
People in Australia were devastated at the news yesterday.

lois, new york
our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult and frightening time.
I lived in London last year (on a street off of Russell Square) and am heartbroken at the cruelty shown to this beautiful city. America is praying for you and stands by you. You are not alone! Here is a passage that I read on the night of 9/11: "The wicked plot against the righteous and gnash their teeth at them; but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for He knows their day is coming." Psalm 37:12-13

chin up london, they will reap what they sow ....
Karen Wellen, New York City
I am so heartsick and sorry for my beautiful London. I live a mile from what was the World Trade Center and watched the towers collapse. All I can say is that it's hard to imagine that life will ever get back to "normal". It does. Just a different normal. Stay safe.
Every action has a consequence, it's time for all of us to act smarter, our prayers to the families in London.
its the saddest thing.People who call themselves "Muslims" and do these kind of filthy jobs are not "muslims" at all.It is written in Holy Quran that killing of one inncocent person is killing of humanity.my deep condolences to people of London
Zul Majdi - Malaysia
It is the time now for us to fight against massive terrorism like this!
We are so sorry. We love you. - Atlanta, Georgia, USA
I have found out over the internet about the horrible thing happened to the people of London. Please accept my deepest sympathies and condolences to the families of people who died and got injured on those trains and busses. I myself cannot even imagine how it must hurt to say to a beloved one good by in the morning on the way to work and then later find out that something like that happened to the person I love. I do not hate anybody, but I truly strat to hate terrorism and anybody who has anything to do with it. I think the whole world should put stop to this once and forever, no matter what the cost of doing so is.
I am a Muslim and I was born in this country and I am so upset to see that we UK public have to go in to work and home. I am also upset to see on TV that over 30 of them have died and I am happy to see that the Police and the Ambulance members have got to the scene first.
I am proud to say that I am a Londoner and will always walk with my head up high.
If these fanatics think that I am going to cow and give in to these very sad and sadistic people, then they will have to think again. No way will I ever give up my freedom for them.
Woe betide them if I ever catch one of them. There death will not come so quickly with me. I will make sure that they have to endure constant pain and torture for the rest of their live's.
My thoughts and prayer'r go out to all the victims and families of this cowardly act, and also to the transport staff who carry us around our great city in the face of adversity from the unknown.
Diane H., Tucson, Arizona
Our prayers are with you. Those of us who have been touched by terrorism know that the best defense against it is our resolve to stick together and to remain strong and positive in our resolve. WE ARE WITH YOU!
i work in a busy secondary school. People do not realise the impact that things like this have on community relations within a school that need extremely careful handling.
I am deeply concerned about London and about us all. As plenty of others I visit London as often as I can and I do not let anybody deprive me of the joy of being in London and travelling the tube. Terrorism is surely no way of solving problems, it creates new and terrible ones, it is the source of hatred and mistrust.
Dirk Van Der Walt, South Africa
Stand together !
Never ever give up!
Jerry - Los Angeles
As you stood with us on 9/11 we stand with you now and always. I'm so very sorry you had to go through this but in the end we will prevail over the extremist. Heart felt sorrow to all that lost their lives.
what a day waking up with these news. Few moments after the shock I remembered I hava a very dear friend in London. I called her and I got her on the mobile phone , one of the lucky ones which made a different descision and went another way. My dear friend had seen some of the shocked people and was on the way to find her way home to the other side of the city. I pray for those who are in shock and which have left us on this sad day. May the Divine protect us and may there be Peace. My thoughts are in London ..

London is a city with 2,000 years' experience of enduring plights and cowardly attacks. And Londoners are the best people in the world. My heart, hopes and thoughts are with you. Always. x
Danielle - KS USA
This is a terrible day, my hearts and prayers to the families and friends that lost someone. This will be hard for a while but with this we will band together and survive this event. I hope and pray for a certain someone over there, that i am thinking of you and hope you are alright, miss you
What a horrible world we live in. We should bring to justice the people who did this, but also hold accountable the ones who put us in a position where they knew this would happen to us eventually, aka Blair and Bush.
Mo from Harlow
I am appalled at the events of today. The biggest and scariest terrorist of all is George W. Bush. Speak to anyone from here to the continent, and they will tell you the same. It is time that he put his hands up and admitted that he has made the most enormous mistake that anyone in power could make, that is, to cause heartache and destruction to the civilised world through his own screwed up thoughts. Tony Blair must surely see that the majority of good British people cannot be wrong. Open your eyes, see what we all can see. DO SOMETHING POSITIVE.
Fernanda Fort, Argentina
Please stop war! please stop terrorist attacks! we are all in a same world. Why the war between human beings? we are brothers! Peace
Guillermo Sarmiento,Valencia, Venezuela
I and my family are very shocked and sorry about such a criminal and treacherous attack. We think it is unforgivable and that God, whatever His name is: Elohim, Alah,
Buda, or else, can approve these crimes.
No ideology, cause, or doctrine can be sustained on murders and terror. History has confirmed that. We express our condolences to Londoners.

Our prayers for all the terrorist attack victims. Some day, they'll realize that it's impossible to break the worlds unification
Hazel- Costa Rica
My thoughts and prayers to the people of England. May God bless you all and keep you. England is a strong nation and in time will heal. The whole world is with you.
It was so intensely horrendous to be sitting in school, being told that there has been an explosion in London - 24 hours after I was there.
It was so scary to hear the death toll rise dramatically from 2 people in the beginning to more than 30 dead and over 700 injured.
It's sickening to think that whoever did it could bring so much distraught and destruction to London, and other people over the UK. Sickening.
Danielle Lawson, New York, US
As a living witness of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York, my sympathies go out to all the residents of London. I visited London on six weeks ago, and must say this is one beautiful country. My God be with you.
love and prayers to all affected by the terroristic acts to your city. we feel your pain and do sympathize with you all
I was saddend by the tagic circumstances of this morning. But as a Londoner born and bred my heart filled with pride when I saw how we coped. We pulled together and sent a message to those terrorists that they will never break our will or resolve to carry on our lives as normal. Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts
PLEASE POST THE MAYOR'S SPEACH FROM SINGAPORE IN FULL. IT IS THE BEST AND MOST PASSIONATE SPEACH BY ANY POLITICIAN AND I WAS REDUCED TO TEARS WHEN I HEARD HIM.
A Poem For London
It’s sad to see so many lives lost,
They made their point but at what cost?
It’s sad to see a crying child,
At a funeral, single-filed,
With solemn candles sadly lit,
It’s sad to feel the shockwaves hit,
Of attacks so barbaric, it’s very true,
It reached the hearts of me and you,
For many people friends have gone,
And from their graves their names have shone,
As names of heroes, one and all,
Innocent, who stood up tall,
And as they lie there broken, alone,
Never the chance, to one condone
The terrorists who broke the silence,
Of a country free from such violence,
Now join together, sway along,
To this sad and mournful song,
For the terror these people provided,
Proved the British are never divided,
We can stand up we can sing,
For such a terrible, terrible thing,
It’s sad to see a child die,
But her innocent spirit to heaven shall fly,
And when she gets there she will tell,
Of London’s blasted living hell,
So now that heaven is on our side,
Britain shall never, ever divide,
And we shall stand proud,
And we shall shout loud,
And we shall unite,
And we shall all fight,
With not weapons but words,
Which spread like wings of birds,
As they can inspire,
They warm souls like fire,
Set hearts ablaze,
And always amaze,
For Britain may be bruised,
And we have been abused,
But we are not out yet,
And on that you can bet,
For we are a country so strong of links,
That no terrorist can ever think,
That they will succeed in getting through,
They’ve only scratched the surface.
By Fiona Thornton, 14

To the people of London,
what has happened today is unthinkable and cowardly. What these animals have done is evil. It saddens all of us; our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Jeffrey Duly, Nashville
I have been listening to your coverage at the office all day and I
must commend you for your work.
I was in the UK on September 11, 2001 and in the weeks afterward.
During that time I experienced the outpouring of concern and
condolences of the British people and it touched me. I feel it
necessary to express that same concern and condolences back to the
people of Britain and specifically London in the wake of this
brutal attack. Throughout your history you have certainly survived
worse crises. With your resolve you will get through this as well.
Brian Moore, Pennsylvania
My sympathies go out today to the residents of London, my favorite city in the world, from an American who visits your great city as often as possible.
Our prayers for all the terrorist attack victims. Some day, they'll realize that it's impossible to break the worlds unification
I am here in Portland, Oregon listening to your station online. You are doing a great job keeping us informed.
I am a tube driver on the Piccadilly line, i was 3 trains behind the train which had the explosion the driver of which being a personal friend of mine who i have since spoken to and I would just like to take this opportunity to thank my collegues of London Underground for the proffesionalism and dedication shown during and after the terrible events of this morning and special praise goes out to all staff for the swift evacuation of trains, especially ones stuck in tunnels, all trains and stations being evacuated within 15 mins of the blast between Kings Cross and Russell Square, i have only contempt for the animals who could do such a thing to so many innocent people going about their daily buisness.
I'm not sure if this is the best place to write this, however, I feel compelled to express how deeply sorry I am for the attacks suffered today. My heart goes out to all. Please know that all in America feel and understand your heartbreak. My hope is that the world's prayers and thoughts will touch you all.
To the people of London and Great Britain:
My condolences and prayers for healing and safety go out to you. We in America grieve with you and we hold you in our hearts. May God be with you all.
This morming I was on my way to work in the piccadilly line when i heard a big explotion between King`s Cross and Russel Square,all carriege was full of smog and after twenty we desided to break the windows and get out;so we walked back to King Cross station.fortunally i`m fine and i thank god for that.i`m sorry from the bottom of my heart for all the people who didn`t make it.
God bless everyone and help, those who loses friends and relations,Brasil stands with you London.
Major Leonard Challis
God save the Queen and bless all the people in London today. America will be there for you. We love you.
Just to let you know - I've been living out of London for 20 years now,
here in Córdoba in the centre of Argentina, but I'm keeping you company
listening to you through the Internet this evening while I work.
Delighted to hear the traditional London spirit being maintained despite
however badly the city is hit.
I phoned my family and heard they are all well, so I am relieved
personally, but I send my deepest sympathy to all those affected.
We are with you even from so far away!
tim, backpacker Brazil
Tony Blair sided with Bush and set my home up for retaliation. Osama Bin Laden goes to London and tries to kill my Mum. We knew this would happen, feel sick.
Their will to destroy may be big, but our will to survive is bigger. We will not live in terror. We are london helding high our faces....
Nan and Mihir
Another heart of a great city of the world has been pierced and made to bleed. This is not a time for revenge or war, it is a time to realise what the world needs most right now- peace. All our love and prayers to London.
Any justification for the use of terror as a 'weapon' is ludicrous. If a bully terrorizes a schoolyard, the teachers will find the cuplrit and expell them. The bully must quit hiding behind the rather convenient guise of oppression and realize that fundamentally they only harm their own cause and justify the steps and actions taken to deal with them. Deep down they are obvious cowards and even in a suicide-bomber scenario they only seek to avoid the consequences of their actions. Our hearts are with London on this day. Keep a stiff upper lip. Rest assured that this day shall not be forgotten.
i´m so sorry for you dear english friends...do not let then win...fight for your children and future generations...fight with all your heart and love...
david sparks - london
pray for those who have died,pray for their families.pray for those who are still seriously injured and those that were there and may never get over the shock..... london is the greatest place on this earth to be
I was so shocked when I heard what happened this morning.
England will grow stronger.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the people of London and to those families who have lost a loved one on this horrific day...
Ana - Valencia
Una vez mas, despues de lo ocurrido en USA y Madrid, tenemos que volver a sufrir un golpe de este tipo.. NUNCA MAS!! La gente no se merece esto..
common people and especially people of arabic origin should do much more if this mindless blodshed is to be stopped. Goverments will never be able to do what only grassroots movements can.
We love you London.
Cynthia C. - Tampa, FL
America grieves with you, London. The greatest catalyst to strengthen camaraderie and resolve is Tragedy…we know this more than anyone. May God bless each of you and may you feel the warmth and support of the many nations who stand beside you and the grace that God brings even in the darkest times.
I was born in London and although I now live in America I love the city and its people. God bless all of you. I'm so proud of London, today and always! America stands with you.
Darrel - Canada
We all feel horrible for those so drastically affected. But know this: equally barbaric retaliations will not work! Surely our accumulated wisdom will drive us to strike - at the root causes of strife in our world rather. Make Poverty History! Support the UN's Millennium Goals! THESE CANNOT BE MERELY SLOGANS.
Lisa, Cape Coral, FL
Our thoughts and prayers are with you, London. As we await another possibly devastating hurricane, we were reminded once again of 9/11. These animals must be STOPPED. We will never surrender to their tactics. Godspeed to the U.K.
Rosemary f/Dallas TX USA
Our condolences to you all. You're in our hearts and prayers London.
My prayers are with you all. May this tragedy be used to effect positive change in the lives of all involved.
My haert is with all those that died, were injured,have lost, and also those who were unfortunate enough to have witnessed the atrocities. This is yet another tragedy in a world overrun with hate.
How ironic to be celebrating the 60th anniversery of VE/VJ day this week, and these cowards try to make us conform to their will. Britain will never conform to terrorists. We are a strong, determined nation and terrorists will not be allowed to prevail, be in here or anywhere in the world. God bless us all, my thoughts and prayers are with the victims and relatives of todays awful tradegy.
Kathleen - New Hampshire
Yesterday I was pleased to hear that London won the 2012 Olympics and to see the delight of the people of England. Today I am truly saddened and distraugt to hear of the tragedy that has happened in London. My prayers are with the dead and injured and all the victims of these dastardly deeds
It's incredible such a mentality by these days...with all the amazing investigation and development to finish with Diseases...there are lots of excellent and warm-hearted people helping to those who suffer because of poverty, sadness and hunger. Why not to take good action and spend time in those things which make our soul to be 'cleaner' every day?
We are all praying for you brothers!!
Laura, South Shields, England
Our thoughts and prayers are with those who were killed or injured and their families by this horrific incident. Those responsible will be caught.
I still cannot believe what has happened. At present I am still at work as I am too scared to use the limited public transport.Luckily I'm getting a lift home. I feel blessed that I can do this as I am aware that others were not so lucky. I would like to praise all those who have participated in the rescue process and those who were unsung hero's.
I would also like to express as a non- muslim my fears for the Muslim community at this time as I know that there were racist reprisals after 9/11 in which a number of my friends experienced. I would like to emphasise that our vibrant and diverse community should continue to strive against and challange xenophobics who I fear will use todays atrocities to justify their attitudes towards our fellow counterparts.Please do not let this happen as it will just let the terrorist win.
i hope everything is alleight
Toby O'Brien (Norwich, UK)
Do they expect to gain something from this. London was my birth place, I think these people are just sad cowards who have no life and only enjoy it when they bring misery apon others. I hope that the A Bomb gets dropped on them, that way life will go on! Peace. out.
we all are London today, the same way the rest of the world was Spain last year
amanda diaz ,from argentina

Stand strong London we survived the IRA in the 70s and 80s and will come out a stronger more uniyed community from this cowardly outrage
Patsy - London
I was not in london when the chaos happened but I'm now back in the capital. These terrorists are downright cowards. Why not sacrifice just themselves or show their faces and accept the punishment if they feel what they are doing is so just. Totally sickens me!
I'm 12 and I just got back from the UK and Ireland not even two weeks ago. I was there on a trip with a group called People To People. What has happened today has affected me in so many ways, as it has others. I feel for anyone who has lost someone, and I am still waiting to hear from my friends (who have become family to me) who live in England, and I just hope that they and everyone they know is alright. I love the UK very much, and what has happened today is not what I wish to see in the world. I'm very upset that we have to live in a world that thinks fighting, and attacking, (ect.ect.) are the answers. I'm very sorry to the people that have lost anyone today, and just know that my thoughts rest on you today. Much love to everyone in the UK and throughout the world. xoxo <33
Charlotte - London
I am sitting waiting for my husband to come home, he is safe thank God, he was 10 min late for work it saved his life. My heart goes to all those families who's loved ones wont be coming back...God be with you.
Major tradgy has occoured today. To never have thought, such could happen. Deepest condolances towards the victims, who lay at rest, also to the families of these people, who have lost some victorious people, to the country, which has been left standing at hault and to the people of this country, who will suffer in silence.

I was not in London, but I am horrified to be hearing of these attacks and to see that people continue to kill eachother because of hate and revenge...there is to much hate in the world. My heart goes out to everyone in London.
ALL thoughts and prayers are with the people of London!We are all with deep sadness.
corrine boyling - basildon, essex
i was at school in p.e at the time and all the sudden a girl came in and she was crying. We asked what was wrong and she said that there has been bommings in london and her family are all there. Every one was really shocked and some people were really scared including me, everyone was quiet and unhappy all day, someone i know lost her baby and my freinds concert was cancelled.i just hope it has all stoped and the terrorists are all suffering!!!!!! i feel for every one who has lost someone or if someone they know is hurt, but like sandra-germany said 'you are never alone'
Carrie, Houston Texas

Tony / USA California
We need to strike back with greatness, it's a Jungle "this World". Do not be passive, these people do not understand passive, show them that we can STRIKE BACK WITH GREAT VENGENCE and make them beg to sign a surrender. We will not live in terror. God Bless
Warm and sincere wishes for a brave and fast recovery. I was in London two weeks ago and loved every minute of my visit. And I'd do it again. Cowardly terrorists can't be allowed to win. Stand strong Great Britain. America stands with you.

Dario - Peru
Absolutely petrified about the hate, my condolences to the england people, god bless you.
David Roche ,London
My deepest sympathies go out to the families of those murdered today. To the injured I wish a speedy and full recovery. To the perpetrators I say this " we were expecting you, run as fast as you can because people are coming after you!" To London I'd like to say, carry on tomorrow as normal and dont alter your life one iota, for to do so would be to give ground to murderers. Making poverty history is still on the agenda!!!!!!!!
I am from london, but live in new York. I ahve seen two of these attacks and please someone stop them...my thoughts and prays to everyone who has sufferedm, God Bless.
Enough is enough !! My thoughts are with you London xx
From all of us in the USA - our hearts are so sad and you have our thoughts and prayers, London!
my heart goes out to all those who have died or have been injured in this catastrophe i hope that however caused all this heartbreaking terriosts attacks will pay for what they have done god bless you all xx
Why did they do this? Just to cause mayhem or was it to slaughter?
My sympathy goes to everyone concerned.
our thoughts and prayers are with all in london...
thinking of you all in nyc
Sandra - Germany
I was so shocked when I heard what happened this morning. I was in London only 2 month ago, and it's such a lovely city. I pray for all who are injured and for all those who still don't know what happened to their beloved ones. never forget, you are not alone.
My colleagues an I are still shocked and sad about the tragic events this morning. This is to express our deep sympathy to the people of London.
I give all my condolences to all familys who have lost someone close to them today. Justice will be done
So sorry for our English Friends, Im a Mexican in Madrid, as son as we heard the notice we'd haven't to leave to pray for you.
I heard about this dreadful thing just as I arrived at work in Uxbridge this morning, spent the day with the radio on and looking at the dreadful pictures on the web with two co workers. How the families of the people killed feel is my main concern as I know too well with a lovely daughter killed in a road accident. Nothing can explain the horror for the families, the loss, so un-neccessary, the fact that their lives are so unreasonably taken. My sympathy to all people whose lives will never, ever be the same.
Condolences to the dead and injured. I am surprised it didn't happen sooner. Blair should not be surprised - this is a minor disaster compared to what happens on a daily basis in Iraq. Shame on our government for what they have done to make the world a more dangerous place.
I live in the U.S. but my boyfriend lives in London. My heart is with all of London and I'm praying everything will be alright.
Today has been a hard day for everyone to see our capital in such a bad state! i feel for all the people that have been injured during this terrible thing and my heart goes out to you all that has lost family or friends! im sure i will be talking for everyone when i say we are all here to help and stop what these sick people are doin to our countrys!! XxX God bless you all!
to everyone in London, and everyone affected by what has happened this morning, I wish to extend my sympathies to all - my thoughts are with you all. Eamonn in Templeogue, South Dublin, Ireland
i live in manchester, but my sister lives in London. i give my condolences to all that have lost their lives,god bless
SFC Andrew T. U.S. Army, USA
Know that when the smoke clears and these types of horrific events are printed in the pages of history, the men & women in the Armed Forces of the United States and those of Great Britain will have portrayed a bastion of unity, strength and solidarity. My prayers and thoughts are with all of you. God Bless Great Britain!
England needs God to intervene, for the weapon of our warfare are not carnal, but they are mighty through God. This fight is not a physical one. it is spiritual. We must pray for England
im 14 and i hate that im growing up in a world full of hate!!!!! my thoughts are with all that have died today x
Steve Hogan Singapore
Incidentally, Tavistock Sq. next to where the bus was bombed is dedicated to peace
and has a bust of Ghandi in it.I used to work near there.
Prayers and thoughts with you all in London
i was outside kings cross station when the bomb went off and i was petrfied i was meeting my mum i was afraid she was in it and i hope who ever did this gets caught
its shocking my sympathy goes out to every single one of u
In all of this, remember what the leaders of our country have done to oppress and allow the murder of innocents abroad....I feel for those dead and their families but i feel for those all around the world who lose life and live in terror.
Frans Voogt (France)
really terrible what happened ! How can people be so bad ??
My thoughts are with the Londoners!
my tutor arrived in london 5 minuted after the blast occured, and evacuated from kings cross straight away, i feel terrible even though she is fine, my thoughts go to the freinds and familys of people who havent been as lucky as my tutor.
i feel for the families of the people who are injured and killed something needs to be done about the people who carried out these attacks and praise to the people who handled themselves so well in all this chaos from a well wisher in south wales so far but so near wishing you all the best and hope never to hear that this happens to anyone else .
I live in madrid but england has been my home for 6 years, i know what you guys are feeling and words can not describe how angry i feel with this monsters of death and distruction.
200 inocent people died in madrid, more than a 1000 injured and no ones has paid for that yet, is this a fair world???
I used to live in London and now live in the USA. I feel extremely sad for all the people involved, and for all of us in this world fighting to make it a better place. We must not lose our determination and resolve, together we can change things for the better, but we must all be united as one. I am extremely proud to be British and wish I was home today.
This is a terrible day. But in Iraq everyday is a terrible day.
It is really a terrible day. I planned to go to my aunt's place in the morning but in the last moment, I cacelled my program. Thank God. My feelings and prayers are for all the people who suffered in this shocking incident. God bless them.
My heart goes out to all of Britain our great friend.
From the States

Paul from Baltimore. USA
My wife and I were there in London a few months ago and treasure the memories. Our thoughts and prayors are with our London "Family". In the words of a great British leader, "We shall never surrender" Ring a bell?
Dear Friends, I just wanted to send this note and let you know you are in my thoughts and prayers. It brought back such bad memories of our own terrorist attack on 9/11. Please know that millions of Americans are praying for you and will help you in any way we can. May God Bless you during this terrible day. Sincerely, Lisa Beasley, Birmingham Alabama USA
I hope everyone in England knows the American people pray the safety of England’s citizens and for those hurt in this recent vicious attack. We will continue to stand strong along side of England in the fight to rid our world of these cowardly assassins who attack innocent men, women, and children. I personally will continue to back our countries leaders in our valiant fight for peace.
Don Johnson, Jr
An open letter to our brothers and sisters;
You are our family. We grieve with you today.
We will never forget your love and prayers for us in the aftermath of 9/11; How incredibly honored we felt hearing our National Anthem played at Buckingham Palace.
We want to send our love on this day of great loss; you are in our prayers. Our hearts go out to you today.
Arm in Arm,
The attack on London has been a shock to most people while i was on lunch people where laughing and smiling like nothing had happened which was upsetting like some people didnt care. lots of people have been injured and a few have been killed. i heard the explotion and the police sirens. there will be a contrast in the news this week today london the news was about us getting the olympics and tomorrow there will be news of this terrible attack on lifes of londoners
Thanks for keeping me in touch with what's happening back in my hometown. Your voices are a great comfort, believe me. God bless.
I was at school at the time (i am only 12) and everyone was crying and calling people on their phones. It was such a coinsidense once i had heard the story of their families after lunch. One of my friens aunties had been ten minuites late for the blasted bus, my other friends dad had got off at the wrong train stop, ten seconds later a blast happened. I am not normally religeous but, Dear God please help us at this time my heart goes out to all those injured and all those who have lost ones. Dear Lord please don't let there be another war. I am to scared. Surely these blasts should make us stronger, make us win. I love everyone upset today. This is a SAD SAD SAD SAD SAD SAD SAD SAD SAD SAD SAD SAD SAD SAD SAD SAD SAD SAD day.
Despite being on a smaller scale, i can now identify with the fear and confusion that New Yorkers felt after 9/11. To see this happen to your city hits you hard.My heart goes out to all injured and families of the 33 people pronounced dead.
Peter Fosco Philadelphia, USA.
On behalf of my family and friends, I wish to convey our deepest sympathy to the wonderful people of London and the U.K. I feel as though our cities have a unique humanitarian bond as partners for Live Aid and Live 8. We were all very sad and angry to hear the news, but we know that your legendary perseverance will help you out of this difficult time. Take care.
Many of us here in America are listening to London 94.9 at the moment.
Thank you so much for your service to the world community. What has
happened in London is beyond words, but we pray and hope for you all. The
attack is all over the news; the moment I awoke (around 1200 GMT), public
radio alerted our family to the attacks.
May peace be with you all tonight
I am listening to your station on the internet, anxious to hear of any developments on today's situation. I am so sorry that this has happened to London. As I continue to listen those same feelings of illness I had on 9/11 grow in the pit of my stomach. It is such a shame that someone feels the need to commit these acts of violence. It proves nothing except that they can do this and in the end they only impress each other. I only wish that the true people of Islam would stand up and unite against these extremists and forbid them to use their god to cause senseless death and destruction.
Our thoughts and prayers and support are certainly with you all today.
I used to live in London, and hope to again. It will always be a beutiful city...no matter what. I know the people of Britain and I know they will endure and overcome. My condolences on your loss.
This was bound to happen inspite of the Iraq war. Utmost respect for the Emergency Services and deepest condolences to those families of the 33 people who've lost their lives.
Lisa (Londoner living in the US)
My thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims and their families. You shall overcome! We are a strong Nation.
Very sorry: hope that all this madness (from all sides) stop soon.
No more death.
Eline from Holland
This is absolutely shocking, I simply don't understand how people can be willing to hurt eachother this bad. I just can't stop thinking of the fear and grieve it must have brought to all those people involved, to their families and friends as well. I'm still waiting to receive good news from friends who live in London, and although I don't want to, I feel scared thinking of something like this happening in Amsterdam or so in the mean time. It's very selfish to think of your own relatives and situation immediately, I know, but one can't help I guess.. That's why I also want to let you people know how much this affected me and many other people here in Holland, and how much we want to support you in dealing with this horrible attacks. Take care.
I dont know what they want to prove in this world. Everywhere they are trying to spread their evil. They will never succeed. I ask people to stand against these ill minded people and distroy them forever so that they would never ever be able to kill innocents.
My Thoughts are with the people who lost their lifes today. x
This is a very sad day that has brought much anger to me.
I hope that for just one day these people that have done this disgusting act will suffer as much as the people of london
My deepest condolances to the families, who lost their life. The Govt. should handle terrorists with iron-hand and have control on immigrants.
Adrian Collins - Ireland
Paryers will be said for all thoose who were killed. I will be thinking of all thoose who were affected.
Cowards is the only word I can use to describe thoose who did it.
My thoughts and prayers go out to you. You never understand the horror and fear untill someone comes on your soil and takes over like that. We know your pain and know you will prevail like we have.

As a survivor of 9/11 my heart goes out to all of you in London. These terrorists are obviosly cowards. They do not fight our military they just kill innocent people. They should come out in the open not sneak around bombing people that cannot defend themselves. The terrorists are evil, vicious and hateful people that use a religion as an excuse for killing!
London - be vigilent and strong!
I cant belive what i am seeing, this is so worthless, human lifes put at risk for what??? My heart and thought goes out to you london, Take care. x
I am so sorry for all directly affected by this horrible attack. My deepest sympathies to the family of those who were killed or injured. And I am most sorry that Bush's war on terror has escaped the boundaries of Iraq.
They are not going to win. My sympathy goes out to you all.
Words cannot express how deflated and in shock most of the world must be. There is never any reason to take a life in such a barbaric mannor. Thoughts and prayers are with all the families invloved. Also great respect and pride with all emergency services involved.

Our prayers are with you, be strong the lord is watching over you.
stop the killin and we all prai 4 them por peeple.
This shouldnt happen in a world. People are insane. What is the world comeing to?
I don't think anyone, anwhere should have to walk around their hometowns or cities where they have grown up, or watched children grow up in, in fear of their own death. What purpose does all of this terror pursue except fear, and all fear will create is anger.
It's all going in circles.
My deepest sympathies to those wounded, and to the families of the deceased.
my friend lives in london i rang her straight away to make sure she was safe, thank god she was, but my hearts go out to all those not so lucky. :-(

I am in London rightnow, and I saw the scenes which i never forget.... i think its too much.... basically I m from Karachi, Pakistan. I never saw thIs type of blastS even in Karachi.... I think London win the olympic bid & it is a reaction of that win.... My sympathy goes out to all those involved in this outragous incident....
Now we are in the presence of war. I ask if PEACE is possible. Is it that difficult to attain? Nobody speaks about it. Is it a forgotten issue? Peace, please, not war.

I'm really sad to know this, some people think that with the fear and terror they can rule the world , they must must stop all these destructions. I believe that only love alon can heal the world...All my prayers for London. Thnaks
From Venezuela my solidarity with all my friends in the Great Britain. My heart is with you.

Still waiting to hear if all of my family in England are okay. Waiting is hard but can't do anything else. If any of the Tilley Family are reading this - please let me, Kerry or Mom know that you are okay!!!!
my thoughts and prayers go to all the victims affected by the terrorist attack
this is terrible news
We are a determined and unified city and my thoughts to thos affected and well done to the emergency services for the work they are doing.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims of this tragedy. My thoughts are also with ALL of London. God Bless
Jim Tucker, USA
Our hopes and prayers are with all of England.
Without flags;without uniforms, they sneak into tubes and busses and maim innocent people. And, these cowards profess to do it in the name of God. How low can humanity plunge?
elma from the netherlands
We had already planned a visit to London during our summer holidays and now we will DEFINITELY go!! We support all people concerned with our warmest feelings of compassion. DO NOT LET THOSE COWARDLY TERRORISTS WIN AND TAKE AWAY THE STRENGTH OF YOU BEAUTIFUL CITY
With love from Holland
Why blame Tony Blair - this would have happened anyway, despite Iraq. Those who criticise/blame TB, Government, Police, ought to be ashamed of themselves. Where's your sense of national identity and pride?
Its a terrible day. I only hope that this will serve to fuel Londoners, and the rest of us in Britain, to fight against those cowardly 'martyrs' who are so misguided in their self-righteousness. Surely the martys are the ones who are innocently killed and not the killers? My heart goes out to everyone in London today. Its a sad day.
My sympathy goes out to all those involved in this outragous incident. People should not have to walk the streets with terror, which is exactly what the people responsible for these acts want.
Irfan Durrani, London
Its not the attack on people of a single religion, Its the attack humanity and all us Londoners.
Now is the time for all of us to stand side by side and show those terrorists that they can never win!
A muslim from London.
I just got back to my country after 3 years living in London, a city we fall in love with. I thought I left with nice memories and in a high with the bid win but this is horrible. My deepest feeling to all londoners
Today is a day that we will live in sorrow. These animals shall not get away with this we will strike back in the best way we can Britian will never negotiate with terrorists.
I wasn't there - but my thoughts and prayers are with all affected by these terrible attacks
My condolances to all the familys who have lost someone dear in these barbaric attacks. The poeple who have done this have no morals, these are innocent people that yet again suffer.
becci n edgey

My daughter arrived in London yesterday on vacation from the US. She just called to tell us what happened. She is now trying to figure out how to get out of London.
Its unbelievable news, this news shocked to everyone.I wasn't there but i can feel the sound of bomb blast
I am writting you from Madrid, as we know how you fell now, i think we all are with you in our prayers and our hearts. They will never win.
eileen milton keynes

I DONT HAVE WORDS TO DESCRIBE THESE FACTS

My compassion with all the people of London
I'm sad to hear about the devastation that just took place. It's frightening to think that the world is so small that we feel London's pain whereever we are.
all londoners are in our prayers.
Now Blair and his self-appointed global policeman Bush must know that they should never have trained such "terrorists", then "fredom fighters".
Liz Fevrier (Cape Town)
My heartfelt compassion for injured and hurt, but more so for relatives who lost loved ones. My son, Jared (19) started working at John Helix Furniture Store on Monday & I trust he is not injured. If anyone knows of him, please do e-mail me. It is a horrid feeling. firstname.lastname@example.org
We will not let this stir us into panic!
It will only make us stronger!
The thoughts and prayers of the United States is with you at this time
I hope and pray that London can remain calm in the midst of this confusion. My heart goes out to those who have lost loved ones; my thoughts are with those who are scared and traumatised; my prayers are with all of you - especially the emergency services:bless your leadership, your energies and your determination. God, help us.
my sympathy going out to all those of whom are grieving at this sad time. London people are not cowards and this will only make us stronger! We unite to help, and we shall win!!
thankfully i was not in London,my heart goes out to people who were,what goes through these peoples heads to cause such hurt caos and trauma?! pure EVIL!!!!!
We're all confined to the office at London Bridge with very little information on whats going on!
here round birmingham and wolvohapton we are warried that we are the next targat lets stom all this and bomb them
i am so shocked that something like this has happened and i feel so sorry for the people that has had to go through this from kirsty (sunderland)
Yesterday adversary, today unite against terrorism and horror. We must work together same brother rather than criticize ourselves. Courage for families
My thoughts are with all who have suffered this terrible terrorist attack. They must be stopped.
lauen laura becky hayley
sorry to the victims off this terrible ordeal. These people are sick and twisted
Only sick minds can conceive such a horror. They don't like life they don't like human being, they only are poor sick sad people and they are notgoing to win
I heard a loud bang so i ran and i didnt stop i got to the end of the street and see loads of smoke i was devastated
Gabby, Stevi and Claire
This is a very sad day for the people of london, our thoughts are with the family and friends of the many people that have been injured.
These terrorists will never win. In response to their rubbish - the british are not cowards.
This will only strengthen our resolve to beat you and crush you.
i really feel shocking when i hear the live address by blair to my radio
i am devistaded to here this and i am realy sorry to the people are injured and are dead
My compassion with all the people of England, especially Londonners
the attacks in london are totally unjustified
Put the rest of our cities on alert, it scares me to live in peterborough. My heart goes out to london and all involved
I live in Dubai. Perhaps even Tony Blair will understand some of the consequances of his actions now.His stupidity in saying it was "particularly Barbaric" to do it while a bunch of other politicians were meeting 400 miles away is especially self important.
Its a sad sad day.
I commute from High Wycombe on a daily basis. At the time I was on a tube at Oxford Circus when we were told that the Picadilly line was closed due to a power cut. I walked and used a bus for the remainder of my Journal. I learnt about the situation when I arrived at work.
I need to get back to High Wycombe. All modes of public transport are down, however, I will try and get home somehow.
i wasnt there but its an awfull thing to happen to anybody, but after the good news yesterday about the olympics
Why didn't Mr Blair say that we would hunt down these terrorists and their supporters and eliminate them!
i heard a very big bang and got realy scared i ran home not noing that a bomb had just blown up down a couple of streets
No but i'm really sorry to here whats happened and what a shame that yesterday we were just given the Olympics in the City
Its ghastly and appalling. Why this happened on the very next day of London winning the bid to host 2012 olympics? Are they(USA) frustrated?
So sorry for our English friends
we all think that this is a major problem and should not have happend the people that has done this are some sad people they must be some crazy idiots or person we all hope that the people who has got hurt are all ok.THIS IS GETING BEOND A JOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm 15 and i think this so stupid. Why can't countries just get on! All these terrorists should just leave us alone. We have tried our best to help them and get rid of poverty and this is all the thanks we get! Killing many beloved people just to prove a point - well it's not fair! They should be locked away for what they are doing to more families.
The explosion was amazing the sound was extraordinary and it was so scary.
