Terrorism in Central London - EFT

I quoted the great Bill Shankly yesterday in a blog that football was more important than life and death. That was tongue-in-cheek for effect of the issue I wrote about. The devastating events that had occurred this morning in areas of central London clearly emphasises that. My condolences to those whose friends, relatives or acquaintances died today as a result. I, and I expect I speak for the other members here at elitefootballtalk, sincerely hope for a speedy recovery for those injured.

We have had yet another reminder that we should not take life for granted, particularly in London but it can be anywhere. We need to be vigilant, we can consider ourselves crazy for reporting the slightest suspicion, but it can be that craziness that can save lives. Let's not forget that.

I was just about to enter King's Cross tube station, when I heard ambulance, police cars people coming out covered in smoke. I had not realised what had happened. I don't think anybody around me knew what happened.

It was only when I made it into work the enormity of the blasts hit me.

I have had so many what "if" questions running through my mind since then.

I know all my friends and family are ok. But not everyone is as fortunate as me.

I am so angry about what has happened. There are so many innocent people trying to get on with their every day life, and it seems some people are intent on casuing carnage at any costs.

The whole incident makes you disgusting. Killing innocents people. It brings shame to humanity.

That is the shocking, audacity element of the actions. This is targeted to hit a fraction of the central London infrastructure and inevitably includes innocent lives. But it is the innocents who appeal to the Government why they are targeted.

The timing, smacking of measured effect, coinciding with the Metropolitan security at the G8 meeting, the global eye on London as the voted host for the 2012 Olympic Games. This is barbaric.

I felt sick today after hearing about what had happened. We must all remain strong. We must never give in to these cowardly terrorists. They will one day pay for what they have done.

Thank you Redsman for creating this post. It is at times like these that that things such as football should be seen in a greater context.

I am a proud Londoner and feel very sad indeed that people have done this to the city and people I love.

I echo everyone who writes for EFT in sending our thoughts and condolences to the family and friends of those killed and injured by the criminal bomb blasts in London.

May all those responsible for causing indiscriminate loss of life be apprehended and punished.
