I wanted to take a moment today to send my prayers warmest thoughts to British friends and residents after today's horrendous bombings in London. I first learned about the news from my Friend Randy over morning coffee, I'm now streaming BBC to keep up on what's happened and the details.
I'm actually a bit worried at the moment, as my friend Andy is in London for a university field trip today — I'm hoping that he was not effected by the blasts, but I've not heard anything back from Andy just yet.
Update 9:15 AM CST: Andy is in London and OK. He responded to my friend Lo's SMS message a short while ago with this reply:
I am in London as I was scheduled to visit [...] Didn't happen as all pub transport was off. I'm fine but didn't achieve what I came to do. :-(
Good to hear Andy is OK, however there will likely be many who are not, and that is very disturbing.
