Olivia I don't know but I didn't find it appropriate when people made jokes about the attacks.

Now the drawing you have are not like that and I like them, but I've seen drawings that were just making casual fun at all this :(

Everyone here is saying that London's reaction has been great and very civilised and positive.

Olivia said...

Steliano, I agree with you - and for me, even the second cartoon is near the limit. I would not put up any irreverent ones.

London is very calm, businesslike, and determined to continue life as usual.

does that mean the over all damage was minimal?
It's great that they are continuing life as usual, otherwise it would have been a success for the terrorists.

Minimal? Yes - only about 50 dead (keep in mind, during rush hour), one damaged bus, some damaged train carriages.

It's the new motto all over: "We are not afraid." Changing our routines would be admitting fear and defeat. We are not doing what the terrorists want.

How many dead did the madrid bombing have? Do you remember?

Thanks for visiting my blog :)

I tried to take your Mythological Creature test, but the link didn't work for me. I'm guessing I'm not an Angel lol Or a mermaid.

Am I stealing some of Jason's blog time? Jason... comment for Olivia!

Oh well. Have to run. Take care.

Thank you for visiting, Aladdin. I wish I could read the Arabic on your page, but it is beautiful to look at :) and your poems are lovely.
