July 14 Part II
New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia are observing a moment of silence today at twelve noon our time in honor of those who died in the London bombings last week.
We were supported by the British in the aftermath of 9/11 and offer as much comfort and support as we can in return.
Personally, I think the entire country should observe the moment, as the entire country of Britain showed us so much support and respect. But, as I mentioned on someone else’s blog comments, when she wondered why, in other states, the flags flew at full mast immediately after the bombings – the places that didn’t live through an attack just don’t get it. It’s something “out there” that many individuals have some sort of empathy and compassion for, but it doesn’t affect their daily lives in the same way as it does ours.
Hopefully, they can remain blissfully ignorant and safe from what it feels like to either live through it or have lost someone or many someones in such a blast.
