Attacks in London

Startling and unsettling news today that London was hit by several explosions today. It has been a rollercoaster of emotion for that city in the past week - the Live 8 conference spreading goodwill, the Olympic announcement inspiring jubilation, and now the city struck with fear and forced into mourning.

The world seems to be getting less and less safe. They had police officers with guns and dogs sweeping the Metro trains here in DC today. You don't realize how something like that will shake your confidence in your safety until you see it. Then you realize all the days they haven't had to be there - and it makes you appreciate those days and that lack of "fear." It all makes you wonder where the world is headed.

My thoughts go out to those in London.
