My son is in London and one of the trains that blew up is his normal train for work. That day he and girlfriend went to work early. You can be lucky. We have lots of friends who have kids over there and thankfully none are injured or worse. Do we live in the lucky country or what!!

We are lucky that we havnt had any terrorist attacks.
Not so lucky to have Howard as prime minister.

Is it just my perception or did the roads in to work seem a lot more congested than usual. Driving past the train stations I noticed that there was not as many commuters walking out of the stations.

We all take it for granted and say that these types of things would never happen in OZ but there does seem to be a flow on effect from the televison footage last night with many people changing their traveling habits the next day.

All I can say is live life to the fullest and peace to all.

Deepest Sympathy to any members or visitors who have been affected by this tragedy.

When you do that you give in to terrorism. And we should never, ever do that.

Not going is playing into their hands; it's exactly what they want to achieve; to make you frightened.

I lived in the UK when Thatcher gave Reagan permission to use USAF bases in the UK to bomb Tripoli - in the summer following, to their everlasting shame, many Americans cancelled holidays to Europe and particularly the UK.

Once you stop doing the things you normally do then they have won. It's times like this we need courage.

Terrorism will never go away and it will never be curtailed by trying to appease the perpetrators – in any fashion.

The Brits are a tough bunch – the Germans could not defeat them, the PLO couldn’t in the 70s and the IRA have been unable to since the start of the Troubles in 1969. It’ll take more than these bastards to do it. If I had a Union Jack I’d be flying it today.
