Elven

Endurance

The bombings go on: Madrid, now London. A 'low intensity' war, a response of lesser abled ideologues employing guerilla warface tactics against the much greater powers, also ideologues; but right now, the moment is about the suffering of innocents.

I hope all my friends who live in or are staying in London are OK, and I also hope they were untouched by the bombings. I recall the Madrid bombings and my dread and anxiety that my sister-in-law and her family were but a few blocks from that bombing - that they (and I) used that very station to go about our lives.

Take care of yourselves dear friends - if you can, help the others not so fortunate to have escaped the maelstrom unleashed today.
