flying through or visiting?
I work in the travel industry and can tell you right now phone calls are coming in like crazy people trying to get out. Security will be almost prison like so be careful! Have a good trip ... where is your final destination ruby? If ya don't mind me asking!

yup, just flying through. My final destination is Spain (Barcelona to be exact). I am going to see my dad for three weeks since this is my last summer before I graduate college and probably my last real bit of freedom. I figured security would be very tight, and personally I don't mind. I never understood why people would complain so much here in America. The security workers are keeping us safe! Yes, it is a bit odd that they check baby diapers, but you have to think of the minds they are going up against! I'd rather have tons of security than hardly any at all.

I don't think these attacks had anything to do with the Olympics. They coincided with they opening of the G8 summit in Scotland.

My heart goes out to the British.

Well, I would be extremely surprised if they are anything ot do with the Olympics. The games would only now be moved if it became clear London could not hold them.

This isn't the first time London has been hit by terrorists and it may not be the last, but the typical British attitude that I witnessed today while I was caught up in the after-effects proves beyond a doubt to me that the terrorists will never defeat London.

My hearts truly go out to the families of the 33 (confirmed, probably more) people who after leaving for work will never return home.

A group of Islamics are taking responsibility for it. The story was provided by the link I posted earlier. They said that it is in retaliation of their soldiers being in Afghanistan.

The pictures that I have seen make me want to just sit and cry about the whole situation. It's just sad that you have to constantly worry about everything that could happen. I try not to worry about things but after 9/11 I avoided big public places for years. I didn't go to the World Series last year because of the rumored threats of attacks that were going to happen.
