No Surrender to Terror

I just heard about the bus and Tube bombings in London, and I can't begin to describe how I feel. Part of me is deathly worried for the Londoners I know, and praying hard. Another part is grimly wishing to wring a few terrorist necks. But part of me...part of me is very proud, because I read this:

I'm writing this sitting in my office in London working as normal.

As I look out the window I see no buses, very few cars but lots of people walking on the streets...Londoners walking left, right, up the street, down the street, going about their normal lunchtime business.

We have faced terror before - Nazi terror, Irish Republican terror - and have not been beaten. This will not beat us either.

The overwhelming feeling round our office is "Is this best they can do?"

You rule, Britannia.

Britannia rules the waves.

Britons never, never, never will be slaves.

UPDATE: Pretty much all the London filkers and fans are present and accounted for! Here's hoping we lucked out....
