Another bomb. Another terrorist attack. This time on the London underground. Please stay safe and get in touch with the police if you know anything or saw anything this morning. Londoners are opening up their homes to those affected so keep an eye on Twitter if you are in the capital as there are people there willing to offer help. The police have told people to stay vigilant as there might be other bombs. Terror.
I’ll just add a tiny comment – on the 5th I went to Warner Brothers to experience the Harry Potter tour together with my younger siblings. As we waited to be allowed in I became alarmed when I noticed two grown-up looking Arab men as I wondered: “are those two potential Jihadis?” Only young people or people with children were there, so these two men truly stood out. I kept an eye on them, especially when one of them all of a sudden was in the possession of three plastic bags that I have no idea where he got from. I have to admit that I had not even considered for a second that the Harry Potter studio experience could be targeted by Jihadis, but then all of a sudden I ended up looking over my shoulder constantly fearing that something would go off. Thankfully it didn’t but who knows, it easily could have.
This is the new reality of Europe, you have to stay vigilant at all times. So please remember this wherever you may be in Western-Europe. Even if it makes you feel bad, you can’t afford to let your guard down, especially if you are travelling with children.
