For the first time in what appears to be a week, the sun is shining. And it is shining brightly. After days of non-stop rain and a mini tornado in brimingham, we have returned to sunshine.

I am not yet saying that Summer has returned, because it is still cold out there, but it is a step in the right direction.

I see blue sky….

For the second time in as many weeks bombs have gone off in London. Or better, failed to explode fully. These scheisters have tried to blow up another three tubes and another bus.

What are you thinking??? If anything, it brings us closer together, not tear us apart!!

We have played BBC London Radio all day in our shop and people walking by stopped, and we had conversations. Americans, Australians, Europeans (French, Germans, Spanish, Polish, Italians, and many other regions), Turkish, stood with us from time to time, and you could see tears form in some of those eyes and then relief when they heard that nobody had died. People were helping each other with finding alternative ways to reach their destination while the underground was suspended. There was a true community feeling, just that the community was from all over the place.

I love London, and whatever you do, you cannot defeat the spirit of my town.

As someone else put into words so much better a couple of weeks ago, here again, the poem, London Pride.

London Pride

You come to place your bags of hate
On bus and train, you made us late
Yet well be back again tomorrow
Well carry on despite our sorrow

Your bags of hate caused some to die
Yet we stride out strong with heads held high
Youll never win, we will not bow
You cant defeat us, you dont know how

This London which we love with pride
Is a town where scum like you cant hide
Dont worry we will hunt you down
Then Lock you up in name of Crown

Were London and were many races
Just look youll see our stoic faces
We all condemn your heinous act
You will not win and thats a fact

Well mourn our dead and shed a tear
But we will not bow to acts of fear
Youre out there somewhere all alone
Theres nowhere now you can call home

Olympics ours weve won the race
Your timing then a real disgrace
Our strength youll find remains unbowed
Were London and were very proud.

A Poem by Chris Neal
