London calling to the faraway townsI heard about the London bombings through wikinews and blogs. I watched people trying to make sense of these attacks together, collecting facts and telling their stories. Calling out to us.
Now war is declared and battle come down
London calling to the zombies of deathAnd calling out defiance, pride and history too, whether from near or far.
Quit holding out and draw another breath
London calling yes I was there too
An' you know what they said - well some of it was true!
London calling at the top of the dial
An' after all this won't you give me a smile?
I never felt so much alike...
My father and sister both went through affected tube stations that day. That bus blew up right outside my old office in London.
I'm proud of England's response, and that people are getting back to work and play. I intend to do the same.
