Feeling London's Pain

DW-WORLD received a plethora of e-mails following the bombings in London last week, many of which expressed sympathy with Londoners. Here's a selection.


Londoners of all backgrounds were affected by the blasts

Deepest sympathy to all those who have lost loved ones in London. We must work together all around the world to put an end to this type of terrorism. -- Linda Born

We have been to London countless times and often times close to Russell Square where one of the bombs exploded. We have friends in England and immediately got on the phone to offer our support and condolences -- same as they did for us at the time of the 9/11 tragedy. We will be praying that somehow these terrorists will be caught and duly punished for killing and hurting innocent people who did them no harm. -- Mary Elizabeth Malberg

The thought that sticks in my mind is what if there are blasts set in every country that was nominated for the Olympics. What a coup for them to spoil the Olympic Games, perhaps even delay them. Every morning, I have moments of anxiety before I turn on the TV for the morning news -- since 9/11. This morning, the anxiety was justified. -- Charlotte Leffler

I simply want to extend my sympathy and express my horror at what has happened today in London. I'm not sure how our government or the leaders of Europe and Britain are going to stop these insane extremists but we have to find a way some how. This is continuing to happen all over our world and it's simply crazy! After the horror, death and insanity of 9/11 and then the terrible deaths with the Madrid bombings, something has to change and it has to change NOW! -- Janis Russo, USA

Shock, outrage and dismay. Inside every Christian are the teachings of Christ our Lord, love, peace and fellowship. Feelings of rage and vengeance threaten to push those teachings aside. Those Londoners were innocent victims, and cowardly acts like those bombings spread hate! -- Bill Shepherd

My heart goes out to the people of London for their loss -- loss of loved ones and loss of peace of mind. I hope the responsible parties are caught and severely punished. Our world will never know the security, the innocence that it once enjoyed. Mankind seems intent on destroying itself in some form or fashion. -- Michelle Parriott, Austin, Texas
