Thanks Dan

Yesterday - 7/7 - was the first anniversary of the London suicide bombings; events which have affected the lives of us all - even those of us removed from the Capital.

Shortly before noon yesterday I was speaking on the phone to Dan and as the clock struck the hour he observed that it was the two minutes silence and put the phone down. Thanks Dan for reminding me to take time out to remember those who'd lost their lives, the maimed and injured, their famillies and all those whose bravery, compassion and expertise came to the fore on the day and in the following weeks and months. (And a thought too for London, that cosmopolitan melting pot, that picked itelf up, dusted itself down and got on with business as usual.)
