Our Thoughts and Prayers are with the Brits

Today Americans are keeping all the Brits in our thoughts and prayers, especially those in London, and express our sincere sympathy to those whose loved ones were killed or wounded in these horrific, cowardly attacks on innocent citizens. Today I watched, with admiration, as the Brits reacted to these attacks by displaying same grit and steel they became known for during the Second World War. I was very impressed with the citizenry, and with the well-trained, courageous "first responders". I am thankful the Brits have such leadership as Tony Blair, and the wonderful Mayor of London, Ken Livngstone, who seems to be an inspirational and courageous leader, as Rudy Guiliani was for New York after 9/11.
