I Was In the London Bridge Terrorist Attacks

So you know, after I read your piece, the day the Borough Market reopened I walked up those very same steps and I thought of you. I stood with the crowd as they quietly listened and stood while the bell in the market rang…. As we “took back the market” with “love and justice” I watched the shopkeepers hug each other, some with tears rolling down their faces, and I watched strangers connect. My heart remains broken for all the innocent victims and I will never understand how something so tragic could happen intentionally by the hands of other humans. But I thank you again for sharing your story and reminding us that the only want to not let the bad guys win is to take back our towns and our cities and our hearts and our minds and fill them with the good stuff. And a pint somewhere in Southwark doesn’t hurt either.
