Make It History
Author: Ben Franklin


It was going to happen,
it was just a question of when,
the world was slowly getting back to normality
then it decided to strike again.

Such a cowardly act,
you plant then hide,
but we will get through this era of destruction,
we as strong human beings always find a way.

These people will never win,
they will suffer sooner or later
for their life of sin,
they can Only be judged by HIM.

Why they cause so much pain is
still a mystery,
lets join hands,
be strong,
and make it History.

------- Author's Notes -------

Its been so surreal here today in london. its the way i commute everyday to work, but im of work this week with tonsilltis. I feel very blessed. my heart goes out to the people involved, their famlies, and a big thank you to the paramedics and to the great human kindness that we have been blessed with.

Those innocent people who died today

I really feel sad about those innocent people who died today and all the hundreds of injured. Sorry to hear about your country. Someday there will be peace, maybe not in our life time. Question? Those people willing to die and get 72 virgins? I don't get it either? Lucky you weren't one of them and home with tonsilitis. Nice poem, rest and take care of yourself.

Wonderful read

Yesterday I got on a bus,and I noticed people just checked each other out visually,if you might be one of them.I saw a man with a backpack.And funnily enough, even though I don't stereotype,I carefully run my eye over this man.“Could he be one of them?”London was brilliant in dealing on 07/07!And I do believe that the attacks didn't scare us as they might have hoped!

keeping strong...

so sad that we have another date to remember. but watching people going to work on the news was a great site...still in their minds but keeping strong.
