Almost London Car Bombing; House-sit Continues

In case you haven’t heard:

A car bomb planted in central London would have caused “carnage” if it had exploded, police say.

A controlled explosion was carried out on the car, packed with 60 litres of petrol, gas cylinders and nails, in Haymarket, near Piccadilly Circus.

An ambulance crew saw smoke coming from the green Mercedes, near the Tiger Tiger nightclub at 0130BST (030GMT).

London’s Park Lane was later cordoned off while a suspicious vehicle was investigated.

Scotland Yard, Assistant Commissioner Tarique Ghaffur urged people to be “alert and vigilant” and to report any suspicions to the police.

Looks like we’re going to have all sorts of heightened security when we go on our church trip to England 24 days from now since the threat level has been increased. But I never understand those threat levels. How do they know that the threat has heightened? Isn’t it more just like an “awareness level” since whenever they raise it the only thing that happens is heightened awareness. I don’t think some terrorists are going to go out bombing on a day when the threat level is on red, because, hey they’ll get caught. The system doesn’t make any sense to me! Anyway.

I’m sitting at home right now, getting things done on drums and such before I go back to my house sitting place right after dinner. Thanks for reading.

    The Boston bombings will dfilniteey be remembered for a very long time. There is no doubt that the annual Boston Marathon will bring back the sad memories every year. Although the terrorist attack frightened the nation and put us in panic mode, I don’t think that as a whole we will be affected nearly as much as 9/11. For example, a few days after the bombings I was out in public with my family and we went to a restaurant. All of us noticed that even with knowing that our country was attacked and two bombers were on the loose, looking around we could see that people were still going out to eat and still going about their usual business. For us, this showed that even when critical events like this happen, life still goes on. It is not by uncaring or inconsiderate means, but more of understanding that we cannot let terrible incidents like this keep us from moving on and instilling fear in us that can only make our predicament worse. Also, one of the great things about living in the USA is that we are aware that we are in the good hands of our law enforcement. We are also pacified by our leaders and people who stand up and inform the public of the current situations and what to keep cautious of. Another thing that I noticed is about the role of the citizens. When terror strikes our nation, I feel that we no longer see ourselves as individuals, but as a unity. Our mindsets seem to switch over and cohere to a mindset belonging to a huge team. Together we stay strong and know that we can’t let terrorist attacks weaken our entire nation. We can also help keep watch for the suspects.I think that the Boston bombings might change immigration laws and make them stricter in order to try and prevent people like this from entering the country. I’m not sure that this event will affect any future gun legislation because changing gun laws will not really prevent terrorist attacks such as this from happening.
