Two minutes.

Today marks a year since the London bombings (and bless those of you who emailed me wondering if I was okay). Since I had no family or friends involved with the attacks and wasn't directly affected myself, it's impossible for me to know how it truly feels, so I won't even try.
But I will say that people who announce that they don't intend to take part in the two minutes' silence scheduled for today really, really need to work on their sensitivity. If they don't want to, fine - just don't advertise it. It doesn't make anyone feel any better, and just makes them in particular look worse.

And please, stop calling it by that date abbreviation. Playing me too with the terminology of other terrorist attacks is sick.

Well said, Victor.

And I for one am glad you weren't affected by the bombings.
