one week on

Life is as normal and it's not.

I went outside to stand in the street for the 2 minutes silence, as did many of the other staff here. Someone commented she'd never seen such a response before. The chaplaincy centre was full.

We stood there in silence for our different reasons; to show defiance, to grieve, to stand together, to remember, to pray for London. Then, as people glanced at their watches, we dispersed again.

I don't yet know what the long term consequences will be, but I pray that God uses this for good.

They crossed live to London on tv here in NZ for the two minutes silence so I observed it too. I hope your day is a good one today.
