It has been a long time since I last posted on this blog, but I felt I had to return give the events that happened yesterday outside Parliament.
A mass murderer decided to attack our primary democratic institution and ended up killing 3 people (as it stands at the moment) including a policeman - Keith Palmer and severely injuring many others.
Yes, we can call this a terrorist attack - but only if we are terrified. This was a mass murderer trying to make a name for himself and the twisted ideology he believed in.
I've written on this blog today because my very first post in July 2005 was my immediate response to the Tavistock bombings.
Vigilant - yes. Concerned - Yes. Compassion for those caught up in the attack - Yes; without hesitation.
Terrified - Never.
