7-7 in Memoriam

July 7 is a memorable day because of the 7-7-5 bombings in London. I remember the day well because I had just moved to Houston and my best friend Simone was living in London. We finally made contact via email and she was totally safe.

Who knew that a year later I would be living there too - and that my job would take me to Kings Cross Tube Station every day - the location of the bombings. Flowers are placed by the memorial each year and I imagine that today there is a huge garden or remembrance.
