i am so glad for you that your friend is alive and being treated. i woke up this morning and put on the tv and the programme i was watching was reflecting on the events of yesterday. they had imense praise for the emergency services and were saying that all those how got to hospital, all survived and treatment is going well. so hopefully this will be the case, Nikki, for your friend. i am so proud of the way us Britsh people have coped with the events in London. people in the blasts are not running around looking for blame as they know that the right authorities will be doing their jobs and looking for these people (if i can even call them that) and deal with them accordingly. still, i wish everyone who walking wounded that was in the blasts and those families, well and RIP to those unfortunate to not survive. [/b][/quote] you just kind of took my thoughts and voiced them perfectly there. i was talking to my mum about this last night, we were saying how the emergancy services are amazing for doing what they did yesterday so quickly and keeping everyone calm and how amazing the British public are for keeping calm. as i said yesterday, it was a day that made me proud to be english.
