I’ve been casting a nervous eye toward the news throughout the day ever since I heard reports this morning that London police found a car bomb in the British capital.
I was in London as recently as Wednesday, after having spent three weeks in the U.K. with my girlfriend–now fiancee–visiting family in my native Scotland. My Mum, step-dad and 18-year-old brother, Gordon, are still in London and are scheduled to fly back to Texas on Saturday.
Tensions are high in London, but my family is doing just fine. I texted my Mum this morning after I heard the news. In a suspicously quick return text message–making me think my brother did the typing–she reported back: “We are fine. Drinking Guiness at Wimbledon.”
Life goes on.
