Certainly, this morning, all thoughts are with the City of London after a series of terrorist attacks rocked the capital of England.
Not a day goes by here without thoughts of September 11, 2001 and events like the ones witnessed in the Underground transport system in Central London certainly rip open those wounds.
According to the BBC, several explosions occurred between Aldgate East and Liverpool Street tube stations; between Russell Square and King's Cross tube stations; at Edgware Road tube station; and on a double-decker bus at Tavistock Square. Click here for a map
The bus bombing was specifically timed to go off after the tube stations were shut off and people flocked to the buses to take them to their destinations.
Describing the bus blast in Tavistock Square, eyewitness Belinda Seabrook said she saw an explosion rip through the bus.
"I was on the bus in front and heard an incredible bang, I turned round and half the double-decker bus was in the air," she said. "It was a massive explosion and there were papers and half a bus flying through the air, I think it was the number 205," she said. "There must be a lot of people dead as all the buses were packed, they had been turning people away from the Tube stops."
One caller to BBC Five said his friend had seen "the bus ripped open like a can of sardines and bodies everywhere."
A bus? Guess what? That's a suicide bomber. And that opens up a whole new can of worms. They don't just happen in Tel Aviv and Basra anymore. They've reached the Western World.
I dunno, but perhaps the folks at the G-8 meeting can stop worrying about Africa for the afternoon and figure out how to stop this crap. Hate to be cruel, but I'm a little selfish here.
