Almost one year ago, I walked the streets of London, and spent time with good friends, along with working harder than ever on my writing. Today, from deep within my editing cave, I think back on those times. After news of Westminster broke this morning, I’ve scrolled through my snapshots a fair number of times. They aren’t particularly great shots but for me, each of them carries a memory of a person or a conversation, and that’s what makes them special. May the spirit of London continue to enchant and inspire, may Londoners forever be defiant in their courage, optimism, and togetherness.[easy-tweet tweet=”May the spirit of London continue to inspire, may Londoners forever be defiant in their courage.” user=”damyantig” hashtags=”#WATWB” url=”http://ow.ly/iyQ630abDek”]
I’d just like to add that I see a lot of sadness in the news today, and everyday, from London, from Syria, and other war-torn places in the world. I do not suggest flinching from it, but I also do not recommend wallowing in it. Instead let us spread just a little light, in our own small way. For me, I’ve just shared a few photos of London and its people, on social media, and posted an album of them here.
