Londoners Back to Business as Usual Despite Terror Attack

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by yesterday’s terrorist attack in Westminster. While deeply saddening, one small comfort we can take from the tragedy is London’s incredible response to it.

Our wonderful, resilient capital has shown that it won’t give in to fear, nor will it be swayed by those who try to divide us. Less than 12 hours after the attack, London is back to business as usual – despite some claims of the city being ‘shut down’.

Whether riding a packed tube on the Jubilee line, walking over a teeming roundabout at Elephant & Castle, or peddling down Kingsland Road on the way to work this morning, London doesn’t so much as rise out of the ashes as stroll right through them.

These tweets are proof of that.

A few people even acted as if a silent tube carriage was out of the ordinary. Nah.

Finally, famous funny guy David Schneider listed the things that really strike fear into Londoners:

We might not have heart-to-heart convos on the tube (thankfully), but #WeStandTogether as one.
