Just now, I was privileged to stand with thousands out on Oxford Street in silence as we remembered the dead and their loved ones from last week’s senseless bombings.
It was a remarkable experience.
Oxford Street is to my perceptions the busiest shopping street in London and yet for the two minutes at noon the thousands who joined me out on the street were in silence. Buses, cabs and trucks stopped. The clothes store next door even interrupted it’s non-stop music(!).
And the end …
many of us quietly applauded.
I think we were applauding London at its best. I was proud to be part of that moment.
