LONDON TIMES : July 10, 2006

July 7 – 1 year after the London Blasts

This was an emotional day in London, I think for the UK in general. There was a 2 minutes observance of silence across the UK in remembrance of the waste of lives as a result of the bombing on London's transport network. It was broadcast on the BBC including a vigil in Reagent's Park.
We all observed the 2 minutes silence at work, including all the students, we all stood for the time. Staff shared their stories from where they lived, the loss of friends and family members. I have to tell you, I wanted to go into Reagent's Park for the ceremony but I wasn't feeling the most confident pour throwing myself down into the bowels of London.

They were charging up to 5 times the French shelf value, making a killing
