July 7th London Bombings..x

This post isn't going to be about makeup or beauty, it's about what happened in London 4 years ago.

My Internet collapsed last night so i couldn't post it then but i still wanted to pay tribute to the 52 people who lost their lives that day and also to those who're still suffering today.

4 years ago on the 7th July 2005, four bombs exploded around London, three on the underground and one on a double decker bus killing 52 people and injuring hundreds.

I can still remember that day, i was actually in London on a school trip to Greenwich and i'm sure everyone else in the UK can remember where they were and what they were doing at the exact moment they found out.

I do feel that yesterday Michael Jackson's memorial service was given preference over remembering those innocent people and i'd just like to pay tribute to them because it was also a day for them.

A beautiful memorial was unveiled yesterday in London's Hyde Park. It's a very simple structure of 52 beams, one for every victim of the attacks with a plack for all of their names and i think it it's a perfect tribute to them.

May we never forget that day and only hope that the government will finally honour the victims and their families by giving them the inquest that they deserve into how the bombers plotted the attacks.
Rest In Peace xx

  1. The memorial is beautiful. I didn't know about it until I read your post.

    I didn't hear anything yesterday about remembering the people who lost their lives, which is very disappointing.
