As we still come to terms with, and get our heads around, the shocking events of the “terrorist incident” outside the Houses of Parliament on 22nd March 2017, we have to also take the time to look within ourselves, and to those around us and say: #WeAreNotAfraid

In an attack that, at it’s current reporting, has left over 40 people injured, and 5 dead, we can’t even begin to even imagine what being on London Bridge at that moment must have been like. The BBC details the PM speaking on the victims today:
They included 12 Britons, three French children, two Romanians, four South Koreans, two Greeks, and one person each from Germany, Poland, Ireland, China, Italy and the United States.
Three police officers were also hurt, two of them seriously.
The message in the aftermath is clear, however. We will mourn. But we will not be broken. Here’s proof of that much needed human resilience:
