London Remembered the 7/7 Subway Train and Bus Station Bombings
London Remembered the 7/7 Subway Train and Bus Station Bombings:
It has been ten years since the horrible bomb attacks tore London’s subway trains and bus stations apart, killing more than 50 people. The entire UK marked the anniversary today with a minute of silence. Heads were bowed and flowers were laid at the London Underground Station including the square where the bombings occurred.
In honoring the lost lives of the London bombings, the trains and buses also came to a complete stop. Formally, a service of commemoration was organized at the St Paul’s Cathedral, where families of the survivors and those killed got together. The bishop of London addressing the families said that chaos and eruption into anger would have easily happened after the bombings as a shock, but it didn’t happen.
London Mayor Boris Johnson and Prince Andrew were also present at the occasion, which included each of the 4 bombing sites reflections.
Prime Minister Johnson and David Cameron laid wreaths there on Tuesday morning in commemoration at the exact same time when the first bomb detonated.
Prince William also attended an afternoon service at the memorial, consisting of 52 pillars made of stainless steel, depicting each victim of the bombings. The witnesses and survivors of the event spoke at the open air service, intimate than the St Paul’s Cathedral.
