I looked on in horror at the television reports of the terror attack on Westminster Bridge in London. There were so many people affected, either being physically injured by the marauding vehicle or jumping off the bridge to escape. Five people have died in this pointless attack, one a policeman who was fatally stabbed protecting our country.
My heart went out to the many tourists who had been caught up in this atrocity and I wondered what on earth I could do, if anything, to help those and all the citizens of London who have been permanently damaged, either physically or mentally.
There was nothing I could do from where I live on the Isle of Wight, nearly 4 hours away, at that time. I could only send positive and healing thoughts to all those involved.
I read about the black cab drivers who were taking people home at no cost to make sure they were ok. How wonderful to have that great act of kindness.
I read about the Uber drivers who were charging four times the fares to take people home. Such greed.
I wondered what I can do to help. I thought about it. What I can do now is help some of those who have been affected by listening to them, as often getting their own thoughts out of their heads is vital in their healing process. There would be no charge from me. I want to help in some small way. If you have been affected by this terror attack, or know someone who has, get in touch and I will listen and help where I can.
