(POSTED ABOARD THE DISNEY MAGIC OFF THE COAST OF MEXICO)
As we prepared to leave on a land excursion from the Disney Magic yesterday (Wednesday), the organizer of our event was a young British crew member. He was stuttering and messing up the instructions because he was SO excited that his hometown of London had just been awarded the 2012 Olympics. I’d say he is around 20 years old, has a very young face, and was just so ecstatic over the news that it very enjoyable to watch his glee.
And then came the attacks on London today.
This afternoon we saw him for the first time. He stood at the end of the pool and dove feet first straight in, sunglasses still on his head. The joy was no longer on his face.
I extend my sincere sympathies to our civilian brethren in the United Kingdom, Spain, Bali, Australia, Afghanistan, Iraq….all of whom have been touched by the evil hand of Al-Qaeda.
Freedom and liberty will prevail. But we need to have the perserverance of Winston Churchill to make sure we are on the right side of victory.
For those who live in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, I would encourage you to visit the British Embassy and sign the condolence book and leave red, white and blue flowers. (We did that at the Spanish Embassy after the Madrid bombings last year).
Those of you outside of DC, please visit your local British consulate to pay your respects. Here is a link showing where the consulates are across the USA.
Today is a day of mourning. Tomorrow, World War Three continues whether some care to realize it or not….
