We are all Britons now

I've paced those streets. From Regents Park to Kensington, and from Russell Square to St. James...I've memorized those walks. Just me and London, together. We've been friends for years.

How terrible that no one can be surprised by bombings anymore.

I think of what I've said, reflecting on 9/11:

"In memory, it is akin to a natural disaster. I have to remind myself that it was an act by people." And, "...we have enemies, a fact that I too easily edit out of my consciousness."
