Post subject: 7/7 Remember.
Hi all .would like to ask you all to take 5min out of your day just to remember all those that did not make it through the 7/7 bombing in London. I was one of the lucky ones.
I can remember the day as if it was yesterday. I had travelled up to London by train for work meeting. I had been reluctant to go but dont know why I felt that way. I told my boss how I was feeling and she said dont be silly. I arrived at Euston then went onto tube and to Kings cross. Got onto another tube which was full and left the station. We did not know what was going on was it a crash or what. It was dark and we had been thrown forward.
Even though there was utter devistation there was this strange quiet and calm. We lwft the tube and walked in the dark back to the station. From a bad act came a good thing I met a new friend. I was trying to get up onto the tube platform and she held out her hand. We were lead out of the darkness and the light seemed blinding there were helicopters above and police on horseback and injured people.
My new friend and I stayed together all day. Cant tell you what we talked about just sat with all the others drinking tea and praying there would be no more bombs. We were taken to a building to stay safe and to be chcked over. I tryed to phone my family to tell them I was safe but all networks had been cut. I could only imagine what my family were going through. We were then told it was a bomb but not one many. I felt as this was a film and I was an extra I did not seem reall but it was.
After 7hours we were told there would be trains leaving Euston if we wanted to go home.At this point I left my friend as she was going to Padington station and we were taken to the train station. Still the helicopters were above and still the feeling of calm. On the train strangers cumfoted eachother and told their story. My mobile started to ring it was not ringing it was a mass of text messages coming through these took 2 days to clear.
I remember steping off the train in wales and thinking did this really happen?
Well it did. I will never forget that day I was lucky. My friend and I still keep in touch. We shared something that I cant explain our friendship is special.
Today the news does not even mention it but then every channell was showing it. Its old news to some but very reall to me.
I sorry I have gone on but I think people forget about what happened and we need to remember those that were not as lucky as I was.
Love to families and friends to those people.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. This is the first time I have written about it but feel you ladies on this forum will understand what I feel. We have all come together on this forum. We do not know eachother but we still support eachother and that is a wonderfull thing.
Thanks
Frog. x x

I have never experienced anything like that and tor ead your story is so humbling.

It's good that you can talk about it and make others understand what you went through.

I hope that you and your friend stay friends for life hun.

Hi Frog

your story is horrible, but also really warming in some ways. Makes you realise the meaning of that saying 'every cloud has a silver lining'.

Thanks so much for sharing - definitely made me stop and think hard.

Frog, your story really touched me and reminded me of my gran telling me her story of the Lockerbie air disaster which will have been 20 years ago this december. I remember how haunted her eyes were when she told of all the horrendous things she saw and how the sky had turned red and everyone in her house thought that the world was ending. I can remember my mum trying to phone her over and over for hours and not being able to get through and how scared we all were so all the worried text messages you told of are very familiar to me.

Thankyou for reminding me to be thankful for the life that I have xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Thanks girls. I does make you think about your own life. That day changed my life in a big way. Even though I ttc for 10months and I get AF I still in a way thankful that I am here and able to TTC. I think sometimes in life it takes something like this to happen to make u realise how lucky u are even at times u dont feel it. (espesialy when AF arrives ha)
Anyway thanks for your thoughts and for taking time out to read and reply.
x Love to u all.

wow what a story i cant even try and understand how you and so many others went through and are still going through.
take care we are all so lucky and sometimes we should take time in our day to realise that instead of moaning about the silliest of things... xxxxxxxxxxxx
