Tomorrow will be July 7th 2007, it will be the two year since four men killed 52 people and injured over 700 more. In the last week I have seen one report on the attacks and it was a group of survivors saying they have been ‘forgotten’ and im starting to think we have… I would think that along with the recent attacks, (and I call them attacks because we only stopped them by luck) that the 7th of July would be made to be a massive show of defiance to the attackers and extremists. The fact is that people are still feeling the attack in long-term injuries and post traumatic stress syndrome etc, but with just under a day to go until we should be remember these attacks, we have forgotten

Have we forgotten the 52 dead? Have we forgotten the 700+ injured?

Have we forgotten that a Frontiersman did 'something' and saved the day from being a total disaster .... allegedly.

Is it your point that we've forgotten, or is it that we don't need reminding?.

i think that the attacks last week should have been enough reminding, we shouldnt have needed it, but we need to remember and need to show we care

Think the answer to that is yes. Like most disasters that have happened in recent times, the tsunami for example, people just forget. More interested in remembering things that happened years and years ago.

I know 7/7 was terrorists attacks and the tsunami wasnt but people losing their lives 'out of no where' is the same thing to me.

Everyone remembers 9/11 (the scale was a bit different) not many remember 7/7.

There are memorial events taking place at the sites, led by (I believe ) Harriet Harman, followed by a hosted reception at a London venue.
But yes, I agree, not well publicised.

The country has not forgotten simply because we had a wee reminder last weekend in London and Glasgow to keep us in the stand too position for a long time to come.

I will be at Tavistock square to pay my respects then live my life to the full in London as way of saying , no Terrorist will change how I live, that is the best way paying ultimate respect to their lives.

During 1940-41 thaqt numbr of Londoners dies every day so why don't we shut up shop and all become proffesional grievers. Life has to go on and the fact that the media pick out certain events ,and the weepy brigade all fall over themselvs to show how sad they are does not mean that the non weepers have forgotten. The way to beat terroerism, apart of course from catching them, is to carry on with life.

Point taken, I think, Boris. Don't wallow in 'grief'. But " those who do not remember their history are doomed to repeat it".

Learn the lessons. There are nasty people out there who consider us targets. Be watchful ... and think!!!!

Some of the shite in her blog is rather outrageous though, well worth a trawl through on a wet Saturday afternoon.

Her old man was SOE, her mates all work for Special Branch ect, ect
