1. A few things:
1) Donate blood, especially if you're a rare type;

2) Lobby for a full investigation;

3) Send good vibes.

London is resilient. The unaffected parts of the tube will be reopening tomorrow morning!

2. OK
Not rare, but I'll donate anyway. And yes, will lobby for the investigation and good vibes.

4. I will be praying for our
Brothers and Sisters in London.

We in America are so sorry this has happened.

3. Patience and prayers for now

I think the odds of any blood you donate here being used in London are slim. Of course, blood banks are chronically short on supply, so regular donation is a good idea in any case.

I expect in the next few days whatever relief agencies get involved will let us know how we can best help.

As for an investigation, don't forget the British press is pretty fierce about these things. Someone will dig up the truth no matter what.

6. I'm happy that Britain has
a real press, especially in light of today.

5. Taverner...
What a lovely thought from you.

While everyone is else is bickering, I will be sending my good vibes and donating blood for my community in honor of the UK.

Thank you for being the nice voice of reason here. :)
