Awful, awful you feel was almost overdue. For whatever reason we put ourselves in the firing line by joining in the illegal war in Iraq but inevitably it's normal, decent people who end up paying (just like is happening in Iraq).

I can't imagine how it must be to be caught up in that whirlwind. Either being involved in the actual attack or having a loved one suffer. Truly terrible. It can pull the rug from underneath you, shatter your safe little world knowing that ultimately you can't do anything to prevent every plot and plan.

Growing up in Liverpool meant we were relatively safe from IRA violence. Liverpool is basically a Catholic city and so was spared bombings (Warrington and Manchester are just 20 miles away and weren't) so, in short, I can't offer anything meaningful other than my prayers and best wishes.

God bless
