Shadows from London Attacks 2017: Reflections by an American in its midst

By Special Contributor Danny Para

The night of the London attack I just happened to be at home, getting ready to shut down when the texts started coming through. My friend Junior had sent me multiple texts to ensure I was fine so I immediately Googled ‘London’ and the news started to come through. Instantly, I started to hear the sirens and it all started to be surreal.

Once I turned on the news and realized that the attacks happened at Borough Market and London Bridge, I was just kind of shocked that it was so close. I watched the news for about two hours just trying to decipher what happened and felt a bit relieved when I found out the suspects were apprehended.
