We Will Never Forget those We Lost in London on 7/7/2005

The 7/7 Memorial at Hyde Park

On 7 July 2005, 8:50 am–9:47 am (GMT) Islamic terrorists attacked London.
At 08:50, three bombs exploded within fifty seconds of each other on three London Underground trains, a fourth exploding an hour later at 09:47 on a double-decker bus in Tavistock Square. 56 people were killed and over 700 got injured.

Every July 7, we light a candle in memory of those we lost and remind our enemies that by shedding innocent blood they have only turned the wrath of God against them and that until they repent, they will never know peace and will not escape the consequences of their evils.

I dedicated the book of my poems Scarlet Tears of London in memory of the victims of the London terrorist suicide bombings and it was released in 2006.

Many of the poems captured the tragedies of the suicide bomb attacks, the pains and tears of the bereaved and the condemnation of injustice and terrorism.
