One Year On - so what?

The media seem determined to make an event out of the first anniversary of the London bombings. It seems ironic given how little we let it impact our lives last year when it actually happened. Lot’s of public fuss about the anniversary is only making the terrorists successful and while, hopefully for some of the victims, it may be a cathartic time, I’m sure everyone involved in the events would rather not handle today in the glare of the media spotlight; that doesn’t achieve anything good for anyone.

I suppose there is a reason why summer is termed the ‘silly season’ in the press; there’s not much real news around. I rather like this article though; it’s in the same vein as the original reaction, even if it does lay the stoicism on with a trowel!
