My first response to the news from London Bridge was that I should buy a ticket to go along with Arthur in a couple of weeks, and defiantly walk across bridges. As opposed to walking across bridges as a convenient way to get someplace, which I have done many times. The bad guy witches in Harry Potter (don't remember which movie) destroyed the Millennium Bridge, but people with vans instead of brooms couldn't get onto it. After the initial response (not practical, if only because I have parental visits during Arthur's trip), I felt guilty about how UK-centric my reactions are - I eat a lot of ice cream, but didn't jump on a plane to Bagdhad to eat in solidarity with the residents there after the fatal bombing of an ice cream shop by ISIS last week.
Edit - the ice cream shop re-opened today (Sunday). Is there some way for an English-only speaker (me) to send them a bunch of money so they can give out free cones?
