I was trying hard not to join the millions of bloggers expressing thoughts, feelings, insights into what happened yesterday in London. Partly because my feelings about 9/11 are so strong, but also because I was distracted.

What could distract me...The birth of my first niece.

What I realized this morning as I skimmed a few blogs about London was that my family's small miracle yesterday far out weighed the tragedy in London, for us anyway. Selfish bastards? No not all; the very reason these terrorists will never win. We (the collective civilized WE) value human life above all else and our way of life second to that.
