I knew it would happen. It was inevitable.

Something like the events of yesterday was bound to occur. I even considered it briefly when I was deciding whether to swap my 20-minute drive for a one hour commute into London.

My decision was easy, I wouldn't be cowed by the potential.

So now, I sit at my desk in the heart of the greatest city in the world, next to tourist destinations and busy shopping streets. I dance with tourists, shoppers and workers when I leave the office.

Today, London carried on.

The commute was the same as ever, the traffic and the walk the same as ever.London and its people are stronger than the actions of these cowards, these misfits, these animals.

We're not afraid of you.
