52 names…. 52 people … 52 families devastated by 4 men.
Typing these names into this entry, putting pictures to the names, every one has a family, every one was just going to work or out to town. 
Did they really deserve this?
 
I was on holiday when this was happening, sitting on a beach laughing when people were being blown to bits.
We only found out about it because a tv was on in the hotel lounge.
My brother works in Canary Wharf. Mobile networks were in meltdown,  no calls were getting through, no texts, nothing.
Scary scary feeling, worring about a member of your family,not  knowing if he was dead or alive , and praying that he had got to work early… or late.
 
After about 3 hours of wanting to spew, finally I got a text message comfirming he was ok.
I got very drunk that night.
