What does London mean for you?
My memories of London are of the attack on 9-11 and a city that felt our pain.
We were on a bus tour of Europe on 9-11 - just getting on a gondola in Venice when we heard.
Our tour ended in London on that following Sunday.
The expressions of sympathy for us Americans across Europe was heary warming. But especially so in London.
The particular place that stands out is the park in front of the US embasy that has a statue of Roosevelt in it.
When we got there on that Sunday morning the base of the statue of Roosevelt was covered with flowers. There was a tent with a book of condolences. The line to sign the book went out the park and down the street as far as the eye could see. A member of the royal family was greating any Americans he could identify and offering his condolences.
London will always have a warm spot in my heart as a caring, compasionate city. And of the park that connects our two countries.
