I was relieved to find in my inbox this morning a message from my sister-in-law in London that she and my brother, who works in the financial district, are OK. I suspect my brother will be walking home this evening.
After the first sense of relief, my next two thoughts were:
– What steps can we take to make sure our own transit systems here in Portland are as secure as they can be?
– If we let attacks like this affect our modal choices, the terrorists win.
