Tragic London Blast Affects G-8 Summit

As many of you know already, four explosions in London have killed at least 40 people at this point and injured 350 more at this point. The US Government is currently raising the transit security warning levels to orange and national levels are staying at yellow.

This terrorist act is being claimed by The Secret Organization of al-Qaida in Europe, but the British, French, and US authorities have not yet confirmed that this is indeed the group.

A major concern is that this tragic event will derail the important and needed G-8 Summit. The AP wire writes a great article that you can see here. My hope is that the G-8 Summit continues and I hope that Blair is able to get back to it in order to talk about global warming, trade issues, and African Aid packages.

Driving to work today and hearing Blair speak was moving and I send my thoughts and prayers to Great Britain. I will post crucial information as it comes out all day.
