I was reading a blog post about near misses and it made me realise I never actually said (in “public”) about my own.
the 7/7 tube bombings. That morning I was supposed to go to London, I’d get in to Kings Cross and then would have taken Victoria line….. See where I’m going?
id had a terrible night, and texted my friend saying I really couldn’t. I felt terrible about cancelling but felt better about it when she said she was about to tell me the same thing.
we both woke up a few hours later to the news. I went pale and actually started shaking. If all had gone to plan, I would have been on that train at that time.
I got a call from my friend who had realised the same thing and we sat sobbing on the phone to each other.
someone somewhere was watching over both of us that day.
