I love London

I was seventeen when I fell in love with a wonderful city. It was London, the swinging London of the 1960ies.  I experienced a cosmopolitan and tolerant city. Many things have changed since then, but still it is. London had to endure a lot of terror incidents during the last decades,  attacks from IRA and attacks related to the Middle East.  I appreciate that neither all Muslims nor all Catholics were or are under general condemnation in this city.  

After the recent terror attack I express my solidarity with this city using similar words as President John F Kennedy did in Berlin 1962, he said “ Ich bin ein Berliner “

Today I say : I am a Londoner
