Why?-Tribute to people of London

By ovi  
London has got "blasted". More than 50 people paid with their own life for someone else's madness.
I took this picture 1 month ago in one of the Central Line (London Underground) stations where today's atrocity has taken place.
These two people could have been those who lost their life in London.
This is for all those who'll never get back home.

I like the sense of the people standing firm whilst the moving train stands for life moving on as normal.

Under normal circumstances this would have been a well captured shot, but in light of events today I think that it symbolises the fact that we all stand together in solidarity and sympathy with those people unfortunate enough to have been hurt or killed.

Ovi this is just so heart wrenching, a symbolic image of a tragic event. K.

Thank very much everyone for your sensitive comments and Peter for the distinction given to my image.
Indeed what was happened yesterday shouldn't have happened or should never happen again.I'm still keeping up with every new related to this tragic event and I can't believe it.
The pictures published in the newspapers reveal the tragedy and at the same time a very sensitive aproach to the subject from all the photographers there.
I'm full of respect for all those that helped:Ambulance Service,Fire Dept.,Rescue Teams,Police,civilians,Press etc.
