Rice: Anniversary of the July 7 London Bombing

Anniversary of the July 7 London Bombing

Secretary Condoleezza Rice
Washington, DC
July 8, 2006

A year ago, fifty-two men and women in the United Kingdom lost their lives in an act of terror. They had started their day like many others with breakfast with their families, and preparations for work and school. While they left their homes like any other day on July 7, they did not return. Fifty-two families suddenly lost a wife, a husband, a parent, a child. On the anniversary of their death we again mourn their loss and extend our condolences to their families.

The United States shares with the people of the United Kingdom a deep bond of friendship that has stood the test of time. Their loss is our loss, their struggles are our struggles. While we mourn those who were killed last July 7, we will honor their memory by continuing to work together to defeat terrorism and ensure that all those who would do harm to the innocent are brought to justice.
