Live Free Like a Child

And all about him–in the rooms below, in the houses on each side and across the road, and behind in the Park Terraces and in the hundred other streets of that part of Marylebone, and the Westbourne Park district and St. Pancras, and westward and northward in Kilburn and St. John’s Wood and Hampstead, and eastward in Shoreditch and Highbury and Haggerston and Hoxton, and, indeed, through all the vastness of London from Ealing to East Ham–people were rubbing their eyes, and opening windows to stare out and ask aimless questions, dressing hastily as the first breath of the coming storm of Fear blew through the streets. It was the dawn of the great panic. London, which had gone to bed on Sunday night oblivious and inert, was awakened, in the small hours of Monday morning, to a vivid sense of danger.

Unable from his window to learn what was happening, my brother went down and out into the street, just as the sky between the parapets of the houses grew pink with the early dawn. The flying people on foot and in vehicles grew more numerous every moment. “Black Smoke!” he heard people crying, and again “Black Smoke!” The contagion of such a unanimous fear was inevitable.

  1. Howdy! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog like yours require a
    lot of work? I’m brand new to blogging but I do write in my journal
    on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will
    be able to share my experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any
    kind of recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
    Thankyou!

  2. Heya are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog
    world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you need any html coding expertise to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  3. Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I
    was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another
    platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good
    platform.
