Tube worker pens inspiring white board message at Finsbury Park station in wake of attack

The terrorist attack outside a mosque in London’s Finsbury Park is yet another sickening example of violence directed toward innocent people.

It is the latest in a string of similar incidents to affect the UK, beginning with the attack in Westminster on 22 March and followed by the bomb at Manchester Arena on 22 May and the London Bridge attack on 7 June. In addition, of course, there was the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower in London on 14 June, with the death toll rising by the day.

There have been attacks and tragic events on the UK mainland before, but never in recent memory has it seemed like such a constant and relentless sequence of devastating events – and, as such, it can be very hard to remain positive.

However, events such as the Manchester One Love concert and The Great Get Together, inspired by the late Jo Cox and which took place only this weekend, highlight what great and positive things can be achieved when people stick together and celebrate. Cox’s message that ‘We have more in common than that which divides us’ is undoubtedly true, and must be remembered.

And another timely message was posted at Finsbury Park tube station this morning by an unnamed worker. While these messages often go viral and turn out to either be fake, or trite – or both – this one is very real, and hits the nail on the head nicely.

It reads: “Tough times don’t last / Tough people do / Stick together / All of us.”

Hats off to the guy who chose to write this, and let’s all do our best to remember it, as we also remember those who have lost their lives over the past few months.
