The Attack on Parliament was an Attack on us all

My heart goes out to all affected by this afternoon's terrorist attack in London. Tonight, we shall pray for the injured and all the relatives of those affected. 
Parliament, at first glance, is a poor choice of target. It probably has a higher proportion of armed police than anywhere else in the country. It has the best paid and best trained security forces, as well as being close-by the place wherein the nation's intelligence services are headquartered. So why attack it?
In Westminster Palace sits a representative of every single citizen of this nation. It is a symbol of our freedom, our democracy, our history and identity. By attacking our Parliament, this man attacked each one of us.
May God protect our land and confound our enemies.
