We're Not Afraid!

As he was evacuated from a King's Cross underground train after the recent bombing, Adam Stacey sent a photo by cell phone to his friend Alfie Dennen, a web designer in London. When Dennen posted the photo on his blog and began to get a flood of reactions from other friends, he was inspired to set up a new web site to send a defiant message to the terrorists: "We're not afraid."

Within two hours, the web site was operating. The site has over 2200 photos from all around the world, many with the text "We're not afraid" in the picture or added to it. And they have raised nearly $2000 for the Red Cross London Bomb Relief fund.

In the middle of Gallery 33 on the web site, one photo sent the message without need for words:

It reminded me of the Psalmist's words:
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
(Psalm 23:4)
What a comfort! -- for those for whom The Lord is their shepherd.
