Londoner, Alex Miles, says he is happy after getting outside his home today and avoid being injured or killed in a terrorist attack.
“I’m so happy I was able to get out of the house this morning and not get attacked by a crazy knife-wielding terrorist,” said the 25-year-old university student who’s been doing his Bachelor of Economics by correspondence for the past six months because he was too afraid to leave his home.
“After I heard Donald Trump say on the news that London is a hotbed of terrorism and that ordinary civilians like me are at risk of being killed by terrorist gangs roaming the streets, I was just too frightened to go out anywhere.”
Miles said that he finally mustered up the courage to go out on London’s walkways after hearing from his trusted friend that the streets are safe.
“I was very dubious at first because I could see terrorist attacks everywhere on the news and the internet.
“There were news websites saying we’d be overrun by a caliphate before being forced with life or death to live under Islamic law, and it was all just getting too scary,” he said.
“But with the support of my family and friends, I can finally step out the front door and see everything is so wonderful again. Even the sky has a lovely grey overcast.”
Miles said it was the perfect opportunity to get a photo of himself to share with his friends on Facebook who kept him company since he became housebound in June.
“I asked my mum to take a photo of me standing in front of London to show everyone: ‘Look! There’s actually no terrorist attacks here today!’”
Miles’ mother said she is relieved her son is out of the house and can begin to live a normal life again.
