The reason why I choosed this report is because I think it is important that you know what is happening in London, it is terrible. Also I think of the people that live there, because it’s horrible to be in a situation where you will never know if you will die in any moment with a knife in the street. As well as I think that I feel sorry for the people that had to die in this situation. A lot of people had already died, I am praying for this not to happen any more.
