It's good to know that Kathy Ireland is safe

Yesterday's deadly terrorist bombings in London were indeed tragic. But, there is one bright spot that I and all America can be thankful for: Kathy Ireland was in London at the time, saw the news reports on the telly, and is now back safe in France:
...This morning I woke up [in London] to one of my best friends in a complete panic. We were to have breakfast, but her teenage daughter was interning at the British Museum, and she had just heard of "the power surge" that had occurred...Once again: is the Huffington Post a satire site? Are they all having us on?
My immediate instinct was to get out of the city as soon as possible. But there was not a cab to be found, and the car services didn't have anything, so I got dropped of by Hammersmith Bridge thinking if all else failed I'd hitch to Gatwick... Tragedies like this bring the best out in people. All of a sudden you look at people differently. They are not trying to mug or make a pass at you. There was real pure human compassion and camaraderie wherever I was today. I got to Gatwick thinking that the airports would be closed, but I made an earlier flight to Toulouse and I'm so thankful to be here in the depth of the countryside surrounded by my horses, dogs and cats...
