What they saw when they arrived on the scene was much different than what they expected, but a survey from the air told them it was a major traumatic event. The team worked an extremely long day, tending to the nearly 40 injured individuals. Their sacrifice is a true example of the resilience of the British People.
The National Health Services (NHS) Staff. Doctors, nurses, and medics from the nearby St. Thomas Hospital responded to the scene, and the administration called in extra manpower to help the injured and provide the extra medical care needed.
The entire staff went above and beyond to help those affected, and all of them displayed what it’s like to put Red Shoes culture into action. Theirs was truly a Red Shoes Moment.
The British people are resilient, and all over the country people posted signs, Tweeted, and showed their support not only for those injured and the first responders, but about themselves as well. "London is the greatest city in the world,” the Mayor’s office said. “We will never be cowed by terrorism. We stand together in the face of those who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life. We always have and we always will."
Lonnie Mayne: I’ve been a part of the British Citizens Awards for the last three years, and love to highlight those who truly stand out and do good in the world. I’ve walked through that gate, visited the House of Lords, and my heart went out to the British Citizens who put themselves out there for the good of others during these horrible events.
Red Shoes Moments are not about me or my company, but about the real people doing good in the world. It is an honor to stand with the British people and recognize a few of the many who did so much good on that day.
