Yesterday's London bombings hits beloved Harry Potter location

I just realized something a few minutes ago: one of the bombs that went off yesterday in London was at Kings Cross Station. That's the very same train station with the legendary Platform 9 and Three-Quarters from which the Hogwarts Express leaves every year in the Harry Potter books. J.K. Rowling has said a few times that ever since her books came out that kids like to play around there a lot, trying to find the platform so they too can leave for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

It's not a "big" thing to notice about all of this, but I did just happen to catch that a short while ago.
