Londoner Finds Heartbreaking Note From Muslim Teenager After Deadly Westminster Attack

By Mark Pygas

Two weeks ago, five people died, including the attacker, and at least 50 people were injured when a car mounted the pavement near the Houses of Parliament in London. The attacker, Khalid Masood, was a British citizen who converted to Islam while spending time in Saudi Arabia. After running over pedestrians in his car, Masood stabbed and killed a police officer before being shot. 

But two weeks after the deadly attack, London is doing what it does best and getting on with life. Reddit user crlxzzz was on their way to work recently when he spotted a few scrolled up pieces of paper on the seat next to him. As it turns out, it was a letter written by an anonymous 14-year-old Muslim, and it makes for quite the read. A transcript is available below.
