Unlikely picture from London attack becomes ‘symbol of resilience’

What better symbol of western strength and resilience than a pint of beer?

After a photo of a crowd of people fleeing the terror attacks on the London Bridge last week surfaced featuring a man clinging to his pint of beer, emboldened onlookers have used it as moral ammo against ISIS.

For others, it was needed comic relief after a dark night.

This man paid London prices for a pint. He was not going to let the #LondonAttacks stop him from enjoying it.

And after what has been one of the gloomier months in British history, it was nice to see something seemingly small, a man running with his beer, turn into a symbol that helps thwart the vile fallout of terrorism.
