Tonightâ€™s “World News Tonight” closed with the following note from Peter Jennings, read by Charles Gibson:
| ||Peter Jennings spent more than 15 years working and living in London, a city he loves. He sends a note tonight to point out what he says is the obvious. And I’m quoting Peter:|
And then in typically gracious fashion Peter closes by writing:
| ||“We are all Londoners this week. And, once again, we are stronger for it. I recognize that eloquent, stoic determination never to give up, as Winston Churchill said during the War. I have been in London and other British cities when they’ve been attacked with unrestrained violence. The perpetrators have always been the losers.”|
| ||“On behalf of all my colleagues at ABC News who did such a terrific job covering this story, Goodnight.”|
The broadcast ended without its usual musical fanfare.
