I'm going to link one of mine, which became a big post in the UK and US after the London bombings on 7/7 2005. I collected Londoners' quotes about the bombings, and it made the papers, and Snopes. I really wish I'd attributed them all to the LJers at the time, but I originally meant it to be for my flist of less than 100 people!

It's the one which showed me how great LJ is at bringing together hundreds of strangers, and how much international spirit there is on here.

OMG yes, I entirely second this suggestion. IIRC, many of us in the country spent more time refreshing your page than watching the news (though I also seem to recall having the news on on the TV behind me, as I suspect many did).

Also, your post reminded me that somewhere among these nominations should be london_hurts, where the Brit's took the piss out of the Americans for being such pussies about England getting bombed. Now that was a laugh an' half. ;)

ETA: Aaah yes, the post in london_hurts that explains it all.
