The London Riots | Two steps back!
The London riots of last week were without a doubt a very low moment. The fact that several other cities piggy-backed onto these events was even lower! People lost their lives (some defending their streets) and homes in those riots. Our hearts go out to them.
However, there is one good thing in all these happenings! We witnessed communities coming together...to clean up the mess and rebuild! Adults and children alike responded to the call to help clean up because they cared. They wanted to be part of the SOLUTION. They showed that they actually valued their community. And we can learn a lot from them: not to write off every young person as a delinquent, misjudged member of society. To help them know where they fit in with the building efforts.
