I just wanted to post a quick note as I attempt to go about my normal day here in London. All is OK in my part of London at the moment, and hopefully will stay that way. The London riots are unsettling because they are so spread out across London, so though things are OK where I am but I can hear the sirens and see a helicopter hovering over a nearby neighbourhood. I don’t envy the decision makers today as they try to get control without sparking worse riots. London is a resilient city so hopefully this will be over soon, the clean up finished, and the damage done repaired. I believe the good of Londoners will outweigh those few who are making life difficult for many at the moment, but it is heartbreaking to watch.
