It’s been a difficult time across many parts of the UK.  Stories of violence, looting and much worse.  Part of the shock is not only hearing of things close to home that we normally associate with countries far away, but also questioning the society we live in and fearing for our own safety and that of loved ones.

For any interested in some of the different theories behind looting and the riots, there is a good summary of articles here: http://bps-research-digest.blogspot.com/2011/08/riot-round-up.html.

However, they say there are 2 sides to every coin, and amongst the negativity, there have also been stories of wonderful acts of love and kindness in response to the riots.  One thing that caught this writer’s imagination was a movement on Facebook called Anti Riot – Operation Cup of Tea.  The idea? Encourage people to sit down at home, not riot, and enjoy a nice cup of tea.  Fans posted pictures of themselves drinking cups of tea as a show of support.

There’s something about the UK culture that can use humour to help cope with difficult times.  If you are struggling with any aspect of events, we’d encourage you to speak to someone about it.  Just exploring our feelings can help, whether it’ s a friend, relative or professional (e.g. a counsellor or psychologist).

Our thoughts are with those in the areas badly affected and we hope that the good things in human nature will emerge to carry us through.
