i ♥ london

I know bad, awful, sickening things happen daily, and to be honest, when all of a sudden I feel very strongly about something in particular that is going on in the world, I begin to feel guilty for not feeling so upset about every terrible, disgusting thing that happens every single day.  I'm sure we're all guilty of this tendency to tune out such things, mostly because thinking about all of it constantly would drive most to depression.  Maybe it's because I'm growing up (aka it's officially unacceptable to try to escape the harshness of reality), maybe it's because it was one of the first European cities I traveled to, or maybe it's because I'm 99.999% sure I'm studying abroad there my junior year, but I'm really upset about the riots taking place in London right now.  

It's hard, in the security of our comfortable lives, to not take something as simple and important as our safety for granted, but that's just what Londoners are lacking at the present moment.  The anxiety I feel for the people living there has got to be a million times magnified for them.  I hope and pray that these acts of violence and crime seize as soon as possible.  

There's a lot of messed up things happening in the world (I could name a few now, but that's for another post), but I will leave it at this:  Keep London in your thoughts, keep Humanity in your thoughts, and never forget that one of the best things you can do to stop (or at least prevent more of) such atrocity in the world is to practice kindness and compassion, and avoid violence at all costs.  Much love to all of you!  xoxo
