Good neighbours.

Just occasionally, you hear a story that reminds you that human society, even in a big city like London, can work. It is all the sweeter when it comes from a cynic whose trade exposes him to the sum of human misery in all its messy, blood-soaked horror - Reynolds from the London Ambulance Service on Random Acts of Reality.
This is what I see – I see communities working together and looking after each other, not because of government sponsored ‘multi-racial community days’ but because, quite simply, we all live together. The only thing is that you don’t hear about these small acts of humanity when so-called ‘community leaders’ are shouting about perceived unfairness.

And there's a message to those 'community leaders' - whatever their colour or ethnic origin. We're in this together, like it or not and you owe it to those you lead to try and find ways to make the best of it for the whole community.
