We extend our deepest sympathy and prayers to victims and family involved in tragic events such as 9/11, shootings at elementary schools, the London bombings on 7/7. These random acts of violence are amongst us all and can be more frightening than natural disasters because we stop trusting in other people.
From these traumatising events some people may experience grief or anxiety that then can lead to depression even when not directly linked with the event. This was seen on a national level with the loss of Princess Diana, where the whole country experienced grief and loss. This in a way is natural because it reminds us that we are mortal and will also bring back the grief and feelings from personal losses that have been experienced. This depression can develop because the person hasn't gone through the full stages of grief from their own personal losses.
It is important to avoid watching the news or reading a newspaper first and last thing, best to do it in the middle of the day. Be mindful of what is around you and appreciate the small joys in life, that perfect cup of tea or a freshly made bed. Make sure that you do something that you enjoy once a day, it doesn't have to be huge, a luxurious bath or a walk in nature.
It is common to wonder why are there people out there you can do such things to innocent people and that is a very hard question to answer especially as you are looking at it from a rational perspective, often the perpetrators are not in a rational state of mind when these acts are committed. Another way of looking at this is to see the enormous acts of heroism or the acts of kindness that are generated at the same time these atrocities are executed, this shows us that there are also wonderful, kind human beings out there too who will even risk their own lives to help others.
