I work for a Non Governmental Organisation, NGO, that tries to build peace in war torn areas. In 2 weeks I am going to a part of Africa that has suffered more than most other areas in the world. The media reports soldiers, tanks and guns but there are other forms of victimhood - particularly if you are a woman.
Thats part of the reason why I love Shepherd's Bush so much. For all its problems, and it has many, it is a world away from what most human beings call life. That's my perspective, and in an area as rich in diversity as W12 there must be so many others.
