#AtoZChallenge - Perspectives: News
It did not take long for me to decide that I just couldn't handle it. Didn't need these feelings in my life and disrupting my days. I swore off all news, all together. Pete has long had to watch the local news away from me. Only recently, I have begun to sample some world news and such.
It's odd, and I don't entirely understand it. I can hear about a large scale catastrophe and handle that in stride. Stop to say a prayer for those affected and move on. The burning hurt and relentless concern only comes into play with individual losses and untimely deaths. I suppose that somehow I internalize it as if it happened to one of mine.
What about you, how much news do you watch? Do any stories you hear effect you on a deeply personal level?
