One of the downsides of having an empathic nature is that even TV shows and the trials and tribulations of their characters can leave me feeling for another's loss or pain.
Then there's Flight MH370, the Seattle mudslide, recent fires in NJ (Pt Pleasant motel & Edison elementary school--both supposedly caused by a discarded cigarette), and the "little pockets of pain" all over the world that devastate families and communities.
Sometimes being totally media aware can be draining.
All we can do is pray, offer strength and hope, and thank God for every moment we have a semblance of peace in our lives.
And turn off the flow of information rushing at us--at least a few seconds.
All this being said, I still don't believe Joss is really dead.
