When I hear of these events, I feel hollow inside. Sometimes the tears flow and won't stop and other times I just feel numb.
Maybe this is why I read the funnies everyday, to try to start the day with something to smile about. I listen to NPR and hear what is going on in the world, but is it necessary to feel all the bad things happening in this day and age. I find I am drawn to fantasy literature, walking my dogs, watching the cats, seeing a comedy. Doing things for others.
