A Hard Week – Boston and Other Things


The last week or so has been a hard week what with the Boston Marathon bombing and the Texas fertilizer plant explosion, followed by the manhunt - again in Boston - and then the flooding in the Midwest.  Some readers may wonder why I haven’t mentioned anything here.

For one thing, my posts were all scheduled a couple of weeks in advance since we have had company.  But, the main reason is that I expressed my thoughts on some of these situations at the time of the Sandy Hook shooting in Connecticut.  Rather than repeat myself, I will just give a link to that article and let you reapply it as it may fit.

Hard Questions:  What Is the "Right" Response to this Tragedy?


  1. This was a good article that you linked to....I'm right there with you on the media. I avoid the news like the plague. I heard about the Boston incident via FB. Once I knew what happened, I didn't seek out anymore info about it. I just don't think it's emotionally healthy to watch hours and hours of tragedies. It doesn't do anyone any good. And the media dramatizes it to milk it for all it's worth.

    1. Thanks. I'm glad you appreciated that. I know when I allow my head to be filled with that stuff (though, in some few situations it's unavoidable in public places) it doesn't help me! We were actually having a nice family dinner in a restaurant that was playing the Boston incident on their television when it happened. :-( You'd think they would've turned it off - in a restaurant. At least we were in another room and couldn't hear it, and most of us couldn't actually see it clearly either.
