I’m just going to be honest with you. Yesterday’s attack didn’t impact me as much as the one in Paris. I seem to have a bit of a shield up. I might be getting de-sensitized.

Don’t get me wrong, I am utterly horrified by the loss of life. I am sick to my stomach that ISIS has such a wide web of terror, but at the same time, I wasn’t glued to CNN and MSNBC  last night, while monitoring the New York Times on my computer. I wasn’t in my usual news coma. It may be that my system just can’t take in such hatred, when I believe there is so much good in the world.


And there is, there is so many good people out there. Let’s just remember that, as the images of an airport filled with bloody faces, and a subway of twisted metal bombard our brains. There is good.
