I never seek out the news. For me it was the day that Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett died that created in me some sort of Pavlovian response. TV, with all its commercials, and the news, with all its focus on the negative and sensationalism, simply make me want to vomit. Knowing and seeing all of that simply is not in my personal best interest. So, I have not turned on a TV since that summer day in 2009. In addition I've avoided radio news for the same reason, even my beloved NPR.
I don't want to propose that anyone else do this...it's totally a personal choice. But, just perhaps, this is a time to stop watching that screen and, instead, gaze into the eyes of our families and friends.
...just my two cents.
Thanks for "liking" my blog posts!
