Shrinking the World


The Internet, the television that beams everything, everywhere right into our living rooms, they bring it all so close. Thus when horror happens, I find myself poring over maps, looking for the hometowns of the folks I feel as if I know, comparing, measuring. How close are they?

Are they okay? With the world getting so darned small, we know people in the states where the news vans are all perched with the microphones crammed in the faces of the damaged, we know people, or feel like we know people, who live so near....

So morning finds me looking for posts telling me that people I will never meet have made it through the night...

Are you okay? I hope so...

I couldn't have expressed it better.

I've been wiping away tears for days..

We've stopped watching it for a while.

Hopalong Cassidy for a little respite from reality.
