It's sad

The news about survivors are getting grimmer. I'm far from an optimist, but I like to be proven wrong on occasion.

By the NBC towers on Michigan Avenue. Perhaps I made a mistake by going: it reminded me that I can't muster much of an emotional response to it any more.

I feel really bad for all that's happened, and for those who have lost people who they cared for. I truly wish no one had felt it had to come to that. As for personal displays of emotion, I'm not gonna pretend to be as upset as someone living this tragedy firsthand would be. I would be cheapening their very real grief with my false sentiment.

I think the only time I felt bad enough about the whole thing to cry about it has come and gone, and prolongueing it just because everyone else feels that we shouldn't forget, and because others seem to be still upset about it is the wrong thing to do. This I know.
