Like many people I’ve been watching a lot of the coverage of the devastation in the gulf region. But because of what newscasters are now calling The Blame Game, it seems that emotions are polarized, with feelings of sympathy, sadness and hope on one end and those of anger and frustration on the other. I don’t know about you, but I find it unfortunate that the beautiful spirit of people helping people is being constantly challenged by the forces of politics and small-mindedness.
Let me watch and hear of the life stories that pour from this region. Like many in the world, I want to mourn the loss of life and sympathize with the victims of such devastation. Mine is more than simply an interest in an event of great magnitude; it is a desire to feel and wrestle with the emotions of loss and hope.
Day 6 Guide
Don’t let the direction of network news rob you of your senses of loss and sadness for the people in this region. Hold on to the emotions that give you pause and allow you to shed a tear.
