I was finally starting to feel good again, yesterday morning. My back was just about back to normal and, even though work still sucks, my mood was lifting. Then I turned on the news…
I am so saddened by what happened in London yesterday. I can’t help but feel that these terrorist don’t really want change, they just want to destroy humanity. All I can really say is that I am so glad it didn’t happen the day before, when London was full of people celebrating the ICO decisions to hold the 2012 Olympics there.
It was difficult for me to be at work yesterday. Although I don’t know anyone directly affected, I can’t help but feel very sad and more then a little afraid. Hardly anyone else seems to be effected though. Customers were chatting and laughing and asking the price of meaningless trinkets while in the background, the radio news was reporting that over 700 people were injured. If there was ever I time I wanted out of retail, it was then.
I know that I shouldn’t let things like this get to me, but (unfortunately??) I am empathic by nature. I can’t help but feel the pain and sadness of all those people. I suppose some of my customers felt it to, and dealt with it the best they could. I just wonder how big a tragedy we need for everyone to take notice again. Are we become jaded? Is that good or bad?
