It’s important to stay current, but also to maintain some sense of normalcy

“Aside from the refreshing check-in with loved ones, the best thing about getting out of the city was the simple fact that I didn’t watch a single damn news report for the entire time. We’ve definitely reached a tipping point as far as 24-hr coverage is concerned, and the same things which were meant to help and inform are now inflicting their own form of damage. Patriotism is morphing into jingoism, pride to prejudice. People are losing sight of common sense, and simply allowing the media to soup them up for any kind of violence.”
