Okay, I admit to putting my head in the sand when it comes to current events. I don't want to be anywhere near a television if it's tuned to the local news. There is always some horrific story of a person who had 30 sick dogs and couldn't feed them, let alone provide adequate medical care. The animal and children stories lay me out. I'm a wimp.
Since I spend so much time online, it's impossible not to notice the headlines. Lately the headlines are scarier than anything Stephen King ever dreamt up. I read enough to keep myself semi-informed, but not enough to be immersed in the news of the day. It's so easy to become paralyzed by all the doom and gloom which surrounds us.
How much reality do you put on your plate each day?
