Tragedy

Some tragedies you read about strike home. They strike home because the people involved remind you of your own loved ones and you feel deeply for those hurt and you also want to know how to defend yourself from such an event.

Tragedy reminds us of our vulnerability as people. Tragedy scares us and makes us sad.

We need to pay attention to tragedies that call our attention to find the meaning and develop greater empathy and compassion.

One way to face tragedies that call us, but are distant from our own life, is to perform an extra act of kindness or care--something within our grasp to impact the world with love.
