Want to know the quickest way to depression? Leave CNN on all day. I guarantee the non stop war coverage will leave you unable to deal with life.
You see, the thing is, we have 24 hour news coverage, but our minds were never designed to handle non-stop war coverage. We can be concerned for our soldiers and be informed about what is going on and why, without hving to watch all the time. It’s OK, and healthy, to turn off the war coverage and go do something else. Preferably something fun, that you enjoy.
If it makes you feel selfish and guilty, just remember, the soldiers are fighting to give Iraqi’s the same rights that you and I enjoy in a free country. The biggest of those rights being the right to live, and enjoy, your own lives.
