I don't claim to be spiritual. I just say there is no good can come, of obsessing about negative events in the world. Most of us do not experience terrible things every day, and watching the news is just taking negative things on board that rarely effect us directly. Most of us live normal lives, most of the time. So why clutter our minds with tragedies that happen far away?
