This, Too, Shall Pass

I feel like this character from Watchmen - Dan Dreiberg, the second Nite Owl. The world has gone to hell as news and images from Gaza and what  has happened and what is happening concerning MH17 and the ongoing investigation with the attempt at recovery of the bodies.

Helpless and useless in the face of crisis. And yet, if our purpose at this moment is to do nothing - for most of us who can contribute nothing - then we will do nothing to the best of our abilities.

There is absolutely no need to make these impossible tasks for finding out what really happened and what can be done more difficult by throwing our wailing selves into the mix. Would it contribute anything positive to the unbelievable situations we are witnessing? If so, then Godspeed. If not, pause and reflect.

This, too, shall pass.
