The news is depressing😔

It's unrealistic to expect only good news. But it wouldn't hurt to have fewer massacres and cases of senseless gun violence, or maybe even just a little less impunity. 

It's the futility of the furore surrounding any one event that really leaves me feeling helpless and useless as a sentient occupant of this planet. There's absolutely nothing I can do about that Kenyan lawyer who lost his life for defending his client in a case against police injustice. Oh and his client was killed too. Shame on him for seeking justice(?) There's not a single thing I can do to comfort the families that lost loved ones in Baghdad during an evening of celebration that ended in zealous murder. 

Absolutely nothing. Nothing. The best I can do is yell into the abyss that is the Internet. So very helpful for exactly nobody.
