After years of shielding us from the worst - where are the pix of dead Iraqis and Americans? Where are the real stories about the tsunami? - ever since the VietNam war the media has backed off from showing us the worst. But now they are. And some of those images will never go away. Some that I haven't even seen myself are stuck in my mind - Mary told me of a pregnant woman who died because help did not come in time. The woman and her child, together, dead. That image, even though I did not see it, is etched in my brain and I don't know if I can get it out. Along with countless others that I did see.

I'm grateful. I really am. I don't want things hidden from me. I want to feel, even when it is an immense pain.
