What has been your reaction to national tragedies since 9/11 (if not before then)?
For me, I recall becoming emotional (sad, mournful, angry, etc.) prior to and during 9/11. However, after 9/11 sunk in and changed my sense of security, I’ve become numb to national tragedies. If I’m watching the news and see something (such as the recent tragedy in Afghanistan), I think this is sad, but I feel numb. Sometimes I’ll have an emotional reaction if I talk about it with someone, though.
How has it been for you?
