…do you really READ it?
It would have been easy for me to just share this heartwarming segment from the Today Show concerning the tragic shooting in Newtown on my Facebook page. But sometimes, especially during hard times, I feel it is easy to become overwhelmed by negative headlines, disconnected from the reality of the story and become Facebook robots, always perusing – never satisfied.
And maybe, because we ARE overwhelmed and we ARE consuming Facebook/social media posts a-million-miles-a-minute, we don’t give meaningful articles (the rare POSITIVE stories) the attention they deserve.
I don’t want to scan- I want to absorb.
Hence why, my friends, I decided to share this simple, moving piece, “Therapy dogs arrive in Newtown to help with grief” here, on my personal blog.
Does it make a difference to you? Are you more likely to read it here, now that I have made a meaningful, personal connection to it? Tell me.
How we consume our news, in this case tragic news, through social media fascinates me. I would love your thoughts, but most of all I would just love for you to watch this short clip of dogs making people smile during an unspeakable tragedy.

Thanks for reading (and for caring).
