A sense of perspective?

without comments

A bomb goes off in Kabul in the midst of an increasingly bloody conflict that looks likely we can’t win.

A seminal US election moves into its closing days.
The country – the world – sinks deeper into global recession as governments scramble to prevent meltdown.
The bloody murder of a British student in Italy convicts one and sends two more to trial by jury.
‘Countless’ people fleeing armed militias in the Congo in what could lead to a humanitarian ‘catastrophe‘.
And the entire news media is fixated by two ego driven presenters who acted in a grotesque and deeply unpleasant way towards an innocent grandfather.
A sense of perspective?
