Perhaps. But why is this event any sadder or more tragic than any of the rest of the horrible things that happen to humans all across the globe… daily.
I wonder the same thing (briefly) fairly often about a lot of stuff. I’ve been wondering why this young woman’s story has been grabbing my attention, and I confess I don’t know.
Asking the question opens the door to a humongous psycho/philosophical universe of the human condition that we occasionally glance at uncomprehendingly, then go immediately back to sleep.
Some “consciousness” gurus have said that if we humans were able wake up fully on the spot, the shock of it would kill us.
“I dunno, man… maybe I’ll ask the Golden Teacher?”
I've wondered the same thing about my same reaction. My conclusion is, that it is easier to focus on the travails of one cute and innocent human than the mass of ugliness out there.

So I just re-read your linked article by Nolte. It’s fascinating in it’s twisted logic. And I thought conservatives were supposed to be the party of personal responsibility. And yet this guy Nolte is blaming someone else (libs) for the foolish inactions of his supposed constituents.
Mind boggling and who’s really buying his “logic?”
And where is this guy Laundrie anyway? Is he composting somewhere out in the boonies? Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
Thanks. The biochar is really delicious albeit a bit crunchy. Wash it down with lemonade and it cannot be beat.
Try powdering it with a mortar and pestle and adding it to your yoghurt - it's got that fine sandy texture that balances out the smooth sliminess of curdled milk, and you just know it's whitening your teeth!
