Crying and Grief

What the public often forgets is that the people who are berieved think of nothing else 24/7 until they begin to heal, if ever.

Meanwhile, those of us who just heard about it in the news, have mostly gone about our business with only occasional thoughts about a tragedy, and when we're reminded of it, it's still fresh.

It is folly to expect "swollen eyes" from people who are all cried out after intense grief, especially when they are attempting to get through it without falling apart.

I can't comment on the video, as I did not watch it, but crime scene photos aren't always easy to get.

What do you think?
