    news about their family members, this is all very personal and a tragedy. I am glad that the world seems to be attempting to cooperate and there is much empathy out there.
        For the rest of us, or at least speaking for myself, I feel like the media is playing this like 'balloon boy'. But perhaps that's just on my mind because two weeks ago I randomly wondered what ever happened to him (so random that I didn't even go look it up on wiki) and then turned on the tv the next day to find an unexpected update on where is he now (which I didn't watch 'cause I found the whole thing offensive as a prank and didn't care to know about).
        Where are they? Will they be dead when we find them? The constant coverage is like a voyeuristic glee over a slow-motion accident. Yes, we care but whipping up worry that most of us don't need to carry is not good for us.
         I think for the rest of us not actively involved in searching, it seems like way past time to turn away until something real breaks through the speculation formerly known as news.

    We are all pupils in the eyes of God.
