All over the world people are being killed and dreadful crimes are being committed and I usually pay no attention. I can’t cope with all of the world’s bad news so my mind has to find a way of ignoring most of it.
From time to time an item of news gets around my mind’s defences. That happened for me today when I read about the young girl who was stabbed and died on a no. 9 bus, a crime that seems close to home as I travel on buses a lot. So instead of just reading the account and going straight on to the next news item, I paused and thought about it. I feel so sad for the family and friends of Christina Edkins.
