Comment on Inspiring or Scary?

In the same way we memorialize 9/11 or have holocaust museums, I think that although maybe disturbing it is extremely important to be reminded of what happens outside of our bubbles of everyday existence. I refuse to watch the news because it's commercial and I don't see much difference between KCAL 9 & your typical Fox Police Drama. But I feel that I should be responsible about keeping informed without being sucked into the human drama. Our past mistakes will hopefully lend insight to future problems, although I wonder how much we've learned. I'm surprised that after Rwanda, we still take minimal action with what is happening in Darfur.
