I admit, I really love many things about the internet, especially social media. For instance, I currently live hundreds of miles away from my family/friends and the places I grew up and social media allows me to keep them up to date on what's happening with our family and the newest pictures of the kids with just a few clicks of a button. Maybe I want to know the weather forecast? That's easy, it just involves opening the app on my phone. I can even control my satellite receiver for our TV from my smartphone. I have used technology to track all my pregnancies from the very first tests through the birth of our children and document them growing every single day and share it with everyone we know. These things are priceless to me.
However, this post isn't about all the things I love about technology, especially social media. It's about how some days it's all too much. Some days I scroll through my news feed on Facebook and I'm overwhelmed by the tragedy the World around me endures on a daily basis.
Today was one of those days.
