There's NO Getting away from it

I live in Ct, 30miles away from it, and all you see/hear no matter where you go is about the tragedy...went to a restaurant today, and what is everyone talking about in there?? Same thing on the radio, tv, and every place a person goes.   There's no relief from the bad news, other than to stay home, and keep playing dvd, cd's or pandora...

Sorry. But, it's only natural.

It is a horrible tragedy that has affected all of us to some extent. It will take some time to heal and we humans always react by discussing, just talking and somehow trying to make sense...

I'm watching movies too. I don't live close but it makes me so sad to see it constantly. :-(

It will be a while before it blows over, but that's how it should be.

Exactly! OP, you're doing it too, without even realizing it, by bringing it up here.

Same here :( I live outside Danbury, it's everywhere here. But I get it. Some people deal with tragedy and grief and fear best by talking about it. It'll slowly die down. I don't think it's ever going to just go away, I mean, look at the town of Columbine: more than a decade later, there's hardly a persona live who was even semi-aware of the shooting at the time, who can dissociate the town from the massacre.

Newtown is not going to get over this for a long, long, long time.

Just lay low for a while and try not to expose yourself to it if it upsets you this much. Probably a good idea anyway, since I have a feeling that the next month or so is going to be a copycat free-for-all.
