I didn’t know about the school shooting in Florida until a co-worker mentioned it the next morning.
OK, that’s not entirely true. Before falling into bed the previous night, I did see something on social media about a shooting, but I didn’t click to read more. I brushed by it — perhaps partly because of a growing cultural insensitivity to shootings and tragedies, but probably largely because of my preoccupation with my own “hard” life.
And it took my ignorance the next morning for me to realize just how much I’m focused on me.
