7. I often think of that
There is a hurricane, a flood, tornado or earthquake. We see the news and watch and care. Terrible. Sad. Then the storm is over, the news moves on and we watch other things.

But for people in it the newsworthy event ending was just the start of the long travail, not the end of it.

I do think about them, but I think of it a couple minutes at a time and then go on and do what my standing home, working electricity and so on allow me to do.

People in Iran sleep unsheltered as it snows and I send a little money and a little prayer and care but then I turn on the TV and have a snack.

That really is strange but true
