19. You know...

they are human, too. I was a reporter for 15 years, and the times I had to talk to a grieving family were easily the worst part of the job and a big reason I started looking for a way out. It's traumatic to be a reporter in that situation. It hurts. I understand you're fed up, but that doesn't make the reporters who have to cover this thing insincere. The last time I had to talk to a grieving family, a family friend accosted me and yelled at me to leave. I didn't blame him, and I wasn't angry, but damn if I didn't cry, too. No one likes it when children needlessly die.
