On the news a saw a story about a traffic accident where 2 young children were killed when thier mother stuck a parked big-rig. The next day I leanred that this woman was a former co-worker of my wife's. These children were only 4 and 8 years old. I've met this women, even seen the kids before, but it's been almost 2 years and I really didnt know them that well. Why am I so distraught over this? I mean its always sad to hear about a tragedy regarding a child, but its been a week and I can barely think about anything else. Its almost like I'm obsessed with it and I can barely function. I know it will get better with time, but is this normal?
