We pray for Paris! – Jill Raiguel, MFT
My heart and prayers go out to the people of Paris, especially to the victims, their families and the first responders. As I sit in prayer and meditation this morning, I know millions are sending light and prayers. The media coverage gives us a chance to participate in our world as a community pulling together to help heal.
But, with a non-stop, super-saturated TV news, we can get overwhelmed and sucked in to the Paris trauma. As I wrote about a couple of days ago, some of us can even get vicarious or secondary trauma. So, if you find yourself glued to the tube, starting to dream about this tragedy, or having fears about it, STOP! Do something fun. Watch a comedy. Read a magazine with nature pictures. Take good care of yourself, you are your most precious resource.
