Right now, the Commander of the Canadian Military is on trial for the gruesome murder and 82 other counts of violence. Many people in my town (the neighbouring town of the Canadian Military Base where the fallen soldiers come) are close to the radio and TV or attending the trial, which actually ended a few days ago, with assureness Russ Williams will never get out of jail.
I find, for mysef, just like another Canadian case of Paul Bernardo, I had to protect my ears and eyes from details of this case, and read my own chosen books, engage in "up the spiral" conversations, and continue on with the (I must admit) stressful task of planning my son's Bar Mitzva.
It is an interesting thing to ponder. How do you spend your time when such details are all around you, everywhere you look - papers, TV's, people's stories and experiences...
What I created below is how I spent my time.
