Thanks for this essay, ya Ustaz Abu-Aardvark. You've reflected my experience - since becoming a parent I am much more viscerally affected by news and pictures of suffering children. I deeply appreciate you sharing your personal reactions with us. Blogs allow the real writer, and human, to emerge - no academic forum would have been right for such an essay.

i'll second that. thank you, you really touched me. so many times when i see the face of a soldier dead in iraq, when i see an image of palestinians trying to salvage something - anything - from his or her demolished home, really anything seems to be able to set me off these days to the point where you really have to try hard to keep from crying (or let it out) and it just hurts.
