I'm a professional fireman and paramedic in Washington, DC, and caught the tail end of this show while driving home from work this morning. Her comments on working to find an end to sorrow and grief hit home hard for me, along with her comments on the pressurized nature of our media and how it can cause hopelessness. My internal vocabulary has long been subject to attrition over the years due to avoidance through alcohol use, personal hardening, and a deep struggle with feeling as if I have failed the Buddhist ideals I was so in love with before seeing such a massive amount of suffering on such a regular basis. This show was well timed for me and reawakened me to vehicles for health and change that I had obscured for myself.
