you may feel bad about what's happening around us but this is part of life. we feel sadness and pain. we also feel happiness. this is in everything around us, with our attachments in this world. 

nothing is permanent. what is important is what we do now and understanding that it has an effect on everyone around us. each one of us should be responsible enough of our actions that we do not unduly burden the people around us with added sorrow and pain.

it is admittedly difficult. this is why we need to train our minds to focus and find calmness and inner peace.
