What is it about a tragedy that draws us and grabs our attention like nothing else?
We happened to be in Corona today as the fire department was putting out a horrendous blaze. There were more fire trucks, police officers and emergency vehicles there than I have ever seen in one place before.
What made me start clicking away?
What made other people at the scene do the same?
Why do we allow a disaster to grab hold of us and not let go?
