Macabre People

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?

This would probably make a good advertisement for Poland Springs Water. The poor fireman were so uncomfortable in the heat.
