O.K. I did not know what this "tonglen" was about & found an site about it WOW pretty deep but sounds like a wonderful way to be dealing with what I have been feeling. This is the site I found.

From a macro viewpoint, if you take the horror, pain, disbelief,numbness,
unspeakable act......multiply it by THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE..........you have
been witness to DARFUR (a country thousands of miles away, but the pain and grief and suffering to the CHILDREN is the SAME......please take
this horrfic event as an OPPORTUNITY to SEE tha Emily's death was NOT
in vain.....be the change you wish to see in WORLD.....acknowledge and
act on CHILDREN SUFFERING regardless of the geographically location of
the child.

tonglen is a wonderful way to deal w your own pain about someone elses pain (if that makes sense). My dad is in his last stages of cancer and in some horrible pain; breathing in his pain and breathing out light and love helps me to help him - he is thousands of miles away...try it and you will feel your heart soften and if you do it long enough you come to the point where you widen the circle to everybody with the same kind of pain...
