A Bad Weekend

From the loss of Amy Winehouse (albeit self-inflicted) to the terrible tragedy in Oslo it hasn't been a great weekend for the world. My heart goes out to all the families and friends affected by these tragedies and I'd like everyone to take a moment to think about all the emergency service personnel who will be dealing with an operation terrible in its scope and affect. The sheer horror of having to collect, examine, photograph, transport, and think about so many victims is just simply too horrible to contemplate. Yet, not only do they have to contemplate it, they have to do it.

From the ambulance drivers who will be tasked with the grim duty of collecting and transporting the bodies of the victims to the police officers who will have to ensure every technicality is observed so the perpetrator can be brought to justice. It's a tough job and I certainly don't envy you today.
