Did you watch the video of Nick Berg’s murder? Tell me why or why not.

I did not watch. As I get older, I find it harder and harder to remain undisturbed by violence, even fictional violence. Perhaps the idea is to be disturbed, and to face that discomfort, or even horror. But I don’t need that. The truth is important, but my visceral reaction to to the truth less so. And, I get quite enough horror simply through reading the words that tell me about the video. Pictures might scar.
