It's just simply that you're more compassionate and caring than most. You don't like what's going on, simple.
You can always read a good book, with some incense lit, and try to take a hot bath to smooth your nerves more. If all else fails, try meditation and a simply calming spell. Otherwise, disaster is natural for our world, and there just isn't much you could do about your sorrow.
We need more people like you in this world; those are the people that want to help and will help to make a difference.
~May you find guidance in the nature of Isis
