You sound guilty as you write this - and I don't see why you should feel guilty. Whose blog is this? *Yours* - *you* set the agenda, not your readers. The simple fact that you *can't* stop writing about it, thinking about it, examining it, tells me this - right now, you *need* to write, think and examine what happened, to all those souls... and, yes, to you.

In my opinion, you're not being self-indulgent - you're serving at least a triple benefit by doing as you are - 1) as "compassion fatigue" seems to be setting in, you're keeping a problem that hasn't disappeared on the agenda; 2) you're reminding people (me, if nobody else) that volunteering is *hard* - and that's why it needs to be done, and that's why everybody has to do what they can (as great or as little as that is) because it's simply not fair to leave the volunteering to those whose natural implication is to do their part, without thinking); and 3) recovering from volunteering can be incredibly hard - and people will help you with that, if you'll let them. Maybe all that I can do to help you is read (and respond to) what you write - but I can certainly do *that* - you've earned that right.

Be gentle on yourself.

That is so perfectly what I thought when reading this post that I won't write anything else.Except it doesn't sound like you to be worrying that you aren't pleasing your readers.

I was talking to you about B0b Dylan.Maybe the time has come around again for protest songs .. with poetical lyrics written by you.
