reacting to bad news
How do we react to bad news? When we hear something we don't want to hear?

I just got an email about the death of a student at my university. I didn't know her personally but I have friends that did. She died more or less overnight, of a virus. Taken so quickly, she was studying abroad just like I was a year ago. The speed and her young age make us stop and consider life and death. Life is so random, so fleeting, a death like this makes all the banality of life seem pointless and a waste of what little time we are given on this earth. 

Her facebook profile shows that she was still posting pictures a week ago, complaning about exams and living. Now her wall is filling up with condolences. Her profile that she coloured with her life in an instant becomes a memorial.
