Purps you are such a lovely person. I know wat you mean, i don't usually admit it as my stepdad calls it emotional weakness but i spend hours,even wks after hearing of people and someones son'daughter taken from them.
On holiday i Cornwall a couple of yrs ago hubby and i were returning to our holiday cottage in the country and were stopped by police and told to turn back. I still remember it now, there was a lorry and a bike, ambulances and police cars, it was dark thankfully for us. We learnt the next day a young man on his motorbike had collided into a lorry and been killed instantly. Poor lad and his poor family (and lorry driver). I think there's alot to the saying live each day like its your last, i've determined lately to do just that and have loads of fun times for my boys for them to remember, instead of the usual bickering. x
