Numbed Emotions

With the barrage of information from the media, from Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google, have we lost our ability to feel?

When we see on the news about the latest airplane crashes or school shootings, do we merely read it emotionlessly, or feel a pang of sadness, or a call to action for us to contribute to lessening such disasters?

Are we unable to feel raw emotions of sadness, happiness, anger, frustrations, joy that make us human anymore?
