Reading about the terribly sad deaths of three children in Dublin can make even the most hardened among us feel almost overwhelmed as we try to make sense of it.

The reason why we feel compelled to read about such dark events is that our brains are problem-solving organs and we feel driven to try to understand these events so that we can try to make sure we will avoid similar happenings in our own lives.
