It would be unwise to turn a blind eye to the world, especially when it is difficult to look at. It is important to be aware of what is going on around us. However, we should understand how we are affected by what we see and how much of it we can take. We have a responsibility to prevent ugliness in the world, but also to keep ourselves from becoming the ugliness we point at. The world gets away with horrendous acts because we ourselves have done things we may not be proud of. When we look out we should also remember to look in and not let the world become our own projections.
