Like shootings, or bombings, etc.
This shit happens like every two weeks. You turn on the news and there's a bomb going off at a concert or someone driving their car into a crowd of people. At first stories like this were so horrible and shocking. But now i'm just like. "whatever, whats new? "
Not that it isn't horrible. It is. it's just not a surprise.
Is it bad that i'm so desensitized to it?

No, it's understandable. like every minute of every day of every week something bad happens. It's easier to cope when the shock value is gone. The people that act like this is the only bad thing that has ever happened are stranger in my opinion. Do I think it's terrible? yes, and I want it to stop. But from a young age, I understood that this world is messed up.. It's not as if it just happened last week. But crying about it does nothing. either find a way to change it, help other people through it, or shut up.2

I'm not surprised by anything on the news these days. Frankly, I think it's always been like this we just haven't had the technology to hear about all the tragedies that happen.2
