I keep an eye on the news to find out if a new war has started, and when I find out a new war has started, I basically don't want to know anything about it.

I don't want to know the surface reasons, the mid-level reasons, and the deep reasons for newly dead children now.

To know more about a child killed would be good--to know the child's characteristic movements, the games played. To know how the child would explain something of great interest, eyes shining. To have the child be not dead but alive and imagining, that would be good.
