As much as we all want to stay up to the minute on the Boston media coverage, doing so can take a toll on the soul.
Amy Poehler, a Newton, Mass., native and Boston College alum, posted a candid video on her Smart Girls channel Friday, advising a troubled teenager on how to take in the troubling images being shown over and over.
"What should we be looking at and watching these days?" the Parks and Recreation star asked. "Because, in light of recent events, I've—and I'm sure you have—and the rest of the world, if not America, have been looking at photographs that have been really hard to take. I've been thinking about what these images do to our brains and to our heart and how we should look at them, and when we should look at them."
