Expectations are our guide into the future: Because things are this way, does not mean they should be that way.
You see, there is when we receive shocking news and there is when news seems to be normal. Get me on this, the extent to which news is shocking is not measured or determined by the extent of the damage or repair, but how expectant we were. For example, we no longer feel shocked to hear about homosexuals, we do not dream about a man we saw shoot a bullet into his fellow's chest, we do not get surprised when a lover buys an expensive mansion for his mistress on her birthday. This is all because it is not that new, we expect it, our minds are used to it and so it is 'normal'. However, this does not necessarily mean that there is no damage or great repair. It simply means our conscience is rotten to the level of not sensing danger or our hearts are merry with love to extent of not feeling the burden of an expensive gift.
