Handling Disturbing News

Today my country experienced the outrage of a 2-year-old baby brutally murdered by his mother and stepfather and how they were so close to getting away with their crime. Thankfully they were caught and thrown in jail.

I feel very grieved by this news, and I want to be upset with this news; however, I don’t know how to handle this and turn it into a productive emotion or feel the shock before making it productive.

I feel driven to take action towards protecting children, but I want to make sure that I am taking action from the right place and the right emotions. Can you enlighten me on this and what resource I can use to learn to navigate such things?
