Sam Sears, an associate professor at the University of Florida Health Science Center and a licensed clinical psychologist, says some people might be feeling what is known as "compassion fatigue."It is hard to hold a lot of compassion and empathy for long periods, and events such as the terrorist attacks - which fill people with sorrow and fears for their own safety - stretch the capacity to sympathize with others.
"Being empathetic to somebody else takes a lot of work.And, honestly, this is such an event that has evoked such empathy and such compassion that (it) is very difficult for people to feel comfortable," Sears says.
