Please let them be.

Please allow them to be with their families.

Please let them heal.

Please let them recover and reenter.

Please let them start the long healing process without the media's needs coming first.

Please hope that they get the psychological and spiritual help they need.

Please don't try to take their pictures.

Please keep your distance and encourage your viewers and readers to keep theirs.

Please let them speak only if and when they want to.

Please focus on the joy and not the horror.

Please. Please. Please. Please. Please. Please.

Please. Please. Please.
