As we all know, this week has been a complete piece of shit. From the bombings in Boston to the explosion in Texas to the defeated gun control legislation, it seems like everything came crashing down around us.

We have freshly renewed hope now that both suspects in Boston have been found (one was killed, the other arrested), but that doesn't mean we couldn't still use some advice on how to cope. Here to deliver that advice is Amy Poehler, who also happens to be a Boston native.

In a series called "Ask Amy," she takes questions from young people, and among them this time around someone asks what she should and should not be watching online. Poehler brings the conversation back to the tragedies of this week, and suggests being careful about taking in too many images, and being thoughtful about what those images that we do take in are.

"I wonder if we could give our eyes a break and maybe try to see things in a different way...by reading about them or talking about them or listening."
