We can't begin to express to you how much we adore Amy Poehler, so it breaks our heart to see her so visibly upset like this!
But the normally very jovial Parks & Recreation comedienne is a both a Boston area native and graduated from Boston College, so it should come as no surprise that the heartwrenching drama surrounding the Boston Marathon bombing and the subsequent, incredibly violent 24 manhunt for the suspects would have a deeply profound affect on her.
Sadly, this is very clear in the latest "Ask Amy" video she posted on her "Smart Girls" YouTube channel this week.
Ch-ch-check out her very somber, yet thought-provoking discussion about the recent events, as well as the effects of being inundated with the violent, disturbing and deeply upsetting imagery, like what we've recently seen from the media (above).
We really have to commend her for taking her heartbreak over such a devastating and tragic event, and utilizing that pain to raise some very relevant questions about issues we think it's very much time for our society to address.
