A Thought on Serial

I cannot imagine the lifetime of effort it took for this family to heal from the murder of Hae Min Lee, only to find the most painful time of their lives turn into a media sensation over a decade later. I enjoyed Serial. Its implications are powerful and complex. I can't believe it took me so long to stop and think of the pain this family must be going through. I suppose I can chalk it up to being so entertained, though I'm not sure that is enough.
