I tried

as gently and respectfully as I could, to talk with some of the young people coming out of the shopping centre laden with Primark bags.

As they (mostly) blanked me, I called after them, 'This is for you, not me.'

I don't suppose they engage with the news and I think I might stop soon too.

In my exchanges with my Afghan neighbours we're all pretending the Taliban don't exist either.
