Too soon? Disrespectful? No big deal?

Very disrespectful. The loss of 3 lives in no less tragic than the loss of 13.

I dont know I am kind of on the fence about it . Personally It does not bother me , but when you think of the family and friends who are affected by it then I can see why it might be insensitive and why they could get offended by it.

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe several of the Middle Easten tragedies mentioned are from 10+ years ago. Still, very tragic all around. Any time innocent people die, regardless of how many or wherever they are, it's unfortunate and unfair to the lives full of potential lost.



The last one, of the tweet, is horrific. That guy deserves to be taken off the air.

I don't find the second one to be bad.




The others I find disrespectful.

I think those people are assholes. Why should anyone have to minimize a tragedy. People died and if someone wants to pay their respects with a kind message then that is there right. There is no written rule book on how to handle tragedy. People lost family members and loved ones. Its fucking senseless no matter how any one looks at it and its scary. No one is saying one life is far more important over the other, just that this shouldn't happen.

I think it's fucking disgusting to minimize tragedies by comparing them to war and suffering in other countries.

That is so childish and petty.

Simply because there are horrible things going on in this fucked up world does not mean these people's deaths are not significant.

Then that may be the worst attempt at humor I've ever seen. Still thoroughly disgusted.
People WILL take that literally and take it out on the perfectly innocent Muslims/Arabs. Hate breeds hate, regardless of how his comment was meant.

I don't even understand why different situations are being compared. Of course everyone freaks out when there is an attack on our home turf. It hits home a lot harder and its worse when we don't know who or why.



In the end, all deaths should be mourned. No events should be compared, especially when they are very different situations.

Tragedy closer to home is closer to our hearts. When there are things like this happening in other countries, I'd bet those countries feel them more. Likewise, they probably don't give a second thought to the fact that a few people died in the US.



We recognize death more closely when it's more connected to us. I think comparing things like this are just insane.

The boondock saints one is funny. The others I don't care for too much. I agree that the boston bombing is more recognized here because it's closer to home for us, but a tragedy is a tragedy and neither should be compared as more important than the other!

The difference is one happened in a WAR ZONE & one did not. People die when there is war, isn't that kind of common sense?
