Boston Marathon a Tragedy

I’ve been seeing some really rude, ignorant and disgraceful things being said about the Boston Marathon and honestly, it breaks my heart.

People died. Children died. Almost 200 injured and the numbers are still climbing. People have gone missing in all of the commotion. Nobody knows where they are. Their families don’t know if they are dead or alive, lest we forget about the families of those who did die or are currently in critical condition.

We as Canadians are lucky enough that we don’t experience this sort of terror and devastation often. Most of us only see it in a monotonous news report mixed in with unrelated local stories. But just because it didn’t affect us doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

This is coming from somebody who spent all day and night on the phone with people from Boston, watching live videos and is still doing my best effort to provide those affected with help and information regarding the situation.

    I understand where you’re coming from, but its a generalisation to say that Canadians don’t understand tragedy. Some Canadians don’t, but some Americans most lucky don’t as well.

    I think maybe the issue is that it’s easy to become desensitised to it. There are so many horrible things happening in America constantly that eventually some people begin to tune it out. I’m not saying that’s right or wrong, but it’s a fact.

      You know, I agree with you completely. This was originally a Facebook post directed to my Facebook friends. Afterwards, I wanted to copy and paste it here but I couldn’t think of a title. This was the first one that came to mind.
      I’ve been thinking of an alternate title that would suit.
      Thanks for your input!
