I'm sorry but you're overreacting to a comment that was only expressing gratitude for the life they have while giving condolences to those whose lives just got a big dose of tragedy.
There was no malice, no arrogance. Maybe better words could've been chosen, that's about it. All I have to say about that, you clearly look into comments in a different way.
Again, the comment I responded to was not just expressing gratitude and empathy, but also taking this tragedy as an opportunity to specifically say that in Canada "crazy stuff like this doesnt happen," implying that Canada is somehow immune from such tragedies despite all of the horrible things that do happen here AND the fact that Richard Fadden, head of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, in just February of this year
said Canada has been specifically mentioned as a potential target by al-Qaeda affiliate groups. So it's only luck that it hasn't happened here. How horrible would it be if something, heaven forbid, did happen here to hear other people's first response to be, "Glad I don't live there. Nothing that horrible ever happens here"?
So, accuse me of overreacting simply because my response to someone else's comments differed from your own reaction if you want. Then go look in the mirror.
