You may or may not have heard the news, but if you live in the Philadelphia/New Jersey/New York area, you probably have. There was a major car accident that was a few blocks away from my house and was in my hometown of Freehold. It subsequently killed 4 people. If you wish to pay condolences on my post here, feel free to do so.

        Look, there were 3 teenage kids from the high school who were killed and an old lady was killed in the accident as well. I was also afraid that my best friend was hurt. It also left my whole town mourning so there you go!

        Oddly enough, some kids from my school knew the people who were killed in the accident. The whole thing was in the news just a week after the metorite crashed down here in Freehold, which also had mas media coverage as well.

            I think you've misinterpreted SHNAG's tone. They were obviously attempting to give their condolances, even though a car crash isn't exactly big news in this day and age. Sorry, yeah, sad....didn't know any of them. I've got better things to do with my time than grieve over four people that I didn't know from a place I've never been. At least SHNAG showed some compassion....you're not going to get that out of me. :D

                I don't want to sound insensitive, but I live in a town of a quarter mill and this happens quite a bit. We lost 30 people in a tornado last year, with 6 or 7 of them children.

                Hell my high school lost a person to a car wreck a year. You're in a major metro area, I guess I just don't get the call for condolences.

                  I've got to agree with this. I'm not going to get upset over four people I have never met, and would never have met, dying in something as common as an automobile accident.

                  I mean, the global death rate is somewhere around 140,000 people a DAY. Children starve to death all over the world, doesn't really bother me.

                    Edy's spot-on.
                    I think what we're saying is, yeah, it's tragic...we just don't want to expend the energy required to worry about every life on Earth.

                            Well in my area today a plane crashed killing two pilots. Sad, but meh... that's what to be expected while flying aircraft.
                            Reminiscing hurts my brain.
