Some people are just plain disgusting. Nobody is trying to fool anyone. The recitations will stop, and life will be normal again. Life will continue as we know it. But sometimes one's agenda should be kept separate from the simple courtesy of being fellow humans.

Taking a swipe at a man when he is down isn't gracious. And it isn't human. It says a lot about one's mindset. It says a lot about one's humanity. It says a lot about one's leadership qualities. It shows your level of maturity.

Taking a swipe at someone that is not here with us anymore is absolutely tasteless. What did she do to you?

Everyone is someone's mother, father, sibling, or friend. At the end of the day, this is what that matters, ties that bind us, love that moves us forward. Who the hell cares about politics at moments like this?

I'm not providing any links to the trigger of this post. But I think PPS regulars would know what I'm referring to.

When you are blogging, it isn't mere private thoughts anymore. There is a semblance of responsibility required. That's the price of being published in public. You are so myopic that your vision is only tunnelled towards seeing things in a narrow scope. You know what? Many of us feel the pain. Many of us have seen the diseases that ravages our loved ones. And that is why we are openly empathising. Please do not pollute our moments of reflection with non-sensical rethorics. If this is your brand of politics, it is clear you'll never win.

I may have disagreed with some people on policy matters. But never ever do I let things get personal. Take a leaf from our gentlemenly leaders.

Well said. There is something seriously lacking when you can't begin to sympathize, let alone emphatize, with a plight.

I guess being educated does not equate to being civilized and possessing common courtesy towards other fellow human beings.

resurrected, though I am not sure who you are referring to, I think I know what you are referring to, and I agree with your sentiments wholeheartedly. A person's conscience will prevail during moments like this.
