Anderson Cooper saving a boy in Haiti during a shooting. A slab of concrete was dropped of the boys head.

Anderson fucking Cooper, everyone. 
Some journalists like to be strictly observers. they don’t intervene, they don’t participate. they just document what they see, even if what they see is terrible. But the way I see it, journalists don’t exist in a vacuum. They are human beings, living and working in a very human environment. And that humanity is essential in relating to their stories. When you lose your humanity, you lose any kind of journalistic integrity you have left.

If you have suffered a tragedy and someone says, “you’re in my prayers” with sincerity, and you respond with some egotistical shit about being atheist you are an emotionally inept moron.

For real though…

I think this is another example of people being far too sensitive. Let’s say somebody experiences a death of a close relative and they’re an atheist. Regardless of whether people know you’re an atheist or not, you should be comforted by the fact that somebody is nice enough to care about you in their own way if they come up to you and say “you’re in my prayers”. To them, that’s the best thing they can give you because they don’t believe the same things as you and that’s not anybody’s fault. Accept it as an act of kindness. I had to do that last month when my great-grandfather died because I’m not religious at all, but lots of people I know are and they told me they would keep me in their prayers. To which I responded “I’m not really religious, but thank you” and moved along. It’s not that hard. They could have easily not said anything at all so I’ll take the kindness in whatever form it comes.

"Why can’t you just respond to grief and suffering the correct way? gah. It’s so inconsiderate to others"

How about we STOP prioritizing the the sentiment of the people who are trying (and failing) to comfort over the feelings and well being of the people who are ACTUALLY SUFFERING? 

If I am suffering, it isn’t my job to make sure that you feel good about comforting me, especially if you are doing a shit job at it.
