I made an ass out of myself in a thread, in what I agree with MikeB *should* have been well-meaning, and I'd like to apologize.
It is a firm belief of mine that "parental fear" and the thought of "what if it happened to me/mine?" is a huge factor behind the majority response that any parent would exhibit when seeing examples such as that, and I find it incredibly selfish and egoist, but it was incredibly selfish to indulge myself as well, as it definitely was not the time or place to bring it up. What should have been a thread that was for paying condolences became my soapbox to call out people on what I felt was "identifying with grief for all the wrong reasons", and I apologize whole-headtedly to the people directly involved, and the readers I knowingly offended.
I'm going to take a break from posting for a while, after seeing how long it took guilt to creep up on me.
