Say a little prayer

March 12, 2011

What I find most annoying any time a tragedy of massive proportion happens is all the empty condolences.

Everyone’s on Twitter saying their “thoughts and prayers” are with the Japanese people at this time. Thoughts and prayers is the current meaningless catchphrase. It is meaningless because usually the people who say that are people you’re pretty sure haven’t said a prayer since their Grade 12 math exam. Worse, it’s usually said by people who, at any other time, would be mocking people who do actually pray on a regular basis.

So please, if you don’t pray, don’t tell victims of tragedy that you are keeping them in your prayers.
