Photo op

So what’s wrong with the picture(s)?

Hey, Department of Tourism, I think we have a new tourist attraction: the hijacked bus from Monday’s hostage crisis. As you can see, people are flocking there, not to pay their respects to those who died that day, but to take a photo with their friends (complete with smiles).

It’s kinda like the Tiananmen Square, a site in China where hordes of protesters were killed. Though I don’t think they immediately made it into a tourist destination days after the said massacre…

Jeez, these people didn’t think about saying a quiet prayer or laying flowers on the site of the hostage crisis.

Just plain wrong.

    I actually haven’t found the courage to post these pictures on my blog because I am totally ashamed of what’s happening.

    It’s ok to take pictures but not to the extent of including yourself and posing as if you’re about to make it your profile pic or wall photo.

    Wrong. So very wrong.
    It’s a place where a tragic event happened and these people aren’t giving proper respect to the victims.
