To say that this is completely and utterly disrespectful, especially so close to the actual date of the tragedy, would be an understatement, although that doesn’t seem to be stopping people from doing it.

Some people huh? I’m not really sure why it’s desirable to get a selfie next to the site of a major disaster where a whole bunch of people lost their lives, but I suppose that’s what some people are doing these days. Does that really get you a lot of likes on social media? Do me a favour and leave it out, even if it does.
