If there is one type of person that is worse than the person that takes to social media to tell you how much they care about the victims of a tragedy it is the person that takes to social media to tell you that there is this whole other tragedy that no is paying attention to that needs fake sympathy too. So I don't appreciate the person that tried to shove the problems going on in Turkey in our faces when we are still pretending to mourn the attacks in Brussels. I get it, we fucked up. We should have been there to send our thoughts and prayers to Turkey. I really wish they had a big pretty tower that ever basic tourist has taken a picture in front of so we could have used their flag as a backdrop behind it and made it our FaceBook picture. That would have for sure gotten Turkey a little more support when they needed it the most. Unfortunately they don't, and that cost them the outpouring of super sincere tweets that would have definitely been able to comfort them during their time of need.
Let me say something else though, Turkey can't use the fact that they were attacked four times to prove that they are more deserving of attention than Brussels or Paris. At that point you just have to be better about protecting yourselves. You can't flood the market like this. Americans have short attention spans. Even if we had been attentive during the first attack, we would have long forgotten by the 4th attack. I'll let a girl cry on my shoulder once, but after the 4th time she better figure that shit out because she's starting to stain my shirts. You can't just photoshop yourself into our hearts, it has to come naturally. We like to get on social media soap boxes for good causes, but we don't like to be reminded of the other good causes we are ignoring while we are up there. Especially if those other good causes are super high maintenance. There's too much bad shit in the world to focus on one issue that is going to require that many posts.
