He just looks heartbroken. He and his boys are in my prayers.

127 people viewed this and not a single one could offer their thoughts and prayers to this family?

I don't mean to be rude, but you're actually bumping a thread about a husband coping with the death of his wife because you aren't satisfied with the response to it?

Well, I think a lot of people offered prayers when it first happened. The fact that it is also in the highlights might be a reason too.

Also, maybe change the title....sounds akward.

I just think we only offer prayers for someone's family immediately after the tragedy and fail to realize that grieving is a process.

Of course people still feel terrible for the family... but I don't personally think our prayers can make the tragedy any easier for him to deal with... (I mean, I'm atheist, though). Also, people probably still have him in their thoughts after watching that... it's not like they need to make it official by posting it on BroadwayWorld.

Is a Broadway message board really the appropriate venue for such displays of sympathy to a complete stranger?

adamgreer - Appropriate? I think so. Why not?

BobbyBubby - Mandatory response? Not so much.

Who wouldn't feel sympathetic to anyone dealing with a tragedy? But tragedies, such as this one, are often never fully healed. I, personally, don't feel a need to re-express my sympathies to the family. But I am glad I did express them earlier, after the news broke out. To the family and friends, it's a comfort to have that support from people -- even if they are "strangers."
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

I'm atheist so I don't know if me offering my prayers would do anything. But, still. Bobby you have to understand that you really can't force an act of good will upon someone. If they offer their prayers or their thoughts in this thread then that is great. But, you shouldn't create a situation where people are forced to do so.

That is hands down the most pretentious statement I've ever seen posted on BroadwayWorld.

Get a life, BobbyBubby! At least Natasha has a good reason not to.

I don't think Bobby meant bad by posting this or bumping the thread. Had this been posted a few days after Natasha's death I bet the reaction would have been very different.

I think this a thread we must respect and if we believe we can't do more with prayers, just let it be, but unfair to bash the OP and question his intentions IMHO.

It's not that I think that it is unfair. I think that it is wrong for the OP or anyone starting any thread to expect a particular response or reaction from the posters and to be upset when they don't get it.

It's not about whether or not we believe in the power of prayer or if we still feel compassion. Not all of us feel the need to comment on every thread that we read. And that is okay. Sometimes we don't know what to say and other times there is nothing left to be said.

Writing something on a message board doesn't make it so.
I think too many times people feel like they have to post on a thread like this or they look like unfeeling a-holes. It's not true. People all deal with things differently. It's unfair to get annoyed with people for not responding.

Not everything needs a response.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be enbered with your old nonsense. ~ Emerson
