Something I've always considered. It's ratjer odd how socially (un)acceptable jokes and comments can be depending on how long after the events it's been. Maybe it's just an obvious fact? Maybe it's wrong that we judge how serious/tragic something is/was depending on how long ago they were? Maybe it's because diasters closer to NOW feel more...relatable? I'd like to know what you think. Cheers, J.J
EDIT: This more concerns National/International disasters opposed to family issues and the like.
