It's SICKENING that people who say LAUGHING is part of shock and how everyone reacts differently. This means half of the world is INHUMANE. You are
INHUMAN IF YOU LAUGH AFTER YOUR DAUGHTER DIED, WHETHER OR NOT YOU ARE IN FRONT OF A DAMN CAMERA OK???
Why are you INHUMANE if you can laugh within hours or days after a loved one died (especially dying like Emilie Parker).. because you did not allow
your HUMAN EMOTIONS TO COME THROUGH AND GRIEVE CORRECTLY. You people who talk about "laughing is not uncommon", obviously have some type of BLOCKAGE
in your emotions or brain that block the REAL HUMAN EMOTION to set it, because THIS IS NOT NORMAL.

There is no such thing as grieving "correctly". heaping shame on a person for not feeling grief in a certain way is possibly the most disgusting thing
you could do. People feel enough of it(guilt) without being considered sick in the head. Many people beat themselves up and lose their sense of self
worth when they fail to be able to grieve as they think they should do. How humane of you to vilify and dehumanise these people!!!!!!
It is perfectly normal to laugh while in the process of grieving. Not only is it normal, it's much healthier to be able to experience that full range
of human emotions while in the grieving process. The ability to laugh, the ability to enjoy something, a joke, a thrilling novel, an epic song, these
are as human as it gets. To belittle people for expressing these things in time of grieving is idiotic.
You keep talking about human emotions, about certain states being "INHUMANE", while obviously having no clue about either. People always have and
always will find ways to lighten situations, to find humour in the darkest of scenarios, that's an intricate part of the human resolve, for gods sake.
Emotions are NOT dichotomous. Humans have the capacity to experience a wide range of emotions, many at the same time.
When my uncle was laying up in a hospital bed, and I missed out on the chance to say goodbye because when I saw him I was too upset seeing him in the
state he was and left the ward in a flood of tears, and I shortly after laughed at a joke my dad told me, do you seriously think the fact I laughed
somehow invalidates the genuine upset I was feeling? or the fact my dad made a joke that he also wasn't upset?
When at the same relatives funeral a song was played, his favourite song, a very tongue in cheek song considering the circumstances, and most the
people there exploded with laughter, were those people inhumane, his loving relatives, his close friends, etc, all of them mentally ill, all of them
inhumane? His mother, my grandmother, she was inhumane for laughing too? That would be some achievement, wouldn't it, a chance gathering of 100
inhumane, mentally ill people!
You're 100% wrong to say that there's a correct way to grieve and that people who express other emotions in the process are inhumane. If you had any
emotion, any heart, you'd see that your ridiculous statements are offensive and upsetting to the billions of people in the world you've just judged to
be lesser humans. If anything is sickening it's your outrageous ramblings.
