Revelling in other’s misfortunes is just bad taste

Yesterday in the city of Boston, a terrorist attack happened. Innocent people lost their lives and many were injured. Of course, countless marathoners, passers-by, first responders helped the injured. They were brave, kind and showed the true Boston spirit. Today, there is news that Iran was hit by a strong earthquake. The comment section on the news site is filled with hate and vitriol. I do not know how people can celebrate when a region is hit by a natural calamity. Yes, Iran is seen as a threat by Western countries but people forget that the biggest victims of the regime are the Iranians themselves. As for the Boston attack, we do not know who the culprit is. Until the person(s) behind it are caught, can we stop speculating?
