Sad but true.

I always begin my classes with five minutes of chit-chat.  I ask the students how they are doing and what is on their minds.

Sunday afternoon, I had a student tell me his grandfather was ecstatic.

I asked the student why this was so.

He told me his grandfather was happy that a powerful earthquake had struck Japan.  A few other students then expressed this satisfaction as well.

I told them of the Australian English teachers who I had heard had gone missing.

it is very inhuman and immature for people to think this way. i am chinese myself and i am deeply saddened that our people can be so mean and heartless.
