#2 maybe instead of putting a short and pointless comment in hopes of being first (which you weren't), you could show some sympathy for the family who lost their children. I hate people like you who only think of themselves and want to be first which really doesn't make you any cooler. asshole
I get that some people have their own issues and maybe the parents haven't moved on from their children's deaths, however, they shouldn't be dragging other people into it. I'd honestly be incredibly creeped out if someone I knew, whether it was family or not, invited me to a birthday party for someone that's been long dead.
25 - if they were 10 year old triplets who have been dead for over 9 years, they must've died before they even turned 1. Therefore, it is highly illogical that op could have been depressed because he "knew them well." And plus, if they were his siblings I'm sure he would've mentioned that.
It's not because the parents haven't moved on, that they have the right to force people to attend a creepy birthday party. I think it's pretty sad the parents can't let it go. Someone here said that they might gave that party to remember them, but let us be honest, the children died when they were one. The only thing you can remember is how cute and innocent they were, it's not like you can talk about their personalities, interests...
um.... not true. my brother died at 4 months old and he had his own personality. he was a very happy and enthusiastic baby. and for those who say that parents should be over it in 10 years... no one ever gets over losing their baby. also think about how these parents had their babies for a whole year before they passed. they would have grown and started walking and talking a little. how can you say they wouldn't have any personality. this isn't like a miscarriage. I'm pregnant wih my first at 26 weeks and is be deviatated I'd I lost my little man.... forever. just think about that.
#56 You're a fuckin idiot, it said the children have been dead for 9 years, they were 10. Obiviously they had 1 birthday..
I understood that the kids were 10 when then died, and they've been dead for over 9 years, totaling 19 years of existence.
idk how or why #30 gets thumbs ups n #60 gets thumbs downs it's clear that op says they were 10 year old triplets who died ten years ago....idk about you people, but once someone dies, u stop counting their age...so that means that they were ten when they died and it's been 9 yrs since they passed...read n digest the FML before running to conclusions and making stupid ass comments about how the triplets should be 1 coz simple math says 10-9= 1
but to keep celebrating birthday parties leads one to believe they are still counting... if it were a death-day/remembrance party then yes, stop counting if they are dead, but not a birthday party. the way its worded could go either way though, imo. I find this very sad that the parents are still having such a hard time. I know it is truly horrible and don't expect them to ever get over it, but inviting people to a birthday party is much...
It said op was going to a birthday party to celebrate their 10th birthday, meaning that if they were alive they would be turning 10. They been dead for 9 years, so they died when they were 1. I don't understand how you got 19 if op clearly states she going to a birthday party for "10" year old triplets.
one of my best friends died of cancer a couple years ago and we still celebrate her birthday. it's not like a huge birthday party but it's just kinda a way to remember her. I see where the parents would be coming from but a huge party isn't the way to go about it though.
on my birthday I get a birthday card that is "signed" by my dead cousin. she's been dead for like 4 years or something. Maybe I'm just an asshole, but come on move on. feel sorrow and find someone new to fill the whole in your life that was taken from you. I still find it surprising that the thing that happens to everyone of us is still hated and people are still scare of it. I don't want to die, but I don't fear it. I will see my family and be with god.
you're so disrespectful.
@65 normal people get annoyed by being forced to go to any birth/death anniversary. the word forced was used for a reason here, because not everyone believes that this should be an event others attend. if you want to have your own private get together then fine, but if someone is being made to go then i can completely understand why theyd be annoyed enough to post about it.
my friends parents invite us all over for their daughters birthday to hang out and remember her, when she died 7 years ago, they do it every year.
While it is sweet to do stuff like that for someone you've lost some people don't handle anything dealing with death well. I'm guessing the OP is one of those people, especially if it's for someone they feel they barely knew. They probably are the type of person to try to move on and not think about it because it upsets or unnerves them.
