I'm sorry to hear about your respective sad news and bad experiences, but if a family has saved for a year to scrape together a holiday and has it pulled from under them through no fault of their own, I'd say that's reasonable grounds to get hacked off. I wouldn't like to explain that to my kids.
There is no award for "my crap experience is worse than yours".
Perspective - try seeing it from the other person's. Of course divorce and illness are far more serious and have greater repercussions, but that's no reason to point the finger or start slagging them off as they aren't having it as bad as you all are.
