Re: Sayings that you hate now

To the list I would like to add "It's a miracle" especially as it is so often applied to situations it is not appropriate to use

For example a child (such as Cecelia Cichan or Ruben van Assouw) is the sole survivor of a plane crash in which a 100 or more people die and the child's survival is listed as a 'miracle'. This is despite the fact that the child loses their whole family and suffers serious injuries themselves.

There are very good and known reasons why children are more likely survive certain types of plane crashes than adults are. There is no miracle involved.
