Everyone must die one way or the other. Therefore, death by a car crash, terrorism, war , fire, or tsunami — what difference does it make?
Death by itself is not at all remarkable.
Only a remarkable story can make an ordinary death remarkable.
That is why when a shark kills a man in a circus show makes a better story of death than a man dying from colon cancer.
That is why you may mourn the death of 4 men dying for a celebrated cause some 70 years ago, but don't care much for 100 men dying in a fire only 70 hours prior.
To make deaths memorable, you need a memorable story.
It's never the number, rather the story that makes a death worth all the mourning–and that story can even be fake. It just needs to be cute, easy to digest, and often blame a convenient “other” in search of a villain.
And deaths that have a strong, known, living villain, will often struggle to find mourners.
