This article delves into the stark contrasts and selective empathy that characterizes the global response to tragedies. From the heart-wrenching shootings in Uvalde and Columbine to the devastating terror attack in Moscow, the discourse reveals a pronounced disparity in how the world mourns and advocates.

Through examining these inconsistencies, the piece explores the implications of politicized grief and the call for a more universally compassionate approach to human suffering, irrespective of geopolitical narratives.
