Hmm... well to me, the lives are not of less importance in general.
However, the American children are more important to me, simply because they are fellow citizens, and their deaths occured within the United States -
which shows this can happen to more and more Americans if not properly addressed. The next time, maybe it is one of my nieces or nephews, brothers or
sisters, or even myself. So yes, seeing this happen in America, to these victims in particular, does make me care more for their loss of life than I
would deaths resulting from tragedy in a different country that I have little/no information to develop an opinion with.
While I do not value an adult's life any less than a child, I always hate to see children die. I think I feel that way because the children are still
innocent and have yet to experience a full life... not to mention the grief put on the families of these children.
Maybe it's becuase I have more in common with the United States victims.... not really sure... indoctrination maybe?...
