Horrible that she died so young, of breast cancer.
Many people die every day, in many ways. Sad, but true.
You obviously missed the bit about her being the first woman to be awarded the Fields medal and her relatively young age, Ann.
She really was a fine role model for young Iranian women. RIP. Breast cancer sucks.
Why Iran Broke Its Strict Hijab Rules for the 'Queen of Math'
Does it gives her a special right to live? Never heard of that.
No, of course not. But you can surely see the sadness associated with the death of a gifted young woman might be more than that of, say, the death of a Ted Bundy or a Charles Manson.
Your comment struck me as cold - reminded me of a quote attributed to Miscavige after the death of Lisa McPherson - I'm sure you know the one I mean.
You might appear cold by not showing compassion for all the other deaths. Focusing on tragic ones is up to you, but I see little interest in criticizing those who do not share your views on this.
It does not follow that showing compassion for the one implies lack of compassion for the other(s), Ann. Rather, it is like the quality of mercy - 'It droppeth like the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath'.
But sorrow is not the same thing as compassion, unless it is compassion for oneself, or for those who remain after the loss of the beloved.
You can mourn the passing of a hero without shitting on other deaths. This woman was a hero.
Well said my friend. Well said.
