The Dead We Mourn and the Dead We Don’t:
2,977 - Died and missing September 11, 2001
1,994 - Hurricane Katrina
c. 40,000 - US Traffic fatalities per year
That's not right to compare these three numbers!They are all tragic numbers, for sure. Family and friends mourning and full of sadness - all three of them. But 9/11 was caused by terrorists, by other human beings. How can you compare them with eachother? Most provocative of you.
