Tributes and Tragedy

I wonder if families of people they have lost feel guilty when other families start trusts and campaigns and charities in the name of their own loved and lost ? I wonder if people that just want to grieve quietly and privately feel that they are in some way letting go of what they had too easily. I wonder if those same people are made to feel that they should have done something else, to have questioned more, pushed more. Or are these families that do move into charity and campaign doing it as much because they feel they have to ? Do they feel it is almost expected of them ? Why is all this so disproportionally moved toward the deaths of young people ? Is marking the passing of someone young so much more important than someone older ? Maybe as a society the concept of grieving has moved into some new area .. and this is as far from criticism as I could get and there is no right answer. Just thinking out loud.
