Letter: Diana: memorial ideas, grief without tears, media manipulation

Sir: Many of the readers of The Independent appear to feel there is an undue amount of "frenzy" over the death of Diana, Princess of Wales. Whilst they have a valid point I think they have missed the real reason behind the mass mourning. Diana was a leader. She exemplified many of the characteristics of how to be a good human being - both in her compassion and focus on helping others. She was someone we could all identify with. She set an example for us all. In stopping for a few moments to think about Diana and what she represented, perhaps more of us may actually follow her example in what we do in our own lives.
