Is life of all children equal?

*Last week twenty children were killed in USA. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-20730717
*A couple of days ago 10 young girls died because of a landmine when they were collecting wood. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-20752337
*'Did We Just Kill A Kid?' — Six Words That Ended A US Drone Pilot's Career. http://www.businessinsider.com/did-we-just-kill-a-kid-nicola-abe-der-spiegel-brandon-bryant-2012-12
And NO I am not here to whine how media isn't giving same 'coverage' to death of these children (Which wouldn't make any difference to parents' pain). Its just these three events kinda triggered this question in my mind: 'Is life of all children really equal?'
And I don't care whether it is some Nut-job, Soviet Union, Taliban or US Army who kill them I just want to know: Is life of some 'less' important?
(Please do not make this thread into a political debate)

    Dec 19 2012: All life is equal. I wish all of these deaths received the same amount of coverage here in the U.S.

    Whoever controls the media controls the mind : / .
