Why have we given up wearing something that signifies we are in mourning after losing a loved one?


When I was child I remember families wearing, usually black, for a period of time after someone they were close to died. Today this practice is no longer in vogue. My concern is that the period of mourning is no longer able to be identified by the general community which leaves those grieving heavily, at risk of being treated without sensitivity. I wonder why this practice has been abandoned?
