How to react to human tragedy that does not involve us directly?

So I always have this dilemma of how to react to horrible events that happen to other people, not directly connected to me. Typically I choose respectful silence, but that might be confused with ignorance or lack of care. On the other hand, overreaction is not desired, which might lead to or be perceived as phony or even trivial, attention seeking or plainly silly. I was wondering whether we could establish some ground for appropriate reaction for various events.
