Not everyone has empathy towards other people that is to see and feel things from another person's perspective but do not necessarily share those feelings, so you are not alone. Empathy is about understanding the emotions of another person, sadness, grief and connecting to that person an emotional level. Sympathy on the other hand are feelings of pity for the misfortunes of others and being supportive. For example being there for a friend in need.

Everyone responds differently to those types of situations and I think it's ok to not feel sad or bothered. My grandma asked me once if I missed her and I replied honestly. I was very young when I left my home country and I haven't seen her since. I don't know the lady and I'd be lying if I said I missed someone I barely knew and I would honestly not cry if she died. I think it's weirder to be expected to feel those things even by force. Just as long as you're not purposely hurting anyone you good bro.
