Why don't some people think about the ways they present themselves and their ideologies to the world!?

It seems like the Turkish people have understood that It is not appropriate to look beaten to death, nor does it serve any good for the one whom they are mourning for! Perhaps other countries have to learn something from Europe too.
as Reuters says:
"Contrary of the other Muslim countries like Iran, Iraq or Pakistan, Turkey's Shi'ite Muslim minority beat their chests or show their emotions through other means without cutting or injuring themselves, and instead donate blood to the Red Crescent".
What would be wrong with commemorating Ashoura with preparing food, donating blood, and perhaps preying?

Nothing is wrong with it. All these nasty and Barbarian-looking activities are just for fooling people and make the ceremony "spicy", and then say whatever they want. Nobody thinks about the main reason of these celebrations.
