I've had many thoughts about the protests in Ferguson and throughout the country in response to the deaths of unarmed African-Americans. As you know, Episcopal Health Ministries has been active in promoting responses to violence; we agree with those who see violence as a public health issue.

This is surely not the only comment I'll have on these events, but I wanted to start with a look at what I think might be an underlying cause, as well as a possible long-term solution to these issues: Empathy (or the lack thereof).
