Be wary of those who are more concerned about the expression of your pain than they are the condition of your suffering.
– Dr. Heber Brown III

I can’t possibly begin to comment on what is happening up the road in Baltimore, because I can’t possibly claim to have lived a single day in the life of those whose voices are so hoarse and hearts are so broken that they feel only through violent action can they make themselves heard.

This has happened before, and it will happen again.  Something needs to change.  But we can’t take that first step until we try a little harder to understand each other.

For now, I’ll be practicing empathy, and I’ll remember the fallen.

Peace be with you.
