You can feel for the people of Paris and the people of Chicago too

You have the ability to have sympathy and empathy for more than one group of people at the same time. Over the last couple of days we have seen an outpouring of grief for the people of Paris. What happened Friday night is heartbreaking. The loss of life is devastating but today on Twitter a person drawing a distinction. The writer said 129 people die in Paris and the world cries, but there have bee 400 people who have died in Chicago this year. Who is crying? We have within us the ability to cry for both but we also have to look at them as two different situations. At this point we do not know the individuals who committed the Paris massacre. We know the group but not the particulars. The Chicago situation is different. We know who is doing the killing. In Chicago it is neighbor killing neighbor. People aren’t coming from another country killing the Chicagoans. This is home grown terror, and the people at home are the ones who have to address the situation.

      The very same thing can be said about the conditions in Chicago, the chickens have come home to roost. Both have been caused by left wing, liberal, big government policies which invariably produce moral and financial bankruptcy.
