In light of all the atrocities that recently happened, and continue to occur all around the world, we want to focus again on empathy. What makes some people empathetic toward refugees, while others let fear overtake any instinct to help another human? Why did the Paris attacks get more attention than the bombings in Lebanon? We could go on and on with questions that often, do not have an answer. For now, here are a few posts from the around the Web. As always, we’d love to hear from you.

-Why a single victim is more powerful than an entire group

-When empathy is not enough

-When one act of violence overshadows another

-More on the empathy gap here

-Is the Internet an engine for empathy?
