Morning Shift: November 16, 2015

The story of the simultaneous terrorist attacks in Paris is still developing, three days after one of the deadliest attacks in France since World War Two. President Obama spoke at a news conference from the G20 Summit in Turkey Monday morning. Worldview's Jerome McDonnell and Slate's Joshua Keating provide analysis of the president's speech. Plus we check in with the head of Alliance Francaise de Chicago who was in Paris when the attacks occurred. And over the weekend, there were many gatherings to remember the 129 dead and hundreds wounded in the attacks, including a solidarity rally in Chicago in front of the French Consulate Sunday with many French expatriates in attendance. Then, not surprisingly, social media has played a huge role in expressions of support and empathy from people all over. A philosopher and author of a new book on empathy joins us with his thoughts on why empathy is an important human characteristic that needs more nurturing.
