That people living in other cities are staging protests in sympathy with Baltimore is telling. Not just big cities like New York and Washington, D.C. but on Wednesday night, there was even a vigil staged in downtown Salisbury on the Eastern Shore with 100 protesters, many lying in the street as a "die-in" to show their concern for police brutality. What happened to Mr. Gray was horrifying, and the violence that descended upon this city has been terrible as well. But we are not alone in this journey. Where there have been a handful setting cars afire or helping themselves to retailers' inventory, there have been many more acting responsibly, helping neighbors, standing up to vandals and seeking justice without resorting to criminal behavior. If we are to survive this tipping point without falling back into chaos, it will be because of police and the National Guard, yes, but more so because hundreds of thousands of people of good will refuse to be defined by Baltimore's worst moments.
