This post has been really difficult to publish. Terrible things have happened and I don’t want to jump on some media bandwagon and take advantage of someone’s grief, but I would like to highlight some profound things which have taken place.
At about 9pm on June 17th 2015, Cynthia Hurd, 54; Susie Jackson, 87; Ethel Lance, 70; Rev. DePayne Middleton-Doctor, 49; Hon. Rev. Clementa Pinckney, 41; Tywanza Sanders, 26; Rev. Daniel Simmons Sr., 74; Rev. Sharonda Singleton, 45 and Myra Thompson, 59 were killed after Dylann Roof opened fire during a bible study at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C.. Roof was taken into custody following an eighteen hour manhunt.
