The Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church has withstood numerous acts of violence over its two hundred year history, and yet survived. Today its doors are open for Sunday services. Some of those in the pews today are relatives of the people who were murdered on Wednesday - and many of them have already offered their forgiveness to the confused racist thug who killed their loved ones. They aren't just parroting Jesus or singing to Jesus, they are being Jesus.
May the very good people at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston become a light in the darkness for the entire nation. It's time for the Civil War to end.
