The statement Americans SHOULD have heard today from their President...

18 June 2015

“We all lose when senseless tragedies like this remove vibrant lives from our midst. May God give us the ability to rise above hatred and join hands and recognize that our strength is in our unity and love heals all wounds.”

~Dr. Benjamin Carson

“…we are a strong the and faithful state,” Haley said. “We love our state, we love our county, and most importantly we love each other.

“And I will tell you there is a lot of prayer in this state. And so you are going to see all of us try and lift these nine families up in prayer, because they need us. These nine families need us, the Emmanuel AME church needs us, the AME church family need us, and the the people of South Carolina needs us to come together and be strong for what has happened.”

 

 
Who were the victims of the Charleston church massacre?

Nine people were shot and killed at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston Wednesday. The victim’s identities became known as families were notified.

 

 
Now is not the time to be political, it’s time to be human

…There are people hurting right now from this. They will be hurting for a long time after this.

The most important thing we can do during tragedies is not score talking points, but comfort, support and love each other…
