365 Days of Photos – Day 249 (Emanuel A.M.E. Church)

During our travels home from Canada last month we stopped in Charleston South Carolina for lunch.

It was humbling to have the opportunity to visit the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church where 9 church members were murdered on June 17, 2015 by a racist gunman.

Memorials

Visitors continue to leave memorials

Peace

Pleas for peace.

Fire hydrant

Words of hope

love each other

Signs of forgiveness

rosary

And an overwhelming sense of kindness.

The family members of the victims and the members of this church set such a fine example of what true humanity is….when they forgave the individual that perpetrated this crime.

Love must always win!
