One cannot ignore the history of Charleston even while admiring its beauty. Truly a wonderful city, and yet rooted in tragedy. We went out to dinner with our beloved family members and took the opportunity to stop before this historic church to say a few silent prayers and reflect on where we have been...where we are now...and what the future might hold.
The church stands mighty and tall, a testament to the resilience of an amazing people who love her and their God. It stands for hope and dignity. It stands for forgiveness. It stands for peace.
