I honestly don’t ever want to hear the name of the shooter again.  I don’t want to see his photograph either.

I am ashamed and angry about the horrific violence that has invaded our lives yet again.

I’m praying for the families, friends and loved ones of the victims.

The local newspaper in Charleston has published short bios for each of these precious people.

I encourage you to click on the links so you can see a photograph of each person.  They lived amazing lives, each making a difference to many other lives by living their faith.
