Hard to come up with words…

Tragedy strikes. Lives are lost. The community pulled together. I am so proud to live in Charleston, SC. An event that could have divided our city has instead made it stronger. I have seen a difference in the way people treat each other, and it is absolutely amazing! Our hearts all break for the friends and families who lost loved ones. The fact that it happened in a church just made it more horrific. These will not be easy times for the families, the church, the community, but we need to continue to pull together and be there for each other… Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.

Want to help? From the Charleston-SC.gov website – they are taking donations – details  are below.

*If you cannot help financially, just keep on with your thoughts and prayers!

Thank YOU!
