Like so many of you my heart has been aching with grief and sadness from horiffic murders of these people.  I’ve been asking myself what can I do besides pray.  Well, for starters talk about it. Share your very real feelings with others. Let’s start by healing our nation.

Secondly,  let’s support the families of the fallen. Courtesy of Charleston government here are the ways you can support Mother Emanuel Church.

By using the Mother Emanuel Hope Fund

This city’s fund will provide direct financial support for the funeral and burial expenses of the nine victims of the senseless tragedy. Any funds remaining after the funeral and burial expenses are paid will be donated directly to the Emanuel AME Church for use as determined by its governance board.Donations to this fund are not tax-deductible.These denotations can be made in one of three ways ….
