THE CHARLESTON NINE...
It struck me today, after three days of news coverage of the awful events in Charleston, that we the people are in such a state! We are grieving with these families and yet we have no way to explain the atrocity or the reasoning behind it.
Yet look at the way things are unfolding around this mind numbing experience:
There is a remarkable state of forgiveness from the victims families, at least from those who were able to speak publicly the other night.
The family members want to honor their lost loved ones in the most remarkable ways---a young man who lost his beloved Mother, lets us know openly how she taught him to love and how her smile was a constant that he will never forget---and her optimism through her own life is now passed on to him.
A mother, prone in grief, confronts the soul-less one who took her young sons life the day after he did it and forgives him!....
The devastating loss of these 9 remarkable human beings, cut down by a vacant soul after they opened their hearts and arms to him in this historic church could find a parallel in another time, another event of significance.
This is the time for all good men to awaken to the Love-Hate compendium:
Hatred cannot exist where Love is.
