These past nine days…

These past nine days, though raw and sorrowful, have been full of respect, grace, humility, freedom and love. A coming together. Extraordinary beauty. Joy.

I can say that in the wake of all that, with the culmination of today’s events, from the smallest gesture of unity on the sidewalk of Marion Square, to the National commitment to letting love win, I have never been more proud to be a Charlestonian, a South Carolinian, and an American.

And then just when I thought it couldn’t get any better…

Amazing. Grace.

Today. I am in awe. And I am changed forever.

    With God’s grace I hope we all are. To see what I have witnessed in the last few days is a miracle. To have this happen in a city with Charleston’s tortured past is a monument to people of good will who have learned to love their neighbors as themselves. Hope we keep this spirit.

    Beautifully expressed. You’ve said what’s in many hearts, and well beyond Charleston.
