As the nation grappled with the carnage of Wednesday’s massacre at the Church, the bloodshed has shaken Charleston — and the nation. Kent Williams the cousin of the Pastor said this about the incident “It says to the world that we’re not safe anywhere anymore. … It is despicable.”
Before Roof left the church, he stood over one of the victims and “uttered a racially inflammatory statement,” according to his arrest warrant.
“It is devastating that somebody would go into God’s house and commit such a crime,” said Kent Williams.
Felecia Sanders — the mother who saw her son die Wednesday night — recalled how she and the others welcomed Roof into the Bible study. “We enjoyed you,” she told the court. “But may God have mercy on you.”
The true spirit of a Christian stands out, letting the world know that there is power in Forgiveness!
