I believe that we can all learn something from the way the people in Charleston have responded to the tragedy of last Wednesday! I have a wonderful much loved granddaughter who went to college in Charleston and has made it her home. I frequently tell her that people in Charleston think it is "heaven on earth". Perhaps there is something to that. Those family members who stood in court and said they forgave the killer made me somewhat ashamed of myself because I am not sure I could do the same.
