    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.

    Boy are we in agreement on this!

    Incidentally, I have always hated big cities (anything over about 7-8 K population:tongue3:) but have always said that if IF I ever had to move to a big city, Charleston would be it!

    Ferguson and Baltimore can most certainly learn from them.

    The media is not known for thinking beyond the next sensational headline.

    Besides, it totally frustrates the liberal agenda.
