Our hearts are with the members of Emanuel AME Church and all those touched by the horrific shooting on Wednesday night. This tragedy is beyond comprehension.

We grieve to the depth of our souls for those who died, for their families and friends, and for the sanctity of the church, which was so violated.

How profoundly sad it is that such unspeakable violence has, once again, called all of us to come together and truly care for one another.
