I haven't spoken to anyone who who feels anything other than sorrow and pain at these murders and the lives lost. Seems to me there is disgust in some quarters that all heck hasn't broken loose. The local papers/TV stations are being accused of baiting for coverage. I guess no chaos is bad for the news business.I am local and have raised my children in Charleston. I am originally from a midwestern town-where I am reading people spew ugliness and conspiracy towards this community. It is bizarre, they have never even been to this community-but want to spread a negative and hurtful message almost provoking confusion and paranoia.
I love this state and the people of this state for their strength and character. I am very glad to know the people in my community-and thank them all for their class and genuine kind hearts. When I have gone out into the community since this tragedy I feel kindred spirits and not hate brewing. We are joining with compassion for each other, not division. Just one of the many things that make South Carolina great!
