I’m grateful to friends who have shared thoughtful words about Charleston this week as I continue to try to process things.
The three that have helped my understanding the most I’m sharing here:
A column from Gene Patterson, written in 1963, about the Alabama church bombing, posted by my friend Michael Sluss. I’ve read it four times. I will read it again. It’s here.
A poem, by Kwame Alexander, called A Thousand Winters, which I hope you can see if you follow this link.
And an essay on why we should speak about the unspeakable, brought to my attention by author Gigi Amateau.
