Charleston, like so many places (and people) that I love, is beautiful and wonderful with a deeply conflicted and problematic history that isn't really over yet. This is not the first time a racially-motivated crime against humanity has been committed there, and I doubt it will be the last. History will vindicate the 9 victims of this shooting, as it has vindicated the countless human lives that were trafficked through the city market.

But we don't yet have the sober lens of time through which to view this event; for now, we only have pain, and uncertainty, and yet paradoxically, we have the assurance that the victims are in a place of peace and rest, in a place altogether more blessed than this vale of tears they left behind all too soon. My prayers are with the families of the victims, who must learn to carry on in this bitter world without the ones they love. My prayers are with all of humanity, that we may someday learn to get by without hurting each other.
