♥ Remembering The Charleston 9 ♥

Sidestepping the "lynch mob"
In the wake of Orlando, let's not forget there are some out there who hate Christians and blacks - and people who happen to be both. In remembrance of them, for they are not forgotten:

And the fruit of the Spirit is: Love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law;

(Galatians 5:22 – 23)


FAITHFULNESS
The Rev. Clementa Pickney, 41

The long-serving Democratic state senator was remembered as both a good shepherd to his flock and a statesman who worked tirelessly for his constituents.
GENTLENESS
— Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, 45


A mother of three, reverend and track coach, Coleman-Singleton was also a highly respected high school speech therapist. “She genuinely loved her job,” (former Goose Creek High School teacher Sandy Tillman)

GOODNESS

— Cynthia Hurd, 54


Hurd worked for 31 years at the Charleston County Public Library, where she was known as diligent and deeply committed to her job.

JOY
— The Rev. Depayne Middleton-Doctor, 49


Middleton-Doctor was a mother of four daughters who sang in the church choir. She devoted her life to public service.

KINDNESS

— Ethel Lance, 70


Lance was a devoted member of the Emanuel AME Church where she worked for more than 30 years.

LONGSUFFERING

— Susie Jackson, 87


Jackson, a cousin of Ethel Lance, was also a longtime member of the church.

LOVE

— The Rev. Daniel Simmons, 74


A retired pastor, Simmons was a long-time administer at the Emanuel AME Church. “He definitely was a wonderful person,” his daughter-in-law Arcelia Simmons told The News. “He really loved to serve the Lord. He loved the AME church and everything about it.”

PEACE
— Tywanza Sanders, 26


Sanders was a barber with big dreams and a beaming smile. Sanders graduated from Allen University in 2014 with a degree in business administration. The recent grad, who had been working at the Against Da Grain Barber shop with his brother, had an “inkling toward entrepreneurship.” "He was a quiet, well-known student who was committed to his education," Allen University President Lady June Cole told The State newspaper.

SELF-CONTROL
— Myra Thompson, 59


Thompson was the wife of the Rev. Anthony Thompson, who is Vicar of Holy Trinity REC Church in Charleston. Thompson was remembered as an “up and comer” in the ministry who was on track to be an ordained minister.

@Laela...

Thank you, so much for posting this. What breaks my heart is that so little has been expressed via the main stream media to honor these dear lives that were stolen.

To those Precious and Beautiful Angels ...





Unto God be All the Glory
In
Jesus' Name, Amen and Amen​
