CHARLESTON, SC - JUNE 18:  Mourners hold hands during a community prayer service for the nine victims of last night's shooting at the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, at Second Presbyterian Church  June 18, 2015 in Charleston, South Carolina. Dylann Storm Roof, 21, of Lexington, South Carolina, who allegedly attended a prayer meeting at the church for an hour before opening fire and killing three men and six women, was arrested today. Among the dead is the Rev. Clementa Pinckney, a state senator and a pastor at Emanuel AME, the oldest black congregation in America south of Baltimore, according to the National Park Service.

While emotions are high, political debates need to be set aside to allow for mourning and time to emotionally process this tragedy, the multiple murders at Emanuel A.M.E. Church last Wednesday night.

The story is familiar to most of us now.  A young man from Lexington, S.C. visited the historic church on Calhoun St. and attended a Bible study Wednesday evening, led by Rev. Clementa Pinckney.  Afterwards, he stood, drew his gun, announced his intentions, and shot ten of the attendees.  Nine died and one remains in the hospital.
