Tribute for Emanuel AME?

I don't know if this is possible under the rules, but listening to the grieving families forgiving that 21 year old monster and not calling for revenge and retribution had a profound effect on me. I think it would be very appropriate, if possible, to consider this historic church (and by reference its membership) for the next Nobel Peace Prize.

1. YES. Meanwhile, donations might help.

Bernie Sanders has asked his donors to do this.

4. If we're talking about helping the congregation of Emanuel, Bernie's suggestion seems

more to the point. JMO.

5. $ is going to the same place

The Palmetto Project money will defray expenses for the families, and any funds after that go to the church for their community outreach programs.

2. The most shocking thing to me is what an asset to everybody living in SC lost in those .....

particular nine victims. I am so sorry about this and I have no way to demonstrate this to my fellow citizens who are black. Anything I think of seems trite and full of where was I before Tuesday.

One thing is for sure: that damned rag of a flag needs to come down all over the US. I would gladly go to SC to help do it there.
