On this day 5 years ago, I distinctly remember waking up early to do my normal morning prep for the show and seeing the story of the Charleston Church Massacre.  The story was still developing and no names had been released.  As I scrolled down my facebook timeline, one of my FB friends posted several messages trying to locate her mother.  She said she was an active member at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.  My heart dropped and tears began to roll down my face as I watched her messages change from “searching for my mother” to “confirmation”.  Her mother was one of the 9 people that were tragically killed and her life was forever changed.  I find myself thinking about Denise and her mother, Myra Thompson a lot.

Myra Thompson was tragically killed in the “Charleston Church Massacre”. Here she is pictured with her daughter Denise.

 

Today, June 17th marks 5 years since we lost this group of dynamic people that are known as “The Emanuel 9”.  We honor their legacy today and every day.  R.I.P
