Mother Emanuel AME, Calhoun St., Charleston, SC
I still find myself steering my downtown walks past Mother Emanuel and I read the notes left in front of the church where the terrible shooting was. Flowers are still being laid on the sidewalk and messages left on banners. People pause quietly and parents put their arms around children trying to find words to explain what happened. We can't.
