FEEDBACK: Forgiveness column still touches heart

John W. Martin III, McBee, S.C.: “It has been over a year and a half since I read your column about forgiveness at Emanuel Church in Charleston (I just read it again). You are one of the few who seem to acknowledge the greatness of what happened there.

It continues to return to my mind to the point that I want to visit that church.”

By Andy Brack, editor and publisher | The whole notion of forgiveness has been in the front of many people’s minds in the weeks since the massacre at Emanuel AME Church. Just how, they wonder, could family members of the victims, one after another, forgive the accused shooter so quickly after such a reprehensible deed?
