Letter: Church shooting in Charleston

On Wednesday night, June 17, 2015, another tragedy of mass violence impacted the heart, mind, and soul of America. At Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC, worshippers at a prayer meeting were terrorized and nine perished from gunfire from a person who came in and sat with them in a house of worship.

I offer heartfelt condolences, prayers, and sympathies to the families and loved ones of those who lost their lives. I offer concern and prayers to those who were injured and to their families and loved ones. I trust that strength will embrace their community, as our fellow Americans endure unimaginable pain and loss.

Wayne Edwards, Councilman District A
