I’ve wanted to say something about the murder of nine church-goers in South Carolina, but my words only rang like cliches. Instead, I’ve chosen to post this video of the Reverend Clementa Pinckney, one of the killer’s victims. He talked to visitors about his church’s history, which was born in resistance to the very kind of racism that seems to have been one of the apparent gunman’s motives. Pinckney brought his baritone voice to South Carolina’s State Senate. I’m sure many will miss that voice.
