prayers for charleston

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. 
--Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968) Minister and Civil-Rights Leader.

Prayers for Charleston and the families of the victims of last week's horrible tragedy. Peggy Noonan wrote a beautiful tribute and reflection that I recommend.
