Nine people, each with a family, friends — let us make sure they are not lost from the story.

Emanuel AME Church has faced many hardships over the years, but the church has persevered and thrived. May Emanuel’s faithful find the strength to make their way through the tragedy that has taken the lives of nine of their members, including their pastor. We share their grief, and we stand with them in love and solidarity.
— The Rev. Peter Morales, president of the Unitarian Universalist Association
