Victims Of The Charleston Tragedy

This appeared on Facebook so I can’t verify that it’s 100% accurate but I think it’s important to put a face on this senseless act of violence.

Those who lost their lives at Emanuel AME Church are:
• Cynthia Hurd, 54, a manager with the Charleston County Public Library system.


• Ethel Lance, 70, a retiree who recently worked as a church janitor


• Rev. Clementa Pinckney, 41, a South Carolina state senator and pastor at the church


• Susie Jackson, 87, a longtime member of the church


• Depayne Middleton Doctor, 49, former Charleston County community development director


• Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, a church pastor, speech therapist and a high school girls’ track coach


• Myra Thompson, 59, a pastor at the church


• Rev. Daniel Simmons, Sr., 74, another pastor at the church


• Tywanza Sanders, 26, a 2014 graduate of Allen University, where Pinckney was also an alum.

Remember their names. And remember the 5-year-old that survived because her grandmother instructed her to play dead.
