Amy Devitt's post

Yesterday in Greensboro, I thought it was really neat to see the authentic counter that Franklin McCain, Joseph McNeil, Ezell Blair, Jr., and David Richmond sat at 56 years ago. Watching the videos and reading about the event is one thing, but actually being where they were makes their story affect me so much more.

This morning in Charleston, I am so glad we were able to attend a service at Mother Emanuel AME. Going into the church, my heart was very heavy as I was thinking about the horrific massacre that took place just 9 months ago, but after experiencing the joy and spirit that the congregation had, I was able to leave content knowing that the people of Emanuel AME were no longer in a valley, but instead had overcome to be on a mountaintop.
