Day 2: Charleston, South CarolinaToday we attended mass at the Emanuel AME church. It was Palm Sunday and the mass was really beautiful. They had a lovely choir that sang with full passion. During mass the pastor made a comment about the date June 17 2015. She talked about how despite the tragedy they still prevailed. At the time, I was unaware of the event that occurred in the church. After doing some research after church, I found out that a mass shooting occurred within the church on June 17, 2015. The shooter killed nine civilians and discovering that this tragedy occurred within a church left me in utter disbelief. Yet, it left me admiring the strength that the church members still held.
After mass, we were able to look around in downtown Charleston. We ate at this local restaurant called Kickin' Chicken. I had the Italian Kickin'
Chicken sandwich and it was so good! If you decide to eat here you all should definitely get the macaroni and cheese. It was pure cheesy goodness! Once we finished eating we browsed through some stores and took phenomenal pictures.
Now we are at Atlanta, Georgia and we have a lot planned out for us tomorrow. I am very excited to see what is in store!
