Charleston

The day we left Fripp, Christopher and I were able to take Megan and Gavin to Charleston for the day. It was an especially moving time to be in the city because it was the week after the massacre at Emanuel AME Church. We were able to have some good talks with the kids about racism, hate, violence, forgiveness, and love. We walked from the Battery to the church, arriving as yet another funeral was beginning. We briefly paid our respects before heading back to our car. I love the history of Charleston and there was a feeling of peace and unity among its residents. In addition to our visit to Emanuel AME, we toured the Market, several waterfront parks, and ate some really great food.
