Community Around The World Sends Words Of Comfort To Charleston #Honorthe9

Mourners gathered in Charleston on Friday to attend the funeral for the Rev. Clementa Pinckney, who died in the Mother Emanuel AME Church shooting last week. Pinckney was a state senator and head of the church.

We asked those who couldn't attend in person to submit their thoughts and condolences online. This collection of #honorthe9 posts is a tribute to the all the Charleston shooting victims.
