‘Hate won’t win’: Social media shaken to the core as Charleston families forgive killer


Confessed killer Dylann Roof’s evil plan to divide America and start a race war failed when unity and forgiveness overcame hate in Charleston.

Thousands gathered at a civic center in downtown Charleston Friday night to remember the nine people who were killed Wednesday  at the historic black Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church, The Daily Mail reported.

Whites, blacks, Christians, and Jews held hands, offered prayers, and showed forgiveness for Roof even after his horrendous act.

Rabbi Stephanie Alexander told the crowd, “How do we eradicate the hate? How do we eradicate the violence? We search, but we search together.”

“If that young man thought he was going to divide this country… he miserably failed,” Mayor Joe Riley said to his grieving but unified Charleston citizens. “Let’s keep these nine people and their families in our prayers and never forget them.”

In a truly supernatural act, the families of the slain offered Roof their forgiveness at his first court appearance.

Touched and shaken to the core, social media erupted in tweets of support.

Even well-known celebrities, media personalities and bloggers were moved.

These families speak for the best in America: in the midst of rage and anger, hate won’t win.
