  The tragic shootings in Charleston last week shocked and saddened South Carolinians and all Americans.  But the resilience of Charlestonians shone through as they returned violence and hate with forgiveness.  In this report, U.S. Representative James Clyburn of South Carolina’s sixth congressional district remembers his friend, pastor and State Senator Clementa Pinckney, and gives his thoughts on why and how Charleston has remained  calm and has come together to heal after the tragedy.
