In Columbia, SC yesterday a portrait of the late Senator Clemente Pinckney was unveiled in a crowded Senate Chambers. The portrait was painted by a local and fellow artist Larry Lebby.  Members of Emmanuel AME church and community along with South Carolina citizens of various regions came to give respect.

In memory of the late Senator, my wife and University of South Carolina administrator gave each family member snippets of a Hydrangea. The roots with for and the plant can be place in a place that will give the Senator recognition every year. I watch as she cut each peace and placed in water bags. While she placed them in coolers for travel, I asked how why? After hearing the explanation I knew that the families would be appreciative of the gesture.

 

May the memory of what happened leads us to joy and not hate.
