We are completely saddened by the inexplicable event that occurred last night in downtown Charleston and want to extend our deepest thoughts, prayers and sympathies to the families that are suffering from such a tragic loss. There are no words.

We have grown to love and embrace this city and are continuing to hope for justice, even while we each travel back to our respective homes.

In her keynote this week, Sonya shared with us the Legend of the Two Wolves. With respect to that, we would like to encourage everyone in this time to feed the good wolf. Don’t feed into the hate and division that’s so pervasive right now. Instead go into your communities and add more love to the world.
