On the evening of June 17, 2015, a young man walked into the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina with terror in his heart.

I awoke yesterday morning at 4.45 a.m. in a panic. The day before I had moved my furniture and released my dogs, Daisy and Mufasa, to their new owner. Now, I realized, I was really moving to Canada. A rush of seemingly limitless “things to do before I leave” flooded my brain, juxtaposed with the […]
