Nine are gone from us

The Rhode Island Black Heritage Society sent out the following email on Friday after services to remember nine victims of a mass killing at the Mother Emanuel A.M.E. Church in South Carolina.

Please take a moment to pray, remember, hold up to the light, those we lost in Charleston.

Nine are gone from us.

"Ask not just who did the killing, but about the system, the way of life, the philosophy which produced the murder."
- Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Once again, innocent people were killed in part because someone who wanted to inflict harm had no trouble
getting their hands on a gun."
- President Obama
