THE DEADLY SHOOTING DEATHS OF NINE BLACK AMERICANS IN A CHARLESTON, SC CHURCH LAST WEDNESDAY NIGHT LEFT MANY THINKING THAT ANOTHER FULL BLOWN RACIAL RIOT MIGHT VERY WELL ENGULF THIS BEAUTIFUL SOUTHERN TOWN.  AFTER ALL, THE ALLEGED GUNMAN, DYLANN ROOF, WAS DEFINITELY A RACIST FILLED WITH HATE AND HE SHOWED LITTLE EMOTION AS HE GUNNED DOWN CHURCH MEMBERS ATTENDING A BIBLE CLASS WITH THEIR PASTOR, REVEREND CLEMENTA PINCKNEY, WHO WAS ALSO KILLED.

BUT CHARLESTON SURPRISED THE WORLD AS THE CHRISTIAN SPIRIT OF THE FAMILIES OF THE VICTIMS, OTHER CHURCH GOERS AND THE OVERALL COMMUNITY RESPONDED WITH LOVE RATHER THAN HATE.  AND YESTERDAY, A HUGE CROWD VISITED THE EMANUEL AME CHURCH TO SHOW SOLIDARITY WITH ITS MEMBERS IN THE WAKE OF THE TRAGEDY.

WHY WERE THINGS SO DIFFERENT IN CHARLESTON THAN THE EVENTS PREVIOUSLY IN FERGUSON AND BALTIMORE?  AND WHAT CAN THIS TEACH US AS WE GO FORWARD IN A NATION THAT HAS SO MUCH HOSTILITY AND HATRED INSTILLED IN SO MANY?

JOIN NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE TONIGHT AS WE DISCUSS CHARLESTON AND HOW THE HOLY SPIRIT MAKES THINGS DIFFERENT.  WE'LL SEE YOU AT 9 EASTERN.
