The human chain at Charlston locks out any option of a racist backlash. The masses who rallied around the victims of the church killings have been inspired by the courage of the black victims’ families. People of all faiths, colours and ages were moved to tears by such dignity and humility in the face of hatred and violence. “Forgiving the unforgivable” was the superhuman example set by close family members, and their existential testimony to the watching world.
