Teenage Children of Murdered Charleston Church Victim Have Already Forgiven Shooter

Two teens who lost their mother when Dylann Roof opened fire in a Charleston Church are better people than I am, for sure. Showing amazing Christian forbearance, these two teens have said they’ve already forgiven the young man who murdered their mother on Wednesday night. I wonder if I could be that forgiving? How about you?

Camryn and Chris Singleton, the children of slain churchgoer Sharonda Singleton, appeared in an interview on the BBC and said they’ve already forgiven Dylann Roof.

“I just feel a lot of love. I’m a little bitter…but I’m overwhelmed with love,” Singleton’s daughter, Camryn, told BBC News.

“We already forgive him for what he’s done, and there’s nothing but love from our side of the family,” her son, Chris, added.

This is an amazing example of classic Christian ideals in action, one you don’t see often–especially in this sort of situation. These young people are amazingly strong.
