I use the word massacre intentionally: The Charleston Massacre. In fact, the word is accurately used for the murder of 10 or more people. Literally and accurately, I use the word inappropriately. However, I view the murder as more than the number of a beating hearts that were ceased that day. And as a person of faith, as I watch Mother Emanuel respond, I believe more than ever in the the power of resurrection, which raises us up not only when we reach the end of our lives, but also when the power of death visits us as it did in Charleston.
