    Four years ago, the nation paused in horror and disbelief as the news of a mass shooting during bible study in Charleston, SC began to make headlines.

    9 lives were taken June 17, 2015 at Emanuel AME Church, and countless others were forever changed by the horrific acts carried out by a then 21 year old, Dylan Roof.
