This week I spoke about the power of forgiveness with Rev. Sharon Risher (pictured above) whose relatives were among the Mother Emanuel shooting victims. Michael Arad, the architect behind the new memorial to the Emanuel Nine, discussed the collaborative process of designing an homage to the congregation.
