This weekend will mark the one year anniversary of Mother Emanuel AME Church shooting in Charleston which changed the lives of so many.   There has been much sadness due to the tragic event while there as also been tremendous healing and the grace shown by so many.  The medical society encourages harmony among races, religions, nationalities, ethnicities and upbringings. Our biologic similarities vastly outnumber our superficial differences.  Let Charleston continue to be a shining example of love and peace for the world.

The Charleston community knows first hand how the Orlando community is feeling in the aftermath of their own senseless and unprecedented act of violence.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the citizens, first responders and medical community of Orlando. Stay Strong Orlando!
