Dylann Roof's Victims Remembered By CNN As Trial Comes To A Close

Roof's trial has, by all accounts, been a terrible testimony to the power of hate.

CNN host Brianna Keilar took a moment out of reporting on the Dylann Roof trial to play a recording of the call made to 911 from inside the church after Roof shot 9 people dead to start a race war.

According to a New York Times report, the trial has been an agonizing journey for the survivors.

After playing a recording of the 911 call made from the church that night, Brianna Keilar read the names of the victims to ensure that we don't only remember Roof, but those whom he murdered in cold blood. Here are those names:

Cynthia Hurd

Susie Jackson

Ethel Lance

Rev. DePayne Middleton-Doctor

Hon. Rev. Clementa Pinckney

Tywanza Sanders

Rev. Daniel Simmons Sr.

Rev. Sharonda Singleton

Myra Thompson

In this holiday season, my heart goes out to each of their families and the community which has been so damaged by the hateful act of one man with too many guns.

May they all have peace, and may their loved ones rest in peace.
