‘A bond that will not be broken’: Emanuel AME victims, families and friends applaud verdict, head into painful holidays

Last weekend, Jennifer Pinckney sat down her two young daughters individually, including the now-7-year-old who hid beneath a desk with her as a gunman executed their father on the other side of a thin wall.
