Remembrance Ceremony

Remembering Those Lost

In 2007, Congress designated September 25th as the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims. Robert and Charlotte Hullinger, of Cincinnati formed Parents of Murdered Children following the 1978 murder of their 19-year-old daughter, Lisa while she was studying in Germany. The annual day of observance is on the date Lisa was murdered. The annual National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims gives us all the opportunity to remember those lost to homocide, and to honor their memories. The purpose of this day of remembrance is to focus on the impact of murder on families and communities and ways to support and serve survivors.

 September 25th, 2015 marks the 5th annual Remembrance Ceremony in the Cherokee Judicial Circuit. Over 100 victims will be remembered this year.  As always, this is a public event and all are encouraged to attend. Please plan to join us as we support these families.
