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 homicide, 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.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to hold our usual remembrance ceremony this year.
The Cherokee Judicial Circuit still celebrates and commemorates these lives through our remembrance website. This year 140 victims were remembered. Please join us virtually as we support these families.
