In 2007, Congress designated Sept. 25 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 honor their memories. The purpose of this event is to focus on the impact of murder on families, and communities, and ways to support and serve survivors.
Each year VSS holds events in honor of National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims. This year our event will be held on Saturday, September 27th in Lynnwood at Martha Lake Park. We will have a balloon release, and time to share stories and mementos of loved ones. It’s a good chance to connect with others who have lost someone to homicide. Please feel free to call Velvet with any questions about the event at 425-252-6081.
