We come here to remember those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever. May all who leave here know the impact of violence. May this memorial offer comfort, strength, peace, hope and serenity.®
Lead by Chairman and Family Member Susan Winchester, the 19th Annual Remembrance Ceremony could not have seen a more beautiful morning.
