SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – In 2007, U.S. Congress designated September 25 as the “National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims” to honor the memories of murder victims and to recognize the impact on surviving family members.
The National Day of Remembrance also honors those organizations that provide support, advocacy and council to loved ones of murder victims.
On Sept. 25, District Attorney Ramos will unveil an online photo memorial of victims from San Bernardino County. The gallery currently has 40 photos. To view the online memorial, visit www.sbcountyda.org
“Having this memorial will provide family members and friends of murder victims a place online they can visit to reflect on their loved one and their loss,” District Attorney Michael Ramos said. “It’s also a chance for us as a community to recognize that their loss is our loss, and their pain is our pain.”
The public may also connect with the District Attorney’s office via Twitter on Sept. 25, using the hashtag #NDoR. Throughout the day, photos of staff members from the District Attorney’s office wearing their National Day of Remembrance black ribbons will be posted online at http://twitter.com/sbcountyda
District Attorney Michael Ramos will also attend a Remembrance Ceremony hosted by Parents of Murdered Children Saturday, Sept. 28, at 10 am at Green Acres Memorial Park & Mortuary, 11715 Cedar Ave., Bloomington 92316.
