Event for Victims of Crime

Today I joined Sueann Ray's dad, Danny Jenkins and our 9th Judicial Circuit court for an event to remember crime victims. This week is known as National Crime Victims' Awareness week all across the US.

We felt that we needed to be a part of this event because of Sueann. The road has been so long since last August. Even after Sueann's body being located, the road has not gotten any easier. We are still anticipating a two year wait until the trial can even begin.

Sueann's dad takes every opportunity to tell others about not giving up on finding justice for their loved ones, so today was very necessary.
There were others there who have suffered a similar loss and it is amazing to me how this type of thing continues to happen. Somehow we must stop it.
My heart goes out to Danny and all others who are going to these events across the US to remember their loved ones. I wish there was some way I could reach out to all of them and take away the pain they are feeling. Although that is impossible, I know that taking a stand for the victims and their memory is a step in the right direction. Being available to offer assistance and support to those who that we know about is our main goal. Little pieces make larger pieces, and from there, we can do so much.

Sueann's husband, Quinton Ray will be in court again on Wednesday, September 20, 2006 for his formal arraignment. It has been scheduled previously but pushed back.

A reminder to all people reading this blog who may have suffered a loss.... You can stand up and make a difference. You can give your loved one and many others a voice. Don't be afraid to mess up or look stupid. The world needs to hear what you have to say. Don't keep these things hidden inside. You'll feel much better if you open up and let others learn about your situation. No person walks alone.
