Our Tears

This page is dedicated to the memories of those who have had their lives taken by the hands of another. Homicide victims are not just statistics or case numbers. They are real people who had lives until someone took them from them

If you think murder just happens to "other" people, think again, the families of the victims on this page used to be one of "you." The people you see on this page are somebody's children, fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, husbands, grandchildren, friends......

Their crime? Nothing. Their sentance? Death.......


My heart aches for the children we lost.
I see their pictures on this page.
Someone took their life without cause.
Leaving our lives in such a rage!

We cry the tears of loneliness.
For that's all we can do.
Our tears can't bring you home.
Oh, our tears are shed for you.

I see lives that are torn apart here.
So many hearts had to break.
All the pain we feel stays with us daily.
But how much more can we take?

Oh Lord, the mother with her baby.
Mother & child murdered without reason.
Oh, what they could have done in life...
If they had only been given a season.

So many mothers represented here.
They have so many tears to cry.
Their child was taken from them...
But we just don't understand why.

Children whose life was taken.
It just seems so unfair.
Left behind were the broken lives of families.
Families left with burdens to bear.

Now, as I see the faces on this page.
I know there must be a reason why.
Another left our hearts broken in two!
Now, we still have OUR TEARS to cry!

Gone from our sight-
But never our memories...
Gone from our touch-
But never our hearts......

The red and black ribbon was first designed in 1987 by Betty O'Donnell, parent of a murdered child and member of the Long Island, NY Chapter. The red represents the violence in society and the black symbolizes death and mourning. Angel pins are worn with the ribbons to symbolize the victims.

Imagine there's no heaven,
It's easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries,
It isnt hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...

Imagine no possesions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say Im a dreamer,
But Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.
