MA Victims of Violence Honored Today

September 20, 2007

Boston, MA - Families of loved ones killed in Massachusetts will gather near Government Center in Boston today for the third annual ceremony of the Garden of Peace. The names of victims are engraved in stones, and 52 will be added this year, bringing the total to 565. Evelyn Tobin, who chairs the board of the Garden, lost her daughter in 1992. The crime remains unsolved. Tobin says the Garden serves two purposes.

"One obvious purpose is to honor the memory of people who were lost to violent crimes. The other is to remind people of the need to address violence in our society."

Mari Adams' daughter was killed in 1987, and then she lost her son in 1994. She says she visits the Garden often.

"Sometimes I go and just sit at lunchtime or after work. It's a place where I can reflect and think of happy memories."

This year's ceremony is being hosted by Massachusetts' Attorney General Martha Coakley.
