The Durham Homicide and Victims of Violent Death Memorial Quilt was created as a way to raise awareness about the impact of gun violence in Durham, North Carolina. It was started in protest after Shaquanna Attwater, a 2-year-old, was shot and killed in 1994.
We'll all experience loss during our lives. People process grief in their own ways, in their own time. One person may light a candle or release rose pedals downstream. Another might eat a loved one's favorite food, sing their favorite song, or engage in their favorite activity.
