"Each person's grief is as unique as their fingerprint. But what everyone has in common is that no matter how they grieve, they share a need for their grief to be witnessed." -David Kessler 

 

We stand as witnesses to the grief of those left behind as a result of intimate partner homicide. Each loss is unique but the magnitude of the pain is the same. As a community, we also feel the loss. Each person leaves a void that cannot be filled - the teacher, the mother, the bus driver, the daughter, the realtor, the best friend, the nurse, the veteran, the neighbor, the student - all irreplaceable. Since 2000, Pinellas County has lost too many community members to intimate partner homicide. Even one is too many. For every one person who is murdered, at least five others are directly impacted. These deaths send ripples of pain into our community. As a result, our community as a whole, shares and witnesses that grief and loss.
