Today is a day set aside to remember a group of people we have lost to soon.

People with disabilities who were killed by a family member.

From the memorial site:

Every year on March 1st, the disability community comes together to remember the victims of filicide – people with disabilities murdered by their family members. Vigils are held on the Day of Mourning in cities around the world.

We have identified 20 individuals who had Down syndrome on that list.



There is no excuse, no reason that makes it understandable.
