My daughter was murdered on August 15, 2008 in Jacksonville, Arkansas and my life at that moment was forever altered. I spent the next 3years numbing my pain, wanting to die, and just spinning out of control. Finally one day my aunt searched for a place for me to get help. She found a place called Parents Of Murdered Children and I began going to their support meetings. It was there that I found others who felt like me and who we're experiencing the same thoughts and feelings. It's was there that I could speak of my daughter and no one got tired of hearing her name or my stories of her. It's was there that I found a new family full of love and understanding. A place where there is no judgement, and no one saying "when are you going to get over this?" Parents Of Murdered Children is a non-profit organization who helped those affected by homicide. They help with on going emotional support, advocacy, prevention and awareness. They also send out anniversary notes, accompany survivors to court hearings and parole hearings and they have memorials through out the year to recognize your loved one. POMC has helped me and many other survivors of homicide. Unfortunately there is a demanding need for POMC in Central Arkansas due to the doubled homicide rate this year. My wish is for our community to donate and give to POMC and for anyone who is affected by homicide to come check us out at 916 Garland at 6:30p.m. On the second Tuesday and the forth Thursday of every month or to call our 24 hour hotline if in need of help. 501-375-POMC (7662).
