"Lord bless all of the children who have fallen victim to crimes of violence. May we remember their names in our hearts and their families in our prayers."

I think it was Cassidy Senter's mother, Rhonda Senter, who said that no one ever remembers the victims and those words had been my inspiration for this website.

If you know of a Missouri area child which has been lost to violent crime please e-mail me so that I may have them added to this online memorial. I also have another memorial for children murdered in NE, OK, IA, KS, IL, KY, AR and TN. If you know about a child murdered in these other states who should not be forgotten then please notify me.

Our Goal is to show compassion to the victims families and friends, not to display and credit the killers handiwork,  something appreciated by friends of Angie, Casey, Gena, Jake and Tiffany. We don't do death stories or exploit children's memories. (For further info see our policy statement.)

The Book of Sirach in The Old Testament gives a description of Heaven in chapter 43 Verse 11-12, This is evidence of the rainbow in heaven. 

"Behold the rainbow! Then bless its maker, for majestic indeed is its splendor. It spans the heavens with its glory. This bow bent by the mighty hand of God."

To any parents, family or friends visiting my memorial site I'd like to say I'm deeply saddened for your loss.

One school not given coverage that I know is Parkway South Junior High, A student killed one student, wounded another, before committing suicide due to being harassed. I only mention the cause of the shooting here to bring attention to the peer pressure students face and to say that just because their harassment may not produce such a incident, it may leave haunting memories to the victim that never can be replaced. So I ask, Please don't bully another student and ruin a memory!

National school shootings that have taken place include:

  • Springfield, OR
  • Jonesboro or Hope, AK
  • Savannah, GA
  • Pearl, MS
  • Littleton, CO
  • Edinboro, PA
  • Paducah, KY
  • Mount Morris Township, MI
  • Santee, CA
