Every human is a living epistle i.e. has a story. Unfortunately, many stories are untold due to the sudden unexpected death as result of horrific circumstances. (e.g. natural disasters, homicides, and war). Hopefully, this project will encourage family historians to fully accept circumstances of family members' death. In so doing, there's a move towards healing, knowing 'you are not alone'.

In society, much attention is given to the perpetrator of the horrific acts and not to the victim of the acts. However, much can be understood and many homicide cases are solved by studying (celebrating) the lives of the victims. Studying the lives of victims utilizes F.A.N principle and provides insight into migration patterns.

This project is created to be not only a memorial to victims of violent and 'non-violent' (e.g. abduction) crimes but to allow them to tell their testimonies as the most important eye-witness to crime or natural disasters that resulted in their own death.

This project is created to be not only a memorial to victims who experienced sudden unexpected death due to horrific circumstances. (e.g. natural disasters, homicides, terror attacks, and war) but may offer sense of closure to those who mourn the deaths.
