Day of Mourning 2014:
 Remembering People with Disabilities Murdered by Caregivers

Virtual Vigil

Far too often, when a disabled person is murdered by a caregiver, journalists write as though it is the disabled victim 
who has perpetrated a crime simply by existing. In discussing the killing, people say that we should feel sorry 
for the murderer, because they had to live with a disabled relative. When a disabled person is murdered, 
many people act as though the murder victim’s life, not their death, was a tragedy.
