article imageVictims of genocide remembered at memorial service Special

By Paula Kirman     Jul 21, 2014 in World
Edmonton - A memorial service on July 20 remembered victims of genocide in recent history throughout the world, through speakers, songs, and prayers.
The sixth annual Genocide Memorial Service was jointly organized by the Unitarian Church of Edmonton and the Edmonton Interfaith Centre for Education and Action. It was held at the home of Rev. Audrey Brooks of the Unitarian Church, who got the idea for the service when she had her front yard landscaped as a dry creek of stones adorned with the names of ethnic groups and places where genocide has occurred.
In addition to a stone-placing ceremony, the service featured speakers from different parts of the world such as Rwanda, the Congo, and South Korea, talking about their own experiences of how war and violence have affected their lives.
