Victims of violent crimes honored at memorial

WHITTIER, Calif.

This is sponsored by the group, Justice for Homicide Victims.

Relatives and friends gathered to light candles, release doves and symbolically send messages to their loved ones.

Among those attending was Henry Nicholas who co-sponsored /*Marsy's Law*/, the /*California Crime Victim's Bill of Rights*/, which was named for his sister.

"This is just one state. We've got 49 other states, and we'd like to see Marsy's Law become not just part of the California constitution but we'd like to see it be the 28th amendment to the United States constitution," said Nicholas.
