International Memorial Day for second generation

from Falcon - Monday, January 28, 2008
accessed 2084 times

RISE International is planning a worldwide memorial day on August 10, 2008 to commemorate the deaths of children and adults born and/or raised in cults.

‘The Lost Children’ memorial will be held to remember the many second and even third generation children born and/or raised in cults whose lives were cut short through suicide, physical/mental abuse, medical neglect, drug overdose, murder and cultic fighting groups such as the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) in Northern Uganda. RISE International and Safe Passage Foundation are working together to organize this event, which will be held in London, UK; San Diego, California, Australia and Gulu, Uganda.

Memorial website

As part of this event, we are creating a virtual memorial website which will honour the memory of the Lost Children. If you have a deceased relative, friend or loved one who you would like remembered, please email us at
We will create an individual page for them on the memorial website to which you can post their information (name, biographical information, photographs, audio, video, eulogies, dedications, etc). Please note that the memorial website is currently in a preliminary development stage and to facilitate the design and development process we would like to begin gathering information and multimedia content for it as early as possible.

We plan to have live audio and video feeds of the memorial events for those that are not able to attend in person.

“Sometimes an ordinary life is an extraordinary accomplishment.”
The Lost Children memorial day will also celebrate our achievements as survivors. A yearly Outstanding Survivor Award will be presented during the event. If you know someone who you feel deserves recognition you can nominate them on the website.
