LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Across the country this week, thousands will participate in what is known as National Crime Victims' Rights Week.
Sunday, an opening ceremony and memorial service was held at the Clinton Center for Parents of Murdered Children. Many who have been with that organization say it has become an outlet for them to express their grief during tough times.
Amy Stivers' daughter was murdered in August 2008, and the crime is still unsolved.
"When you go to things like this you realize you are not the only person," says Stivers. "You have symptoms I guess is what you call it. Symptoms like stress from death and there are things that other people have. When you come together like this it just shows you are not the only one."
Activities are planned all week long in Little Rock ending with a candlelight vigil Thursday at the Clinton Presidential Park Bridge. That ceremony will be held at 7 pm.
