San Francisco, October 08, 2007. The European/American Issues Forum will hold its Tenth Annual Zebra Victims Memorial Services in memory of the forgotten innocent victims of violent crimes. Quita Hague (neé Pirelli-Minetti) and her husband were the first official victims and were abducted and driven to an isolated railroad track area where they were violently attacked. Quita died, but her husband Richard miraculously lived.

A Resolution in support of the goal will be presented to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors for passage,
The following will be the CLOSING PRAYER at the Memorial Service:
God of mercy, we remember all those who lost their lives in these tragic killings thirty years ago. We honor their lives cut abruptly short and reverence their precious memories. May we never forget them, and may they live forever in your endless light.
We ask for your special grace upon the victims’ grieving families; strengthen and comfort them as they continue to struggle with the loss of their loved ones. We ask for healing of our own difficult emotions and troubled spirits. Give us the strength of heart and mind to seek the truth and bring about justice.
We pray for a healing of the divisions in our country; that all forms of discrimination will be banished from our hearts, our society, and our laws, and that as a nation we will come to respect all people equally.
We commend the victims of the Zebra killings to your everlasting care and remembrance. This is our benediction.
