Regardless of whether you have lost someone you love to homicide, know someone who has been affected by thiscrime, or perhaps you are simply sympathetic to what losing someone in this way must be like, Daisy Chain Foundation is here to engage with and support you. You and your family and loved ones are the very reason we exist, to ensure every person in our community has access to the specialist guidance and support provided by Queensland Homicide Victims’ Support Group should they ever need it. And, while it’s easy to ‘think’ you may never find yourself in this position, the statistics are that homicide impacts at every level of our society. It does not discriminate based on age, gender, culture or socio-economic status. To try and imagine what it must be like to lose someone in this way is near impossible. Just try – imagine if one day, completely out of the blue, you received a phone call in the early hours of the morning, or a knock on your door from the police late at night, telling you someone you loved dearly and perhaps for most of your life, had been murdered in one senseless act. As incomprehensible as this would be, every person that has lost someone in this way, was just like you – they could and never did expect the news they received, or the rollercoaster of emotions and judicial complexities that followed. This is why we exist – to create a chain for community empathy, understanding and conviction; to stand strong in our courage and commitment to wipe out violence and the devastation it can and does bring.
