January 11th would mark the two-year anniversary of Nixzmary's brutal and untimely death at the hands of her so-called parents. On the day the news announcement of her death, initial outpouring of sympathy, a spate of condemnation against Child Welfare Services of NY, leaders commenting on the tragedy, and newspaper articles on the last days of Nixzmary's short life and of her beautiful wake and funeral held on January 18, 2006.
My question is where are all the people who initially shocked at Nixzmary's death? Where's Bloomberg and the leaders who shed crocodile tears? Where's Nixzmary's relatives and why aren't they pushing for her memory and to keep the monsters locked in prison for life?
People rarely value/memorialize child victims of Color , especially those who are Black. The victims' families deserve more than a footnote or an inital outpouring. Community leaders and family members could push the courts to prosecute those parents, newspapers and other media should have broken their necks to keep Nixzmary's memory and case in the spotlight every single day like they've done with Laci Peterson, JonBenet Ramsey, and Polly Klass. Organizations would have been preserving Miss Nixzmary's memory after her death.
On the other hand, I thank the people at Find-A-Grave.com for keeping Nixzmary's memory fresh on people's minds and heart. Over 1,100 tributes were published since the day of her death. Also, the memorial pages ordinary people kept in her memory and Keke Wright of Cynteria Haven. I want to thank them for doing just so.
Nixzmary Brown's memory will never be forgotten.
May she rests in peace.
