Georgia has experienced one of the highest COVID-19 death rates per capita in the world — over 5,400 deaths…and counting!!
On August 27, 2020, the Loved Ones, Not Numbers Memorial Wall, was unveiled at the National Center for Civil and Human Rights.
The wall displays 5,000 broken hearts symbolizing the victims of COVID-19 in Georgia. A shattering reminder that those who have died are mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandpas, aunts and uncles, neighbors and friends.
They are Loved Ones, Not Numbers!
Visit the Memorial Wall located on the plaza of the National Center for Civil and Human Rights at 100 Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd NW, Atlanta GA 30313
Please bring a permanent marker if you wish to claim a heart and write a message to a lost loved one.

Pleasant joined the church & gave his life to Christ at the age of 12 and anyone that came in contact with him believed the same. We the family must now take joy in knowing that Daddy not only knew the Lord but he served and loved him. We are who we are because of who, Dad was in Chris.

I'm reminded of an excerpt from a poem and here is a portion of that excerpt. "The dash between the dates represents all the time we spend alive on earth and now only those who loved us know what that little dash is worth. It matters not how much we own, the cars, the house, the cash. What matters is how we live and love and how we spent our dash"
