Anita Marshall, 3rd Anniversary Vigil for Mary Lands, March 12, 2007
May 13, 2007 is "Mother’s Day" and will mark the 4th anniversary since Anita Marshall has been able to celebrate this special family holiday with her beloved daughter, Mary Denise Lands.
I’d like to take this opportunity on behalf of myself and the Marshall family to wish all women across America a very Happy Mother’s Day. We have been extremely critical of Chris Pratt’s girl-friend especially as it related to the loss of Mary’s signs and other dubious activities. We undertook those actions not only to let her realize that what she has done was wrong, but to make her and other people aware of the national tragedy of domestic violence. A supporter recently informed us about a great online resource tool for those in abusive relationships and domestic violence. It may be found at http://www.brokenspirits.com
If Mary Lands was here today, she would be the first person to step up to help anyone suffering domestic violence and physical and emotional abuse.
We have made our point in documenting the loss of our "Justice for Mary" signs on video and will no longer pursue the matter in court. We will also remove the YouTube video presentation that has been published for the last two months and seen by over 23,000 viewers. There will be no further reference to it on the web sites and blogs dedicated to Mary’s disappearance. We sincerely believe that there are many other victims out there who have been suffering in the wake of the disappearance and murder of Mary Lands. Our thoughts will be with Mary and the other victims of domestic violence throughout America.
If you can help bring Mary home, please contact us. Your name will remain confidential if that is your choice.
Happy Mother’s Day to all.
