Kitty Genovese (July 7, 1935 - March 13, 1964)

Although Kitty was murdered fifty years ago, looking at this picture still saddens me beyond belief.  I almost couldn't post it.  St. James Infirmary remembers her and the smear that her murder placed on those who didn't try to help her.  Shame on all of us and our society of fear.
