Product Description

Donate any amount to the Sand Creek Massacre Initiative! The purpose of this memorial is to honor the victims of the massacre, provide healing for the Cheyenne and Arapaho people, and remind lawmakers of a dark chapter in Colorado and American history. Most importantly, the memorial seeks to promote education and awareness among the 250,000 annual visitors to the State Capitol. As Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper noted-“[t]here needs to be a permanent memorial to the victims of the Sand Creek Massacre at the Colorado State Capitol, not only to tell the story to the public, but also to remind future generations…of the pain caused by the broken promises and racially motivated violence that still affect the Cheyenne and Arapaho people to this day!”

    I met Milton and Ruby only a few times, and it was many years ago. I had not heard of his passing. I have been going touhrgh my own difficult times, but his warmth and smile and the few soft and encouraging words he spoke to me so many years ago stuck with me, and that’s how I ended up finding this website. Months ago I was clearing touhrgh some old pictures, getting ready to move on to the next chapter of my life. Listening to Jazz Music and I came across pictures of Donna and the Murrill children. It put a smile on my face, as I wiped away my tears. Those tears have returned to me now, finding out very much by accident of his passing. To Ruby and the rest of the family, please know that it is very much in part my memories of you and Milton that have helped me get touhrgh these times and keep a smile on my face and not let my experiences drag me into despair. My thoughts are with you all, you touched my life.I thank you for that, and for all the wonderful music.
