Put yourself in their shoes: Your child, brother, father, uncle, cousin has been murdered, you've no idea why and the killer is still running around free because no one will tell the police who did it.

This is what the families of Shaki Crockwell, Jason Lightbourne and Shaundae Jones have to deal with every day of their lives.

Now they want people to see and feel their frustration and become part of the solution by joining them in a 'Stop the Violence' march next Thursday. The plan is to meet outside the Seventh day Adventist Church on King Street next door to the fire station at 6.30pm.

Here we talk to all three family members. They tell us about the effects the murders have had on them and their families and whether they think their children's killers will ever be brought to justice.

Danny Crockwell

Danny Crockwell, like all the families we spoke to, is still desperate for answers.

It's been two months since his only son, Shaki, was shot on the railway trail. He's sick of all the rumours. All he wants is the truth: Who killed his son and why?

He told us: "I'm hoping this march will bring out the murderer who killed my son, or Shaundae or Jason because this has got to stop. Whoever knows about it, should come out now."

The physical and mental effects of losing his son almost drove him to suicide. "I have not ate or slept properly for two months. Me and Shaki are like skin on bone. I keep looking for him to come home. Every day is hard. I'm hoping this march will touch people's hearts."

He said: "I feel what Mrs. Jones [Shaundae's mom] is feeling, but she's felt it for four years. I've told people that I felt like I was going crazy, full foolish. At one time I felt like taking my own life - it felt like it should have been me and not him. A father should not have to bury his son. I think about him every moment of every day.

"It's hitting the family hard. My momma sits up every day looking at his picture. These children have been assassinated."

Mr. Crockwell pleads with anyone who has an issue or dispute with someone to think hard before they resort to violence.

He said: "Leave it up to the law. Don't take vengeance into your own hands. Go to the Father and pray. You think because you take their life, you hurt them, but what about the family? We are the one's that are suffering every single day.

"Now when I see little boys and their parents together I always tell them to say 'I love you'. Don't just say goodbye, tell them you love them."

Carolyn Winters

Carolyn Winters, 61, still can't believe her grandson, Jason Lightbourne, is dead.

"He was a premature baby. He fought to be in this world. To be taken out like that... I really still don't believe he is dead. The violence has got to stop," she said.

Jason was shot behind the wheel of a car on Ord Road in July last year. "He was my baby," the grandmother says, tearfully. "When they told me my grandson got killed I said 'stop lying'. I said I just saw Jason on Saturday afternoon. Sometimes I think my heart is healing but then I hear about these other murders - Shaki was my Godson - and it hits me hard."

Jason's auntie, Mia Winters, who has five children, said people don't realize the affects losing a family member like this can have on everyone else.

"It's destroyed me and my family. I can't get through a day without thinking about him. It's stressing me out. Sometimes it's very difficult to deal with my other kids because I'm thinking of him.

"When we play songs that Jason used to listen to, we all start to cry."

Ms Winters, 36, hopes next week's march will make parents reassess the relationship they have with their kids.

"If I were to say anything to parents, I'd say please hold your children close by. Fathers cling to your sons, make sure that they are okay. Find out who their friends are. They have only got one life to live. Live every day like it's your last."

Marsha Jones

Some people tell Marsha Jones to give it up, to stop speaking to the newspapers and television and to just get on with her life.

Her only son Shaundae was murdered four years ago. Let it go.

But she can't and she won't. Only when someone has been held accountable can she dream of closure. And even then, she still won't have her son back.

"I still have to have hope, without it I'll go crazy," she said.

"But as time goes by you get to a point where today you have hope, tomorrow you don't. My heart is still hurting."

Because of the amount of time that's passed since Shaundae's murder she's become a kind of 'go-to' person for the families of other murder victims.

Danny Crockwell says: "She gave me comfort. I felt like we connected, like I knew her before. I can start a sentence and she'll finish it. She touched my heart."

Mrs. Jones said her son's death contributed to the death of her mother four months later.

She said: "My momma was in a home when he was killed. I told her he was in an accident. When I took her to the funeral and she saw his casket up there she said: 'Oh Marsha. Where are you going to put it? She became so depressed after that she died four months later on my birthday. Now it's down to just me in the house."

Four years on and with no sign of anyone being convicted, Mrs. Jones has taken the cause to a new level. She thinks the Bermuda Police Service should have its own homicide division and forensics department. She also believes existing laws are too soft because everyone knows that life does not mean life. There are not enough deterrents, she said.

She knows the community is as tired as she is of all the violence, which is why she's agreed to take part in the march.

She said: "If you only do one thing next week, come out and support us. It's time we took a stand."
