I've wanted to visit this site for a while. It hits one in the gut but leaves you with hope for the future. Both the students and teachers did a wonderful job with this.

Very informative. Only takes less than 30 minutes. Sad and very touching. Take your children so they can begin to understand the horrors of what evil can do if given a chace.

Since it is at Whitwell Middle School, I looked at the school's website. Tried to post a link here but this site won't let me. Just google Whitwell Middle School, Whitwell, Tennessee and it will come up. Hope this helps.
