Who and What is FORCE 100?
By - - - Collene (Thompson) Campbell
It is my belief that FORCE 100
is comprised of the most courageous, gallant and incredible people ever
assembled. These warriors were hand-selected from heroic leaders whose
dedication, commitment and hard work will not personally gain them a single
thing. Their work with FORCE 100
will not earn them a diploma, notoriety, advance them economically, or provide
them with entertainment or even relaxation. It won’t improve their health or
their appearance. The people involved with
FORCE 100 have accepted their
challenging mission “just because” they feel it is the right thing to do and
they don’t want others to live through the additional suffering they have been
forced to endure.
mission is thankless and keeps their deep and painful wounds open while
continuing to exposes the trauma related to their emotional and devastated
lives. These brave souls were not drafted or commanded to participate. They
have chosen their mission because of their personal knowledge of the enormous
additional and unnecessary suffering that occurs because others before them
have not taken on the battle, a battle that no one has wanted to fight.
no compensation or reimbursement for their time and expenses, but they are
still willing to go to combat and they plan to win their mammoth and thankless
task. Their ill-fated destiny was not by choice, not by lack of planning, not
by doing something wrong or illegal. The
FORCE 100 team’s fate was perpetrated by ruthless brutality,
delivered and dictated by evil criminals.
So, who is
FORCE 100? It is made up of people of all ages, cultures, races,
religions, political parties and economic means. They have one thing in
common. They are the Moms, Dads, Sisters, Brothers, Spouses, Relatives and
Friends of murdered victims and the victims of violence. The family tragedies
consist of slashed throats, rapes, broken necks, holes shot through their
bodies, bodies set on fire, those beaten to death, strangulations, bodies not
recovered, missing loved ones and tiny children raped and sexually molested
until they died.
100 is composed of our Nation’s Crime Victims from every State, who
are unwilling to just weep and spread sorrow. They understand that a lack of
previous action has allowed the perpetrators to be more successful in
committing their heinous crimes! These victims have witnessed the rights of
killers being upheld and protected by the U. S. Constitution. They have
learned the hard way, that victims are not protected by that same
Constitution. They have been shocked to realize that Crime Victims are not
even mentioned in our Nation’s Constitution while the criminal is protected
and mentioned two-dozen times, fifteen by Amendment’s alone.
is FORCE 100? It is composed of
dauntless brave American Heroes who are sacrificing deeply to improve the
American Justice System. In “Memory of Victims Everywhere”, these are the
heroes whose noble effort will be responsible for expanding the United States
Constitution to protect all citizens, even those who, through no fault of
their own, have become a victim of violent crime. The term “Grass Roots
Group” has never been more accurately applied.
of FORCE 100 is to help balance
the Justice System by affording U. S. Constitutional rights to victims of
violent crime. FORCE 100 will
expose the voting of the Legislators who continue to support the criminal’s
rights above the rights of honest, law-abiding victims of brutal crimes. The
elected officials who do not support the right for victim’s family to be
notified of court proceedings, the right to speak at the sentencing of the
perpetrator or the right to be present in the trial courtroom, will be
identified to the people. It is time Legislators respond to the devastation
caused by crime and cruelty
But the question still remains. What will the National Team Members of FORCE 100 gain personally? The answer is simple for the Co-Chairs of FORCE 100. They will go to their graves with the assurance; “There are those in Heaven who understand that we cared enough to fight to improve the future for others”.
