Remembering Julian: The Rocks

There is a wonderful custom in North
Carolina. Students paint messages on large rocks placed in conspicuous locations on school campuses. Normally, these messages are about the upcoming homecoming game, a student’s birthday or a graduating class. On April 26, 2004, students began re-painting the rocks, as news spread about the death, in Paris, France of their young classmate, Julian Brown.

The rocks on this page are from Myers Park High School in Charlotte, NC where he was a freshman. In an overwhelming demonstration oWe'll miss you..giff good will and community support, expressions like those on the caption below appeared throughout Charlotte; concurrently with front-page stories and news reports in the Charlotte Observer newspaper, on local television stations (WBTV, WSOC, WCNC, WCCB), cable news outlets and the World Wide Web.

We wanted you to see a few of those rocks. One of his classmates wrote: "It takes some people 80 years to make a difference, Julian it only took you 13."

Thank you Charlotte, North Carolina. You came through for Julian in so many extraordinary ways!
