People walk around the Jeffco Administration and Courts Facility during the Courage Walk on April 12.

One act of violence can have a lifetime of repercussions. 

For most of the 200 or so people at this year’s Courage Walk at the Jeffco government center, those repercussions are well known. The event brings survivors and victims’ families together to pay tribute to those lost to violence and to survivors of violent acts. It concludes in the Courage Garden behind the Taj Mahal.

It also gives attendees a chance to connect with others who understand their pain.
