Remembering China's children
A wreath was placed on a live oak tree before a tree planting ceremony at Chucky Seaman Memorial Park across the street from China Elementary School in China on Thursday, Sept. 7, 2006. The tree was planted in remembrance of 11-year-old Nathen Lawrence Jennings and his 7-year-old sister, Carmen Leigh Jennings, who were murdered by her father June 30, 2006.
