For decades, September 15, 1963 has been known as the day Birmingham lost four little girls during the bombing of 16th Street Baptist Church.

This Sunday, many will pause and remember the sacrifice Addie Mae Collins, Carole Robertson and Cynthia Wesley, all 14, and Denise McNair, 11.  Remember lives lost in a horrific attack on Sunday, where they were preparing for worship.   On that same day, two other lives were cut short.  Many do not know that after the bombing's aftermath two teenage boys were killed.
