On Sunday, crime victim advocates and murder victims' loved ones will gather in Houston for Crime Stoppers' annual "Day of Remembrance" as violence continues to grip cities around the country. This year's ceremony, however, will be different from years past.

Officials with Crime Stoppers of Houston said they expect a large crowd to gather in Houston's Midtown neighborhood to pay homage to those murdered in Harris County from August 2021 to August 2022. Unlike in past years, when organizers would read off each homicide victim's name, this year those names will scroll across a screen instead.

Organizers say there are simply too many names to read aloud.

"Three or four years ago, we used to read off the names and ages of the homicide victims for that year," Andy Kahan, director of victims services for Crime Stoppers told Fox News Digital. "We can't do that anymore because it would take hours."

States with lax gun laws have more homicides. In Texas anyone can have a gun  no permit needed
