We prefer to think of ourselves as invincible, especially when the year turns. We look ahead to a fresh slate, a running start into 365 days of possibilities. For these 41 men and women, however, life was cut short in 2010. And the people they left behind no doubt still grieve.

The city's youngest homicide victim was just two years shy of her 21st birthday. The oldest was only 68. When it comes to skin color, there is no equality: Nearly 90 percent of these victims were black, with two of them Hispanic and three white. Six were female, meaning that 22 of the 41 who died, or more than one half, were black men under 40 — 18 of them not yet out of their 20s.
