Carmichael Petition Rallyby Christine Jackson on 04/23/10
Saturday April 24, 2010 Jon Carmichael is the young man who committed suicide (at his school) in Joshua last month. One major contributing factor was excessive bullying and torment @ school – and the negative response he received when he sought help from school staff and administration.
Jon’s family, along with my own family and several others, is petitioning the State of Texas to amend legislature that currently allows and tolerates school staff and administration to be bystanders (as opposed to responsible professionals who actually care for and protect our children).
Tomorrow, Saturday May 24th, from (9:00 am to 2:00 pm) Jon’s family will be hosting a petition drive (their goal is 1 million signatures) @ the Punkin Patch in Joshua (see map and address on calendar page). Will you please consider taking a little bit of your time to support progress? Will you also spread the word to anyone you know will be willing to rally support for both legislation and a grieving family?
Our local situation, with a lot of effort, is gaining national and state-wide attention thanks to diligent networking and prayer from wonderful people like you.
