Jamiel's Law, Yea We Did!
December 4th & December 5th, 2008, will be days to remember! Gathering signatures for Jamiel's Law was one of the hardest things we had to do, BUT WE DID IT!!
It went down to the wire and it was nothing short of a Hail Mary! It was something that should of been on video for all to see! We thanked God because it felt like a miracle in the making!!!!
Seventy-six thousand plus signatures were turned in seconds before 5:00 PM on Friday, December 5, 2008. We were gathering signatures and signatures were coming in even at 4:59:50, even while we were in the City Elections Office. An hour before the due-date I stopped counting Petitions because Petitions were coming in so fast. There were 20 volunteers helping us get the Petitions packed and ready. We cried, we laughed, we prayed, we hugged and we were angry too.
We cried because it was so emotional! It was like we were fighting for the whole world. We were laughing because we were so happy! We prayed because we know that there is opposition against us. We hugged because we now believe that we are family! And we are angry because we shouldn't have to fight this hard just to get illegal alien, gang banging gangsters off the streets of Los Angeles.
Eventhough we are waiting for the City of Los Angeles to verify the signatures, we want to thank some of the people who made this possible. This is a major accomplishment and it did take the local community and this Country and people across the world. It will take a lifetime to thank everyone, but let's start with just a few.
The Shaw Family truly thank every person who was able to sign the Jamiel's Law Petition! If it weren't for signatures, we could not have gotten it done!
We thank the Bologna & the Kennedy Family for taking their time to fight with us!! They didn't have to come to Los Angeles to help, but they did! We thank the March family for their support and Gwen at S.T.E.V.I.E., and all the families who lost loved ones and still had the strength to help get signatures for Jamiel's Law. We also thank Ice Cube for making a video to bring attenton to senseless gun violence and for keeping the Jamiel Shaw Story alive!
