I'm Cheska Tolentino, OC '09, posting on behalf of my friend, Carole Holland.
On February 1st, 2009 my son was run down on the side of the road in Negril, Jamaica, by someone who was racing on the roads. He was only 26, and was killed on my birthday, with my family assembled there for the celebration.
We are currently seeking to amass as much information as we can on others, especially American tourists who have been hurt, or know someone who was has been injured or killed on these roads, in an effort to force the government to institute measures to make the roads safe.
If you, or anyone you know been injured or have had friends or family killed while on the roads of Jamaica, I would like to hear from you. Please email back with your story.
Even if you personally have not experienced this, would you take a moment to support our efforts to make the roads of Jamaica safe for all, residents as well as tourists, by clicking on our on-line petition, and sharing it with as many people as you can? Our actions are already being taken notice of, the goal is to have hundreds of thousands of signatures. Please help.
Thank you so much.
(This is a serious request for help; those who would respond with nonsense or by trying to sell something, please, please take a pass on this one.) http://www.ForJustin.Com
