Tomorrow evening in my hometown of Greenwich there will be a Jaliek Rainwalker candlelight vigil in remembrance of the missing child who has been gone for 12 years. It will be taken place at the Gazebo in Mowry Park on Main St and it will take place after the lighted tractor parade in Greenwich.
Keep in mind, though that this candlelight vigil wasn’t my idea… a young woman in FB came up with this idea and a Jaliek FB group called “Jaliek’s Army” which is a FB group for Jaliek supporters only helped setup the candlelight vigil in Greenwich.
I know the adoptive parents of Jaliek (Stephen & Jocelyn) are not gonna be happy with this candlelight vigil and they are probably fuming over this but this candlelight vigil is NOT an attack at them. This candlelight vigil is all about remembering Jaliek. We just want to keep his name alive and that is all. That’s the goal with this vigil so that Greenwich can be reminded of his name and never forget him ever. We just want to let Jaliek know we care about him and we are listening to him.
Hopefully there will be a good turnout for this vigil and I think a good crowd will show up. I’m definitely gonna make it I think. I really should ’cause I’m one of Jaliek’s biggest supporters.
There are some people who are not interested in this missing child’s case about Jaliek and there are some who have lost interest but I will never lose interest or forget him. This kid has been on my mind ever since he disappeared in 2007. No matter how long ago it was, I’ll never forget him. This candlelight vigil event is happening whether people like it or not, it needs to happen and I’m glad it is.
If the adoptive parents want to show up so be it just as long as they’re not confrontational and all… this was meaning to be a peaceful thing.
