So I went to the Jaliek Rainwalker candlelight vigil last night at Mowry Park in Greenwich as you can see in the pics above. Even though this vigil got some local news attention and a lot of internet buzz, it only turned out to be a small crowd turnout. Some people did come, though.
A few local news media outlets came to film a report about the vigil and interview members of Jalieks Army there. I tried to stay out of media spotlight; although, you’ll see me on TV a little bit. I’m not camera shy at all is just that I don’t do media interviews too well. I’m afraid I might mess up speaking on camera and afraid that I’ll be stuck on what to say next, that kind of stuff. So I let others do the talking to the media.
Above are pics of me at the event and the links below are a few reports with video:
There were mixed emotions at the vigil last night from sad and positive. Even though there was a small crowd turnout, it was still a successful night. No one came to disrupt and give us a bunch of drama and bullshit so it was all good.
Stephen Kerr and Jocelyn didn’t show predictably even though they probably knew about this event (I bet they did). I knew they wouldn’t show ’cause they’re trying to do everything they can to forget Jaliek… but even if they did show up, we would have welcomed them there anyways only if they were there peacefully and not there to give us drama. Since Kerr and McDonald didn’t show, that’s good enough proof that they don’t care about Jaliek at all so there you go.
It was a good night, though. I’m glad I went. Nice to get out of the house and meet new people for a change. I’m glad to finally start meeting other Jaliek supporters in person.
I just had to go myself ’cause I supported Jaliek for over a decade and he never left my mind ever since he went missing in 2007.
Low crowd turnout but that’s fine. We were there to honor Jaliek and pay our respects for him. Let him know that we’re listening and we still care for him. It was a good experience. There will be more events like this so hopefully we get bigger and better crowds in the future.
I’m proud to be one of Jaliek’s biggest supporters. I vow to help get the truth of Jaliek’s disappearance and am willing to help find him myself with the help of other people known as Jaliek’s Army which is a group I’m a part of. No one’s gonna silence us and no one is gonna stop us. There will be people with opposite views of Jaliek being murdered by his own adoptive parents coming after us but screw them. We’re not going to stop just to appease them. If you’re one of those who defends Kerr & McDonald then you’re a non-Jaliek believer, period.
Jaliek needs his justice and those responsible for his disappearance/murder will be caught. We won’t rest until Jaliek is found… I don’t care what the other side thinks.
