Peace World. This is beyond sad. As a youth worker, nothing troubles me more than seeing a young person who’s parents have failed them and now the legal system could potentially fail this young man in this case. Please sign this petition to keep Cristian Fernandez from being jailed for the rest of his life and pass it on. If you are able to do more, please do so. Click the image for more information and to sign the petition.

Stay in peace and give thanks for the blessings you have whether they are few or many.
