I though the speech was very helpful in making the right choice because now I know what not to do and what to do in the future for me to succeed.

They did an amazing speech, it was very inspirational and sad. It makes people start to think before they act. And to make the right decision. And to have a parent to be there for them

I have known Jamie for several years and have always had such respect for her. I couldn't imagine that my respect and love for her could grow any bigger than what it already was. Then this past school year I had the opportunity to hear Jamie speak at Apopka High, in that moment my love and respect grew even more for her. To watch this women impact and hopefully change young peoples lives was amazing. Her presentation was absolutely remarkable. Jamie had almost the entire room in tears along with smiles and laughter. She knew exactly how to pull at every emotion to make them listen and think. She even had me think about the choices I make at 29 years old let alone these young adults who's decisions can impact their lives along with others in such positive and negative ways. I am proud to say that I know such a remarkable & generous women. Jamie has done outstanding job with her message to our youth.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would clone Jamie so that there were more young people who could hear this life changing message.

We went to see Jamie McWilliams speak to a group of students a few months ago. From the very beginning of the presentation the kids were intrigued and captivated by Jamie's story about the terrible decisions young adults made which caused her to loose her son. The fact that they could relate to a mother in pain made the story real and had many of them thinking about choices they have been making. I think Jamie's efforts to help even one child make better decisions happens every time she speaks to a young group of individuals. The volunteers of her group and Jamie deserve a gold star in my book for trying to make a difference in the decisions are kids make.

There isn't much to say that has not been said before my post. Jamie leaves me inspired and in awe of her passion and strength. I have known Jamie and her family since I was a little girl watching my brother play baseball with her son Justin. Although we were not extremely close, the loss of his life hit me and my family hard. Watching Jamie successfully fight for new laws and safety of our young community is beyond inspiring. Selfless and determined- Jamie McWilliams is undeniably saving children's lives and touching many hearts young and old. She is leading a path many should follow.. I dream of being half the person!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand and grow!!!

This group shows strength and courage in young adults to stand up for what is right instead of what everyone else is doing. It is the going back to the basics of morality and can really change people- from adults with children to the teens themselves. Jamie McWilliams has a powerful story and message that needs to be spread and heard throughout our country!

This is an amazing organization that reaches out to our youth in a very loving, candid and personal level. Jamie has taken the pain, agony, brokeness and struggles of losing her only son and has made a concious effort to turn that experience into a positive, informative, tangible, educational and emotional message to bring the message of responsibility, thinking things through, and ownership of your choices to our upcoming young adults. On a personal level, when I met Jamie years ago I could not believe the strength and composure she had while she was telling me all the things that her organization does. The excitement in her voice and of her efforts to reach as many lives as possible. I cannot imagine having to stand before anyone and time and time again relive the pain and agony of losing my child, but Jamie seems to find in her inner self the strength and ability to overcome her pain and emotion and reach out to make a difference in the lives of others.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it a mandatory session for kids in middle school through high school to sit in and listen!
