We want to get a BILL started in Jesse Watlington's name that requires all youth sport complex's to install Early Warning Lightning Detection devices.

A tragedy has "STRUCK" in Lee County this past week and has claimed the life of an 11year old boy by the name of Jesse Watlington. He was a football player at a private Christian School in Fort Myers Florida. He was only eleven. He passed away on October 7th, 2012. Our hearts are saddened for the family of this child and we are trying to get a bill passed and have it mandated that ALL schools, sports fields, and places where sports are played at are required to have an EARLY WARNING LIGHTNING DETECTION DEVICE installed so that a tragedy like this one will have more of a chance of being avoided.
We need our representatives Connie Mack and Marco Rubio to stand for something that will really make a difference in the lives of our children. This is a preventive cause that literally could have saved a life.

Signed,

Amy K. Sica

Many of us have children who participate in sports at the schools they attend and this would be a great way to try and protect them from the storms that often happen. This would be an EARLY DETECTION and would allow the schools to actually have an alarm that would sound if the storm is too close for comfort. In doing this we as parents can rest a little better knowing that precautions are being done to protect our children. I personally do not want my children to be a statistic.
