All: Here is a note from Matt Carrington’s mother below on
the signing of the California hazing bill.
All of our hard work and persistence has finally paid off!Â For those of you that have not heard Governor Schwarzenegger signed Mattâ€™s Bill into Law today.
I received the fantastic news from Robert Oakes by phone at 12:39 this afternoon.Â Needless to say I was ecstatic and couldnâ€™t wait to tell you all but unfortunately I was in Chico, 3 hours away from home and my computer.
This is a monumental occasion and it would have never happened if not for all of your incredible support.Â Thank you, thank you, thank you, you have all been so wonderful through these very exhausting months.
However, as you know our work has just begun, now we must bring awareness to the fact that Mattâ€™s Law exists.Â Â But I will go into that later as I have still not made it home and would like to get there.
This is a great day, I am so proud of all of you for being here for Matt and us if I could I would hug all of you right now.Â Matt would be so elated that this is all happening.Â Hugs and kisses Matt I love you, this oneâ€™s for you honey, may your memory live on in all of us forever.
