Hello to all of my loved ones, I am writing this email in hopes of your support on a very important matter that plagues our community. Domestic Violence. I attended high school with a young lady by the name of Mia Reid, who was killed by her ex fiance' in the early morning hours in front of her 10 yr old daughter. Mia spent most of her life in Ga., but the unfortunate event happened in Baton Rouge, La. I am begging that this email gets forwarded to anyone you know in the Louisiana area. Here is what Mia's mother wrote on "Justice For Mia" petition site. "If you can, please attend the court proceedings on May 19th @ 10am in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This is to replace the court date which was cancelled March 25th. Mia's murderer's family fills up the courtroom; they are taking advantage of the fact that Mia's family lives in Georgia. The lack of any family and friends in the courtroom makes a sad statement to the judge, the prosecutor and to the murderer and his family. It maybe the reason the judge was willing to allow him to go free while he awaits his trial. Perhaps the judge thought that no one cares. " Maybe if this gets around to the right hands, Mia will have many supporters who are not going to allow this injustice to continue. Please forward to activist groups and supporters for families against domestic violence. Here is a picture of Mia and her daughter in happier times, along with the article outlining her untimely death. What if this was your daughter, sister, friend, niece, granddaughter, or simply.....you? Would you want the word out? http://www.2theadvocate.com/news/27323759.html
