At the end of each year I take time to reflect. I remember all of the kindness and the great people who have helped me share my mission of The Jennifer Act. I would never have envisioned I would be doing this mission work of The Jennifer Act (Legislation, Drug & Alcohol Prevention & Education).
I’m sure God knew how his purpose and plan would be woven into my life and the people who would help me. God is always working behind the scenes to make sure that His will is accomplished.
I want to take this moment to thank the media, newspapers and the state representatives and their legislative assistants who have helped me share the vision and mission over the past year. Their support is vital to effectively communicating my passion to save lives and improve old, outdated Involuntary Commitment laws and procedures. Amending old and outdated laws is vital and important to saving lives.
My sincere thanks to all of you who have helped me and saw importance in my cause. This would include, TBO, St. Petersburg Times, The Herald Times, Indiana Daily Student Newspaper, Spencer Evening World, News Channel 8-WFLA, TBN- Trinity Broadcasting Network, CBS, NBC, WRTV-6, WTHR-TV, CATS-TV and WFHB radio. The Investigative Reporters who help me share my story are instumental, as well as the Newspaper Journalists and radio hosts. Honestly, I have met so many wonderful media professionals that I just can’t thank enough for sharing the ministry work of The Jennifer Act.
A very special “Thank you” to Indiana State Representative Steve Davisson, Indiana State Senator John Waterman, former Indiana State Senator Vi Simpson, Florida State Senator Jack Latvala and his Legislatative Assistant, Brenda Johnson and newly elected Florida State Representataive Chris Latvala. All are key to addressing the need to save lives and insuring current and effective laws are in place to aid families in a life and death crisis.
I would also like to thank my family “team” who helps me keep everything going. My son, Nate Blair, for keeping this website updated and running smoothly, printing all of my materials for The Jennifer Act, and my husband, Andy Blair for his support and sharing my passion to save lives and the wonderful work they do at PLS Print, Inc, Clearwater, FL.
I also wish to thank those who help share my other passion, Grandparent Visitation Laws and improvements. A big shout out to WFLA- News Channel 8, Investgative Reporter, Mark Douglas for sharing my story of Grandparent Allianation. Losing my daughter, Jennifer to an accidental RX Overdose in Florida was a heart breaking tragedy. Addiction is a family disease. One person is afflicted and the entire family shares in the suffering. Losing all contact and communication with my grandson, Trey (Jennifer’s only son) has been a double tragedy. His father (A Tampa Family Law Attorney) has removed Trey from his natural Grandparents who love and cherish him, dearly.
I have partnered with two new organizations this year, SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) & The Red Ribbon Campaign. I have worked with both this year as I Advocate for Drug Education & Prevention. I have partnered with NOPE Task Force Candle Vigils as a Guest Speaker for six years. We will always remember those precious lives lost to overdose.
I would like to thank you all who have been interceding in prayers and petitions to our LORD for this bill to pass. -Colossians 3:1
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
To each and every person who has shown compassion and professionalism and shared my vision, I am truely grateful to you all. I wish you all a “Merry Christmas” and a very “Happy New Year”!
