SOME OF OUR SUPPORTERS FOR THE WALL:

President Bill Clinton: “My prayers are with everyone gathered…I know that your service will be an inspiring memorial to those who lost their lives so senselessly at Jonestown.”

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi: “Cherishing the Children Memorial Wall will provide a place of comfort and solace to the children’s relatives and loved ones as well as to those who wish to honor the memory of Congressman Leo Ryan and all those who lost their lives. ”

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger: “My special gratitude goes to Dr., Jynona Norwood for her remarkable compassion and determination to gather the funds and resources needed for your memorial.”

Mayor James T. Butts: I commend Dr. Jynona Norwood and Cherishing the Children for their tremendous efforts in remembering the men, women and children who lost their lives in Jonestown, Guyana.

Dr. Maya Angelou: “I heartily support the idea of a tributary wall dedicated to the spirits of those who were lost. I will be pleased to write a dedication to be inscribed on an architecture built for those purposes.”

Congresswoman Maxine Walters: We must never forget that tragic event. For those of us who were around at that time, the memorial will serve as a constant reminder that while the pain of losing a loved one never fades, it must also arouse in us the desire to do good each day of our lives.

Congresswoman Barbara Lee: “I support your efforts… Again, thank you for all of the work you are doing to create this Memorial.”

Mayor Elihu M. Harris: “I support the construction of the Jonestown Memorial Wall to commemorate the Jonestown tragedy. This is an important issue and I will help in every way to make the memorial Wall a lasting reminder so that these men, women, and children have not perished in vain.”
