This was a very brave act from one so young. I am happy to think I could could put my name on the Petition. I remember this day so well, and was very emotionally affected by Jordan’s Heroism. This Honour of a Medal is very moving. In God’s care - Jordan Rice.

The feeling was heart warming when I read that Jordan would be honoured with a Bravery Award. He only thought of his little brother's safety. Politicians stated that he should be honoured him officially for his bravery. It was people power that bought it to this conclusion. Much thanks goes to John for informing us of a worthy cause. Power To The People.

True hero more so as he was so young. What galls me is it needed this petition to get it done as Abbott was too gutless to do the right thing at the time
