Petition to Tyler Cassity, Eric Garcetti

Let's follow Chester's wishes and give him the statue he deserves!

The recent passing of Chester Charles Bennington has created a great movement for the awareness of mental illness, suicide prevention, and child sexual abuse. Individuals from around the world are reaching out to each other on social media and asking complete strangers to listen to their pleas for help. Communities and families have been created all on the common goal of doing what we all call, "make Chester proud." Make Chester proud is a movement that occurred shortly after his death in which everyone is coming together and doing what they can to make change in the world. Chester Bennington was a man with a big heart. He loved his fans and loved the world. He gave countless time and money in order to help in any charity he could possible. Chester believed with all his heart that one day we could all live in a world of peace if only we could all just help one another and be there for each other. Since his passing, many of Chester Bennington fans and followers have felt as though they need a place in which they are able to pay their respects to Chester Bennington and all the great things he's done. Because there is no grave site in which fans can visit and pay their respects; many have suggested the idea of placing a statue of Chester Bennington at the Hollywood Cemetery in his honor. If this statue is created, the fans and followers of Chester Bennington will have a place where they can pay their respects to this amazing individual. This statue would be a form of closure for those that feel they still need it. Chester mentioned jokingly on camera that he would like a monument made in his honor when he died. Well we all heard him, and we did not see it as a joke. This man is deserving of such an honor as having himself immortalized into a statue for us all to see. Please consider this and give those that need our closure what we seek. Thank you!
