We, the comrades of Unit 1012: The VFFDP, will make him one of The 82 murdered children of Unit 1012, where we will not forget him every year on February 12 and June 20. Let us remember how he lived and not how he died. We will always support his mother, Rosie Batty and his loved ones. Every year on June 20, we will remember how he lived on this earth as it is our policy to also remember the victim on his or her birthday.
