Jerrie Williams is a blogger on the Beauregard Daily News website. The name of her blog is C.O.P.E. Community Organized Parents in Education. This blog is syndicated statewide to all GateHouse websites. She will not only be blogging about local education concerns, but information about resources for parental research on different subjects concerning children and their well being. Jerrie Williams is the mother of three autistic children. Her journey began in 1999, when she discovered that her children were not developing according to the national mind stone charts. This was after they had received immunizations and developed reactions to them. She later learned the immunizations contained an agent that her children were allergic to, which led to their developmental delays. She moved her children to Georgia to be treated by a specialist in autism and brain injury in 2000. Since then she has been searching and discovering several research-based interventions and resources to educate, support and assist in the recovery of autism. She moved to Louisiana in August, 2011, and has been involved in educating the community about autism and the resources available to parents of autistic children as well as adults with autism. She has been instrumental in helping the Beauregard Parish school system to design an individualized curriculum that was suited for the educational needs of her children as well as other special needs children. Her children have since blossomed with this curriculum and continue to thrive. She will continue in her journey as a mother and an advocate for others.
The film, which according to TMZ is tentatively titled Sexual Healing, will take place primarily during the 1980s and will focus on the late singer's drug use and depression during that time. (Gaye was shot and killed by his father in 1984.)
"The producers and directors of this film are very wrong and shameful ," Marvin Gaye III tells TMZ. "[They're] trying to do a film about a low period in his life. They don't even know the whole story."
To top it off, the younger Gaye's childhood friend and classmate, Kravitz, has been cast in the lead role.
"I would hope [Kravitz] doesn't have any idea that we are against this film being done," Gaye III said, adding that he and his family are taking legal steps to stop the production from going forward.
