For Jerry Ramirez, a St. Joseph resident where Wetterling was abducted, signing his name and his son's name, tyler meant a lot to him.
"It was really important for me and my son to sign our names and live by the traits. Just being from the area and knowing the family meant a lot to us says, Ramirez"
Ramirez was not just signing to sign, for him, he wanted to at least live by one of the 11 traits. One, in particular, stood out to him.
"I think the fair one hits home. Just making sure everybody knows everyone deserves an equal chance or an opportunity to be a part of something. So being fair is great"
