Justin Carr Wants World Peace in the News


S.A.F.E. HEART SCREENING will perform the tests for ALL AGES 12-24 YEARS OLD

WHERE: HOLMAN UNITED METHODIST CHURCH 3320 West Adams Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90018
WHEN: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2018 – 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.


Justin Carr wanted World Peace since he was 4 years old. He loved swimming, design and performing arts.
He was vibrant and a seemingly healthy 16-year-old Junior at Harvard-Westlake high school. He died during his usual swim team practice from an undiagnosed heart condition on February 22, 2013. Darrell & Susan Carr want to save other families from dealing with an unimaginable loss that can be prevented.

According to Parent Heart Watch, “Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is not a heart attack – it’s the sudden onset of an abnormal and potentially fatal heart rhythm that causes the heart to beat ineffectively or not at all. The underlying cause of SCA can be a heart condition you’re born with (often inherited) and/or can develop as young hearts grow. SCA can also be triggered from a viral illness, or a blow to the chest from an object or a person.”

  • Screenings are non-invasive (no needles or x-ray
    exposures) and take about 20 minutes to complete.
  • Screenings include a health history review and ECG.
  • If the participant is under 18 years old and brings a
    fully signed/completed screening packet, parents do not
    need to be present at the event.
  • Female technicians screen girls in a separate area
    from boys. Private screening areas available as needed.
  • Participants should dress in t-shirt and sweat pants
    or sports shorts. Girls should wear a sports bra.
  • Instructions will be given if follow-up medical care is
    recommended. Final reports will be sent after the
    cardiologist formal review.

Darrell and Susan on KCAL 9 News

Darrell and I will be on the 12:00 p.m. KCAL Channel 9 News tomorrow to talk about Justin and our upcoming event. The LIVE segment usually hits at 12:44 pm and runs 4-5 minutes.

We are very excited about having our guest speaker Dr. Maya Soetoro-Ng. She is the Co-Founder of “The Ceeds of Peace Foundation” & Director, of the Matsunaga Institute for Peace & Conflict Resolution at the University of Hawaii. She will talk about how we can make our immediate world better, build resilience in ourselves, and raise peace builders in our children. It is imperative that we build resilience for ourselves and for our communities.
Her book, “Ladders to the Moon”, will also be available. She wrote this book for her daughter who never met her grandmother. She shared the wisdom she gained from her own mother, Ann Dunham, who was also the mother of President Barack Obama

Grateful for those who LIFT OUR VOICE and who SING

Early last year I got a phone call from a representative  of the AM 830 KLAA Radio Community Care show.

She stated that she had recently watched  the CBS2 News “Justin’s Story”.  Subsequently,  they wanted  to do a radio  interview with us  so that we could once again tell Justin’s Story and his hopes for World peace.

A few days later, we went to the station and met with  Tammy Trujillo  – who is a  Greater Los Angeles Area – ‎Award-Winning Broadcaster, Voice-Over Artist, College Media Professor, Animal Behavorist.  Before we started, I shared with Tammy the audio recording that I found on Justin’s cell phone- of him  casually   singing the National Anthem.

Darrell then showed her images of Justin’s art.  As she began the interview, Tammy could barely  keep her composure as she fought back her tears.  Everyone in the room was silent.

After she received her award tonight, Tammy said that  she knew that Justin’s story and message would touch the ears, souls and minds of anyone who listened- just as it had done to her.  She also said that although  her extensive career has afforded her the opportunity to receive many coveted awards, hands down, this one really hits home and means something to her and she said she won it for us.






So when you’re down something just bring’s you up!! Tonight Tammy Trujillo won a Radio Television and News Associaiton (RTNA)  65th Annual Golden Mike Award for Justin Carr World-Peace Story!  As noted on the RTNA  ” The Golden Mike Awards® are Southern California’s most prestigious, and most coveted, broadcast journalism prize Unlike most awards contests in which winners are determined by selecting which entry is the “best” among all those submitted in each category, winners of the Golden Mike Awards®” must also meet the “Standard of Excellence”.

We smiled tonight a bit as the story of Justin continues to be shared. An Emmy for TV And now a Golden Mike for Radio. I wore the outfit and scarf Justin got for me and I felt him close to my heart. Thank you Justin… Thank you Tammy Trujillo for giving us a voice..

The ripples continue.  In a few weeks Jensen McRae- one of Justin’s talented friends- has spearheaded an upcoming concert in honor of Justin.  It will be held on February 22, 2015.  See following link for details:
