“When I started this petition I was just some 16-year-old kid who had just lost his role model and hero,” wrote Nick Moghtader from Vancouver in Canada, who registered the petition.

“I was using it as a way to cope and mourn his passing. My initial goal was to get a mere 100 signatures. Never would I have thought for this petition to get so incredibly big,” he wrote.
