Citizens have started a Change.org petition asking President Obama to invite the family of Charles Poland, Jr., to the White House in order to honor the slain man's sacrifice.

Poland is credited with trying to stop the kidnapping of 6-year-old Ethan from his bus in Midland City last week.

Poland was shot and killed and the petition asks that President Obama recognize his sacrifice. If you would like to view or sign this petition, please visit:
