Starkesia was one of my best friend, she was a very happy person ,she always made me happy by just seeing her I miss her deeply. I remeber when we were in afterschool togther. she was really good at math. She was so truthful with everyone alot of guys like her.She was very popular. I remeber when she had my back when I was in a fight with some guy in the fifth grade. She was a true sloder

Star and I were dance partners at our church. Whenever I would see her she was around ALOT of people everybody knew Star and that's exactly what she was, a star. Even though she's gone she'll always be remembered!!! Through her death wil bring life to many others. Young people now days can die at any moment! So live your lives right!

RIP ~*STAR*~

Ihave known Star since forever because we grew up in church together and everytime I saw her she always had a smile on her face or was always laughin and had a positive attitude she was a very smart girl with plenty of friends. The first time Iheard about what happened I was in shock and I called my one friend that next day and we were talking and crying and saying it really hurts when something like this happens to a friend or at least someone you know or grew up with and now you know how it feels to have someone getting hurt like that and its ashame young people have to die before their time and never get to fulfill their goals and dreams but yet she has because now she somewhere that she has finished her goals and dreams and doesnt have to worry about stuff like this ever happening again. It might not look like a good thing to her friends and family down her but we should all know that she is looking down on us smilin saying its goin to be alright and that we dont have to cry ant more because she is in a better place than this!!!

I never met Starkesia but I do have a connection to her family. They are the nicest people in the world full of love. The article makes no sense because Congress didn't pull the trigger one man did and that is why we are all in mourning over her.

thanx 4 all da comments, they warmed my heart. as many of you know, i'm her big sister mica. i just want to say her smile and touch i miss, but more than anything i miss being able to talk to her about my boyfriend chris or my old friend moone.i guess what i'm saying is i miss my best friend. she was with me till the end and i was with her till the end(till she took her last breath). words can never express my pain but god can describe how i'm able to wash my face, get dressed,go to work, and enjoy the company of those i love. i hurt everyday but i also live everyday. i love you all and pleeeese pray 4 me. my email adress is armicaluvsstar@yahoo.com

It's a shame how are englewood children keep getting shot over nothing. Starkesia was something beautiful, she was somebody who was going to be something. It's funny how something beautiful always gets destroyed. It's jus so hard to let go of that smile and that sweet little voice when you've heard it for so long.

I DID NOT DIE
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and forever cry,
I am not there; I did not die.
