How nice to hear from someone who goes to the same church as the Lee family. Tell me how does the Blue Ridge United Methodist Church expect its followers to atone for their sins ? Do they expect some sort of penance ? How about just acknowledging they have done wrong ?<quoted text>
How wonderful that this young man, in the midst of trouble, has been able to carry on. I am sure it has not been easy. Bless him, his family and friends for supporting him. A tragedy such as this could easily have destroyed this able man. May he go from strength to strength.
By way of a personal story, I once had a friend whose car hit a child that ran out into the four-lane highway he was driving on. The child was killed. My friend was so torn-up, his parents had to send him out-of-state for college. He survived and is very successful today. I can't imagine what Jake is going through -- something like what my friend went through I am suspect.
I know I join people of good will everywhere saying, Jake, stay strong, keep focused on Jesus, and keep moving forward. Bless you son. We love you
It is not a miracle that Jake graduated early. He was removed from the High School because he was a bad influence. He graduated early from an alternative school probably along with all the other troubled teenagers in his class. No big achievement.
If he was to impress me he would stop telling people he passed out (low blood sugar) and own up to his behavior that night.
Oh, and by the way I do know this family and I am a Georgian who can trace my ancestry to the Pre-Civil War years so do not go there.
