Clean and Sober

If you watch the video on the internet of the four girls who died in the truck wreck four years ago, look at how many of the photos show them drinking. It's a damned shame that those kids spent that much time throwing their lives away using drugs (yes, alcohol is a drug) & yet not one person cared enough to intervene. Spring & the mud bogs are right around the corner and if you really do care about someone do not let them drink & drive. Even if it means that you have to piss them off by taking the keys, do it! Maybe then you won't find yourself crying at the funeral home & at their grave. By doing this you can prove that you really do care about them!!!

I totally agree with clean and sober. Just maybe if someone had been caring enough to stop them from driving or try to get them to not drink they would still be here. I really hope that their deaths caused at least one or two people to stop drinking. It is so sad that they died from something that could have been prevented.

You're absolutely right..it could have been prevented...but it happened 4 years ago and kids today are still drinking and driving. Let their mistakes go...they arent here to defend themselves

Just let it go. Everyone knows how they died and everybody knows what they were doing was wrong. But, that doesn't make it any less painful for the families and friends they left behind. I wouldn't say I was close with any of them during the time of the accident, but I had been close with them all at one point and it is still extremely hard to deal with the fact that they are gone. I wish everybody could have experienced that next day at B-UHS. It was heartbreaking. The school was silent, all day. Nobody was talking in between classes or during classes. If there was any noise at all it was other students sobbing. I know it didn't stop everyone from drinking but, it surely stopped a lot of people from drinking and driving. Including myself. So please keep your ignorance to yourself about these KIDS that made a tragic mistake. You will never understand how much pain the students in this town have gone through. Be considerate.

Why does it matter? Nobody is trying to hide what caused the accident. It's apparent they drank. Why try to cover it up now?

Obviously we all know why. They made one bad decision..a fatal one. Show me one person who hasn't made a bad decision or a wrong choice and you may have a point. No,not every bad choice ends in death,but im sure they weren't thinking theirs would either. Just let it go...

Why is it that everyone on here keeps acting like it's no big deal that four girls died because not one person in their circle of "friends" cared enough to step in & say enough. I really had hoped that after that terrible weekend people would start working on making things better & that everyone would focus on really talking to the area kids & making them realize that the next time someone makes a bad decision, well it could be them to die next. Instead, all we have is a bunch of people who either glorify the fact that the girls were party-hogs with repeat citations for underage drinking or else people who really don't think that anything is going to change. It won't change until everyone starts making it change. Start talking to the kids & talk to them until you are blue in the face & make them realize that bad decisions can & will get you killed.

Seriously, have some respect for these girls. It's the anniversary of the tragic accident, and all some can do is sit around and bash the image of others? What if that was your sister, cousin, friend, daughter or have any connection with them whatsoever how would you feel if you read all the negative things about them? Think about it. You nor anyone else will understand what went on unless you were in their shoes. Posting negative things about these girls only hurts their loved ones more, than they need to go through, so please be an adult an act as one should, be courteous and mindful of others feelings. You have no right to judge.

it's kind of sad really not that these girls died but that people cant let it go it was four years ago and I understand immediate friends and family would still be hurting that's to be expected we've all lost loved ones but you cant keep digging at shit like this. What about the countless others that have died tragically in this town since then I dont see people bringing them up on a daily basis huh? what about two years ago when aarron bedlam 8 years old died of cancer? who knows him? who would like to talk about him or what about just last year when two children were killed in a hit and run I don't see any bumper stickers on cars for them or the man that was mugged on main street and stabbed five times I dont hear anyone saying a kind word for him the truth of the matter is some kids got in a car drunk they crashed, they died end of story most of the people who talk about it probably didnt even them they just want another bandwagon to jump on. I am against drinking and driving, but I am also against morons who like to hear theirselves talk. my heart goes out for the parents of the families who lost their children

I guess what others want is the same thing that I hoped for. I really had hoped that a good friend or family member of at least one of the girls would come forward & start talking to everyone, especially kids, about the importance of not drinking & driving. You all are right, the girls are dead & nothing is going to bring them back. How about instead of allowing them to die in vain we all try to make their tragedy do some good? What if every single one of their friends were to take a pledge & say that "because of (Lindsay, Hannah, Shasta, Anna) I promise to never drink & drive. I also promise that I will stop my friends from doing that too."

I think that would be a great way to honor their memories.

You are obviously clueless. A banner was signed when high schoolers pledged that in 2008. Have any of the other teen deaths been from drinking and driving since? Yeah didn't think so And have you heard of Anna's Hope? Donna did some speaking at nearby school.

people just like to run thier mouths... if i was one of the parents of any of these girls i would just ignore these stupid comments. its not like the person who wrote it is strong enough to say it to anyones face (probably fear what would happen) evidently they are living in the past and cant let a grudge go that even though these girls lived a short life, they LIVED while they could.

I have spoken with the family of one of the girls & they, too, were upset at the fact that so many people saw how drunk the girls were & didn't try to stop them from driving. Also, I have heard of Anna's hope & I think that it is wonderful. I also think that it would be great to have the area teens take part every single year! For some it would be a new promise & for others, a renewal..either way, it's a win/win for the area teens.

I just don't want to see any more young people die this way.

If she had earned the truck rather than her mother buying it for her she probably would have taken better care of it and used better judgement.
