Umm, good for you. I've been to 6 countries. I won't go into details, but what I will say is this--you trying being a closeted homosexual going to a place that you feel like you'd be judged by everyone. To this day there are still college friends that don't know--why, you ask? Because of judgement. It was a bubble because I felt as if there wasn't anyone I could turn too--other than God. I went to the Naz because I felt lead too, but I didn't realize the struggle it would turn out to be...enough said.<quoted text>
I do not feel like I live in a bubble at ALL! I love being a student on this campus and I am very thankful that the staff here cared enough to let us know we were all SAFE when we as students were hearing so many random and scary rumors, that just hearing from our leaders left me with some peace of mind. As for you feeling like you lived in a bubble while you were here, that is completely your fault because you probably didn't participate in anything or at least very little things on campus. I personally have been to 4 different countries, have participated in so many extra curriculars i have to cut back on them, and been in multiple leadership roles that prepare me for my future job, and devoted my summers to a traveling ministry through this campus that changed my life. I have never felt more free or enlightened or loved then when I am here at school and surrounded by my family here.

There is nothing self righteous about admitting you did something wrong. That's called humility. We've all done it and will do it again. It takes a very mature person to admit it. We don't realize that a simple remark can become headline news in a short time. This person had no idea what was going to happen and obviously trusted whoever he told these things. So watch who you're calling self-righteous unless you can honestly say you've never repeated something that you heard.

No more comments? It's only been 5 months... I guess not everybody is still thinking about the incidence every hour of every day. So, just to be sure, everyone got there two cents in? I'm so happy for you. I'm glad you said everything you had to say, but just know there are still some who have not been able to get out all of their thoughts yet. And, be reminded, that some of these thoughts are brought on by all your lovely comments such as... One less weak-minded moron, blame the parents, blame the girlfriend, just someone else taking the easy way out... Here's a big F**K YOU!

I had largely avoided this whole thing but finally broke down and read some of the comments on here and really would like to make clear one thing.
I was a friend of Mike's and for those of you who have gone on and on and on saying things like "did no one see the signs? where were his friends? did no one ever ask if he was ok?" You should know that there were plenty of people who loved Mike. I am one of them. And to answer your rather careless assumptions: NO, we did not just let him "slip through the cracks" and never check up on him. There is plenty of guilt and regret that none of us successfully stopped him but never should ANYone think even for a second that he was just "left to his fate". Did it ever occur to anyone that despite the fact that we failed we just might have put everything we had into caring for him? Or that this just might have sort of DEVASTATED us? Or that we will live with that guilt for the rest of our lives? Or replay over and over again how things might have gone if we had just done this or that differently....
Seriously, if you don't know what you are talking about, just don't say anything (especially in reference to some of your ignorant comments about the girlfriend- you don't know her. Stop pretending like you do.)
Some of us are still suffering greatly even now that his death isn't the latest piece of news to gossip about. Not that anyone even cares enough to read this anymore.
