Reading your posts I tend to think that you consider yourself a poor, ugly social outcast. The reason this is being made a bigger topic in the news is because they were teenagers about to transission into adulthood but they will never get that chance. I know myself when I hear news like this about teens I find it more touching than other stories. I guess that is because I have children that has past their teen years and I can only know how I would feel as a parent in that situation.

I'm glad you are talking to your kids. But like I said... the likelihood that teenagers are reading this is slim to none. I just feel that this should be a place where people can share their memories about Lyndsey and Kyle and share their condolences for the families.
If parents are here posting, then maybe it will get them to talk to their kids. I will not apologize for wanting to save lives with the click of a seat belt.

Honestly, and I hate to admit it, but my kids remind me everytime I get in the car with them, or they with me, to buckle up.

I have talked to my kids already. Did so last year when the kids from Olentangy died too. Can't be reinforced enough, obviously. All the people on here apparently do NOT know about the importance of seat belts. If they did we wouldn't be having this discussion. My concern also comes from having worked on a trauma unit and seeing the devastation caused by accidents like this. so, take it however you want, but I want ALL teens to buckle up, not just my own.

It's not your job to want all teens to buckle up. Honestly, my daughter is at the point where it is a habbit to put it on, yet not everyone is that fortunate, and who's to say that when she is a teen she chooses not to wear it as an attempt to defy me. Things happen and always will...who do you blame when the teens were belted in and still met their demise??

I'm not 'pointing fingers' at anybody. I don't care if they wanted the attention or not (although I'm sure they would love the fact that they're the center of attention). Look, you said yourself you barely knew them. So how can you come on here and say what great people they were? I was making a point that we have turned these two kids into heroes. For what? For making a mistake. Because they were young and beautiful. Meanwhile, as a society, we ignore the poor and ugly, who suffer worse tragedies (man beaten to death in his home). Similarly, someone mentioned the Olentangy teen, who was shot harassing a shut-in at his home. Everybody boo-hooed over the poor little rich girl while the social outcast was villified. That's a fault of you and your ilk, and society at large. And I'll point my fingers where I d**n well please.
I knew them, but was not close with them. And even if I didn't know them, I could tell that they were great people by the hundreds who came to support them and their families the night after they died. And it's a fault of mine and and my ilk? Yeah... you're so right... I was the one that wrote all the articles and made the news clips about them. You can think whatever the hell you want about me based on where I am from. Because I don't let people like you offend me. Obviously, you are ashamed of yourself and are putting "people like me" on a pedestal, so that's your own fault. We have done nothing to make it seem like we are "better" than anyone else. We are just mourning the loss of two teenagers from our community. I would appreciate if you would not judge me based on where I live and what ill thoughts you have about "people like me" that you have created based on your own failures.

I came on here to write to Lyndsey and Kyle and tell them how much they will be missed, but soon came to find that there are SO many people out there who are bitter about their own lives. Apparently, coming on sites like these, criticizing and making disgusting assumptions about people you wouldn't know from Adam, let alone teenagers, makes you feel better. And I feel sorry for you. I wish you could have known Kyle and Lyndsey, maybe they could have taught you something about life. Rest In Peace Kyle and Lyndsey.

My comments were not directed towards the news coverage. I actually think the news does a decent enough job of covering most deaths. My beef is with the commenters here trying to make everything a tragedy. As I've said before, people dying while behaving recklessly is not tragic. It should almost be expected. Those kids made a choice to speed on curvy back country roads. They made a mistake, the paid the ultimate price. Unless it was a fault of a bad brake pedal (the car was a Toyota), they were behaving stupidly. Not a tragedy. Tragedy is when you have somebody not behaving stupidly, who becomes a victim of another's stupidity. Kids being killed by drunk drivers. Innocent bystanders struck by drive by shooters. Even people who fall victim to faulty mechanics. But this story, this story is a lesson to everyone else: NO JACKASSERY BEHIND THE WHEEL!
It hasn't been proven that they were speeding. The accident is still under investigation. Did you not speed when you were a teen? or even now? I think everyone on here is being very hypocritical. You can't tell me that you have never sped or never not worn your seatbelt.

Katie, that is not the point...the point is for everyone to learn from this accident and to behave in a more responsible manner.

I was good friends with both lyndsey and kyle. I have known kyle since we were 5. This has been a very hard time for me and all of our friends and we appreciate all of the support but the messages about the seat belts need to stop. We all understand that this might have been prevented if they had been wearing them but no one knows if it would have saved them and no one has the right to pass judgement.
So you want to silence those who are trying to keep something like this from happening again by advocating seat belt use? I would think if you were feeling what you say, you would want to prevent anyone else from going through that pain if you could prevent it. Those people here who are saying to wear your seat belt are trying to do just that. And you want them to be quiet?

You obviously don't understand what I am trying to defend here. I am not saying that is not something we ALL shouldn't learn from. What I am saying is that these kids who lost their lives should not be criticized for they were doing that night. No one will ever know what was going on in that car except them and God. So, everyone needs to stop making assumptions. This TRAGEDY, yes Mobberelli I said tragedy, has taught me so much... like I said I'm 19 and I wake up every morning now and thank God for one more day on this earth. I am really not arguing with you... I'm defending Kyle and Lyndsey from the other inappropriate posts that are being left on here.

I thought I read in the article that speed was a factor. And yes, I sped when I was a teen, drove drunk, high, distracted, and did incredibly stupid things, and it's by the grace of God that I'm still here today. Every time I read about kids dying behind the wheel, it makes me that much more thankful it wasn't me. Today, the first thing I do when I get in a car is put my seatbelt on. I do not speed, do not tailgate, I am so cautious behind that wheel I'm sure I p*ss a lot of other drivers off. But that's kind of my point here. I'm fed up with hearing about children dying because of stupidity. Whether or not you knew them, this story should cement this in your head: Be careful, VERY careful, behind that wheel, and in all that you do. I don't want to read a story about Katie, or any other teen dying doing something dumb.

LOL @ who cares. If that 15 year old was driving, you watch the parents of the 18 year old sue that family.

Sad as it is, this is true. They are investigating so that they can determine which family is going to have to fork out the funds.

Wow, I'm ignorant?? Yet you feel sorry for a cared for and loved little girl that wears her seatbelt and has a mother that is intelligent enough to realize that once she is older she is probably going to sneak and try not to wear it. You must be one of those parents that live in the denial of "my child would never do that". I hope you never get that rude awakening.

I understand that, and think that this should be something everyone should learn from. I just don't think this is the place for people to do it. If you're a parent, talk to your own kids. I'm sure any decent parent has already talked to their kids about Kyle and Lyndsey, I know mine already have. That's just my opinion. It's just hard to come on something like this where you are expecting to people saying they are praying for them, or praying for the families, and how much they will be missed... not about what they should or should not have been doing.
