I was born to parents who were not married when social norms dictated they should have been. I was raised by elderly relatives who died when I was quite young & I saw them suffer. All of this happened before I was 13. I lived with multiple family dynamics going on between several households, not always having a father figure, none were educated, poverty was rampant & I was molested and nearly raped more than once.. Rather than wallow in self-pity I took responsibility for myself because the adults in my life were messed up or old & sick ( which was beyond their control ). I have gone on to do wonderful things for others, obtained a graduate level degree & have many successes to show for my good choices. That little girl has been through a lot but knowing what I KNOW FROM HER FAMILY has not been through NEARLY what I went through as a young girl. The difference is I never tried to kill anyone & believe this child needs serious & continued help for she is troubled & now marked due to her CHOICES. I also believe this matter should have been handled more privately so as to not pour even more gasoline on an already volatile situation for a family "in need" of support. Maybe the original poster did & freaked out due to the seriousness of the matter & concern for her child and others. Obviously, I do not know. Having said all this, although I feel sorry for what they have all been through, I would be very concerned about the child & cautious due to the CHOICES she made! Some of us with less support and more tragedy chose differently & I HOPE she does in the future.
I could have agreed with what you said if you hadn't peppered it with "My life was so much worse and I turned out so much better". You can't compare your life with others' until you've lived their lives. You made many good observations in your statement, but you should have been less subjective and a little more objective. We all have our crosses to bear, some heavier than others, but the weight of the cross is relative to the person bearing it.

I know a lot about her situation as Ive known the family for many years. I peppered it as I did because I chose to not try to kill people & chose to make my life better despite bad people who were in control of my life. I feel tremendously for her as I can truly empathizes for her situation probably more than most can. I agree with the weight of the cross relative to the person bearing it but that is also a nice little way of allowing those old enough to know better an escape goat to behave outrageously. All said, I hope this young girl becomes stronger with every day & goes on to do wonderful things. I was not being mean for the sake of being mean just saying she was old enough to know better & know she has had good people she could have turned to rather than doing what she did! I stand by my sentiments. Also, much like Mr. Ethan Self, other options were available. I'm all about responsibility & not excuses! You have your opinion & I have mine.

Copper, looks like it might be a good idea for you to go back to the 3rd grade and start over, based on your posts. It is hard for me to listen to anything you say when I can simply read your posts and conclude you are a simpleton.

unwed parents, grandparents died, poor & ALMOST raped...in appalachia? Oh the horrors! nobody has ever seen such tragedy & lived to tell it. How on earth have you managed to do such great & wonderful things for others? Give me a break.

I am a sophomore at SG, and I haven't ever even heard about this. I think that if it was an issue or if this student was of any threat to anyone at SG that Dr. Bowman, Mrs. Broyles, or RC Brown would take care of it.

To this individual, whomever you may be, you don't deserve this forum. I will pray for you. I know that words hurt. Stay strong!(:

God forgave this child? Are you saying god speaks to you? thats the only way you could of known that god forgave her is if he told you himself, Please go to your doctor and tell him what youve told us, that god speaks to you and then get back to us.

She's a really nice girl and before you start talking shit get to know some one first. You don't know her or what kinda home she came from. What If her dad beat on her and she got sick of it? Think before you say something

Anyone who has had to kill knows that you lose a piece of yourself everytime making it easier to kill each time after, this is very common amongst war veterans that dont like talking about it, same goes more so if the individual is doing it to friends or family, people that they have a strong connection to, if you can kill a sibling than whats stopping you from killing people you dont know? Often serial killers kill people at random and people they dont know, it makes it easier when they dont have a mental attachment to the victim upon killing them. Ive studied serial killers and their behavior a long time, she may be ok now, but she will need therapy rest of her life and medicines to help keep that inner demon locked away, but when that demon does comes out, dont say i didnt tell you so.

Do you really think any of the faculty at SGHS would step in and intervene. Get real Class of 2016, they only want to work their 7 hour days, 9 months a year and be done with all of the kids. Times are getting tougher for kids....everyone of you need to start watching your back. Years ago it was just a hair-pulling fight in the bathroom, now it is knives and guns you have to worry about.

There are some teachers who actually care about the kids. Sure you have some that are just there for themselves but a true teacher loves their kids and would be there for them. The rules have changed so much that teachers barely have time to teach let alone be able to communicate with their students and get to know them. Good teachers have gotten a bad wrap because of stupid people. I praise those teachers that do care.
