EVERYONE IS THIS CHAT ROOM NEEDS TO STOP RUNNING THERE MOUTH ABOUT MY FRIEND AMY. SHE DID NOTHING WRONG TO ANYONE SHE WAS HARMLESS AND SHE WAS THE BEST PERSON YOU COULD HAVE EVER MET. SO WHAT IF SHE MAY HAVE PICTURES ON HER MYSPACE OF HER DRINKING AND MAYBE SMOKING ITS LIFE. EVER KID DOES IT BELIEVE IT OR NOT AND YOU HAVE TO, DONT EVEN DENY IT. THE HIPPY DAYS AN STUFF. PLEASEEE! THIS WHOLE ACCIDENT WASNT EVEN HER FAULT. SHES NOT THE ONE TO BLAME. DAWN AMY'S MOM GAVE A WONDERFUL SPEECH AT THE WAKE AND TOLD US KIDS TO THINK BEFORE WE ACT AND I THINK THESE DEATHS ARE TRYING TO PROVE SOMETHING. YOU DONT THINK US KIDS ARE AWARE OF WHATS GOING ON!! WE ARE. NO NEED TO CALL US DUMB, OR IGNORANT OR WHATEVER THE CASE MAYBE. DONT CRITIZE OR MAKE JUDGMENT OF SOMEONE WHEN YOU DONT EVEN KNOW THEM!!
THANKS TO ALL YOU MISSUNDERSTOOD PEOPLE!
Listen my Dear:

I am a mother of a child who was Amys friend as well. I know for a fact that she did drugs as well as her friends and my child. I have done everything in my power to get my child to stop. You kids dont know how you are destroying your familiies!!!! Perscription drugs can kill as well, Mike was on XANAX Bars and alcohol, when the two are mixed this can become lethal!!!! Just becuse they are cheap does not mean they are safe. To whoever is selling these drugs to these kids I hope you have some guilt and remorse. Amys family and her friends are suffering. To all those who did drugs after her death in her honor shame on you thats not what she would want from you. I DONT want to see any more of you die from Centereach we are up to four kids this summer alone. Find something else to do besides drugs you are ruiing your lives and those around you. Beleive it or not we as adults care about ALL of you. Stop the nonsens out of respect for Amy. Poor Mkes family has been traumatized as well, he did a stupid thing. Parents if you know your kid is doing drugs do all you can to stop them before its too late. You cant help them after they turn 18 because they have rights LOL. Buy home drug kits off line and test them often. I do!!! It helps to let them know they will be tested often. I am in this situation right now and scared for my life but my kid knows that he will be tested and for now it seems to have stopped. I love my kid too much to watch this. No other family should have to go through the death of a child. Kids think twice before you do things and know that you are loved and there are people out there who care and are willing to help. If you need help ASK someone will help. Lets not loose another child in Centereach. I am afraid every day that this will happen. This is no way to live. Amy was a good kid who got involved with the wrong things as well as Mike. Now at 19 he has ruined his entire life and destroyed Amys family for what??? To feel a little high.

All of you people talking negative and blaming it on drugs should really shut up,Yes amy did some drugs but everybody experiments..to this day that is never anything wrong with a goood ol joint or whatever this kids smoke now a days,the lesson is choose your decisions Cafefully because they may be your last,but then again every minute can you be your last too ?so i say dont blame the drugs or amy herself,i knew amy very well she was a friend of my daughters,yes she was troubled but arent we all troubled ? Alora williams was also kids so parents ? instead of blaming the drugs why not blame yourself think ? are you guys such shitty parents that your kids turn to drugs?

Hard to believe that you are an adult, let alone a parent. You write like a 10 year old.

Since when is doing coke and heroin compared to "a good ol joint now and then" ???

Your daughter should find a new group of friends to hang out with...one's that live past their 18th birthday would be nice. Friends that don't attent night school because they got kicked out of regular school, friends without arrest records, friends that have better things to do than sit around, unemployed, getting high.

THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOU...Hopefully, one of your family members aren't in or in front of a car with someone EXPERIMENTING WITH DRUGS! Whether it be a good ol joint or whatever you think is Ok for them to take and get behind the wheel of a car. Do you see a pattern here? Your daughter is hanging out with the kids that are dieing. My opinion, stop making excuses and do something quick or you'll visiting your daughter at a hospital or her grave site soon. OH YEH AND WE'RE THE BAD PARENTS... JACKASS! Rethink what you are saying.

This is exactly the stupid mentality that allows these kids to run wild and do whatever the hell they want. This type of parent should be held responsible if their child hurts someone while driving high. You must really not care about your child to take that lame stance.

I'll say it again...Stop being your kids 'BFF" and start being their parent. It makes me cringe when I see 'parents' acting like their kids so that their kids think they are cool...How cool are you going to feel, when your child is maimed or even worse, in a grave site. Please all you 'cool' parents....BE PARENTS!!! so that someday you can be Grandparents....

Maybe you should have tried to help your "Babygirl" while she was alive instead of being by her side and partying with her. Instead of saying how amazing she was...you could have been saying how amazing she IS!! Instead of her lighting up the sky, she could have been lighting up a room. Stop partying!!! Think about the consequences of your actions and don't be someone else's precious angel before your time.

Its not because were teenagers and we use druggs.
its peoples stupid desisions. not ours.
i just lost my best friend in a car accident on july 8th 2008. and all you "parents" think its our fault. it wasnt alora's fault it was the asshole she was driving with fault. it wasn't julian's or danielle's fault either. it was all marco's fault and i hope he gets what he deserves for killing my best firned.

and i could care less to what the parents think of teenagers we do what we want and really saying something to us isnt gonna help, its not gonna change us. dont try to change us.

the problem is the parents that made us this way.
remember it was your parenting akills that make us this way.

and for everyone knows yes i have not learned i live how i wanna live its my life not yours.

Rest In Peace My Angel. < / 3
