I truly have heartfelt sympathy for the 2 teens that died. This could have happened to most teens during my teenage years while living in Metter. My concern is when will our youth wake up. The youth of the comunity had a drinking party after the funeral in honor of the teens. Are we truly raising idiots in this town and where is our cops at. They know who is selling drugs and alcohol but nothing is being done. I also don't understand why we are honoring the teens with a scholorship in there name when if they had loved they would have benn going to court the next week for stealing stops signs. Can someone expain this to me, Please

First and foremost you need not call someone and idiot, because your grammar and spelling shows all who read these words you fall head first in the idiot category. Secondly the way the teenagers
have been struck around this community maybe it will make a differance in their lives and from the signs I have seen already it has. But the real answers lie ahead of us all. Instead of negative attitudes which I have seen plenty of in this community (such as yours) maybe you need to ask yourself what difference can I make. As far as the scholarship fund you don't have to contribute but I know who's running this and it may be your loved one who needs some extra something for college, would'nt you feel real bad when someone walks up to them and helps them out? I know I would but maybe I have a heart and yes I was very close to these teenagers they were'nt the model citizens but were we? Always remember GOD answers prayers and maybe this is a calling for us all to do alot of rethinking our own lives instead of everyone else's. G.A.P.

My apologies for my typing the fact remains we do not honor the memory of the teens by encouraging the actions that brought them harm. Come on a drinking party in honor of there deaths. Yes some of us were model citizens. Some of us have never set foot in court. Some of us have never smoked or drank anything illegal. Some of us are trying to mold our kids into not doing the things that killed the teens. Hopefully and I would think you would agree that maybe this is a lesson.

well if I were you I would get my facts stright first there is nothing saying that drinking killed thease to teens. it did say that it could have been a factor but nothing has been proven that it was. also no I did not agree with the party but we the parents did not have the party or did I even know about it untill a few days after. So if I were you I would watch what I said and make sure that I had my facts right becouse no matter what I loved my child just as I'm sure that you love yours (if you have any) and the other thing is why would you hurt us like we are not hurtting enough.I also want you to know that 7 teens have been saved through all of this. So now I know that my childs dying was not in vain.

My apologies for your pain. Please don't read my post as they are not meant to hurt you. I however am comenting on the actions of our youth not the situation and the actions of our community. Underage drinking has always been a problem in our town. You should know that. Drinking and high speeds were invoved. Please don't be blind. Yet the youths of the comunity did not see this as a wake up. If your family would like to help and honor the deaths push for tougherlaws in Candler county on selling of alcohol to minors. Make proactive contributions to stop drinking and driving. I was disapointed that the bracelets had nothing on them to discourage drinking and driving. If you fell so strongly that your child was not drinking during this tragedy then do something to discourage high speed driving. Just make sure that the death of your child is honored positively and not in a fashion such as the drinking party.Once again I truly feel sympathy for your lose.

I had not a thing to do with the drinking party as I said before I new nothing about the party until it was over and the kids who had the party know that I did not like it either, but the party was not at my house or did it have anything to do with me because if it was up to me it would have never happened. As for the bracelets I did not put anything about drinking and driving because it is still not a proven fact that alcohol was involved in this accident. As for the speed, yes that was a major contributor to the accident. As far as I can see we can keep wasting time sending each other these emails that don't mean nothing to anyone else or we can do our best to spread it to the community as we are trying desperately to do but the problem still seems to be parents afraid to pull the chain tight because they are afraid of the consequenses it would cause. They are afraid it would put a hault to their own fast paced lifestyle. What does it hurt? There just being kids. These are comments I have heard many times in the past before this tragedy. But stand up and say that when it's you're son, daughter,neice, nephew, or whoever it may be lying in that casket. Sure I lay there every night thinking of things that this community could do to prevent this from happening again but the last time I checked the dictionary a community is made up of more persons than just one so let's see what we can do as a community not as a single person. Remember strength is in numbers. God Bless.

My dear I have stood toe to toe with those responsible for selling alcohol to minors. I have walked the path you walk now. And you are right there is strength in numbers. My efforts are futile with the administrations that we have in place. I know this happened when I was in school there are ways around everything. But I will continue the fight with or without anyones help. My hope was that you could join the fight for tougher laws and enforcement along with the education of the kids. Right now you have the momentum on your side because of your tragedy. Alcohol may have not been proven but it is what was percieved as the cause. I emplore yu to bring the fight to those that are suppose to uphold the law and take the miss guided and show them what can happen. You have become the inspiration whether you like it or not. You shall not have to worry about me commenting again on this subject to you for I can see it pains you. My apologies for upsetting you.

Eric Story may have been drinking that night, but he still did not deserve to die. I was with EMS that night we were called out there. It was said that Shack died on instint impact. While we tried for four hours to get Story out that truck. He was a great student, and an amazing friend. Who WAS presured into drinking that night...he lost control of the vehicle when he slid and crashed into a wooded area two minuted from my house. I will miss him, he was my BEST friend....and he WILL be missed...

This accident is heartbreaking. My sadden for the families is overwhelming. Writing the what if's and the went went on's is so hurtful. My own Daughter was involved in an accident, she was hit by a drunk driver. She was not killed but fought for her life for weeks. She is not the same but has recovered by learning to walk again and by the help of many surgeries she is beautiful again. I too read many comments like those above. Listened to the rumors and the assumed facts of the accident, My daughter was the only person at the accident without alcohol or drugs in her system, those were the facts medically, but not what i had to read in the ignorant postings. Please, Leave these families in peace. These children were loved by their families, held and cuddled, loved without end. My prayers are with the families.
