i was there.
and i think its wrong that people are talking about this, just leave it alone. all of you people who like reading tragidies to make yourself feel better need to let this one be.
we are only children.
there wasnt even a party.
there was nothing.
but fire.

Everyones focus now should be on praying for the girls recovery. One of the girls is a very close family friend and my thoughts and focus have been on praying for her survival and recovery. Kids make silly decisions and mistakes as part of growing up and sometimes they can be costly. Lets not judge unless of course any of you were the perfect child.

Lets hope some good comes from this tragedy. Spread the word to all of your friends and schoolmates so the same thing doesnt happen again to someone else!

leaving it "alone" doesnt help others learn that playing with fire will get you burned.

My daughter is good friends with Julia and I just want to let her know she is in our thoughts and prayers.
To all of you girls who were there and had to
experience such a horrific event; I know who all of you are, and I just want to send our loving support your way.

To Michelle & Julia, my thoughts and prayers are with you as well as the other girl who was burned. To everyone who hears of this, just pray and spread the word that gasoline and fire can be "deadly". Do NOT judge these kids, it's not your job to judge...just be there for them, maybe throw a fund raiser together, but if you are not helping, stay out of it! A far-away friend.

I agree that our focus now should be caring about and for all the girls involved and their families. It was a awful, tragic event. A mistake in judgement was made (perhaps in ignorance). We have all made what turns to be, in retrospect, bad decisions. The difference is that the consequences of our decisions are rarely as horrible as what happened here. This week I have seen the friends of the girls come together and support each other in a way we adults should emulate. The community needs to keep everyone affected in their thoughts and prayers.

Making bad decisions comes with being this age. We have all done things that in hindsite are DUMB. Don't judge what these girls did. Prayers to all of you involved.

Julia our prayers are with you and your family. Be Brave
