I sit here reading all of people's comments about a child they don't know, adults they don't know, and a situation they don't know. I have known this young man and have heard all about the life he has led over many years. Children are products of their upbringing. If you give a child love and teach them right from wrong all will usually go well. Dillian has a good heart but is still finding his way. Without good role models it takes some time....

how dare ANYONE that says anything hateful or mean about dillian's accident.
none of you know the story,the investigation,the family and the pain of personally seeing dillian in a hospital bed holding on for his life.
He's a good hearted kid to the people he loves,he takes no crap from anyone,he's so funny and so fun to be around.
fuck off to any of you that do not know DILLIAN. accidents happen, how can you say anything other to a sixteen year old boy that has so much life,that was getting a summer job,going back to school, "i hope you get better" i pray for the your health and your recovery"
which he WILL, god's givin him mercy and healing.
dillian will recover and be the same dillian,
and any of you that think different can keep your opinions to yourselves if they are negative about the dillian charles will love and have stood beside.

and id love to see ANY of you walk up to his family and say ANYTHING stupid about dillian.

You defend opinionated maggots that the world could do without. Anyone that makes light of something like this should be removed from the planet.

Dumb Kid + Gun = Tragedy
The mother should have had it in a locked safe. Kids think they are invisible. They don't think that something like this can happen. Very tragic!
You don't mean invisible OR invincible. Was he FIGHTING the gun ?

Try INVULNERABLE.

What a dope that guy is. When a gang of crack heads kicks down his door, lets see how far he gets with his "Louisville Slugger". Also he corrects others grammar, but tell me, how do you "loose" a family member?

What the hell is wrong with all of you,why cant everyone just shut up,instead of talking shit about dillian and running your mouth why arent you praying for him,he made a mistake,everyone does.So why are you all judging him,he isnt stupid or dumb,dillian is a great friend,he was always so fun to be around.Its hard enough for his family and friends as it is then to have to read all the bullshit you immature people are saying,Honestly if you have nothing nice to say about him then just shut the fuck up
Be Strong Dillian,You Will Be Okay
