I participated in the walk...why?? because I knew Cierra and I also know the family...to support them in their quest to get the information out about what is going on in this town and many others around us!! It is a shame that some ppl can bash others and all this is about is helping OTHERS and to help get the message out about the dangers of just trying things once!! I am so sorry that you all (Cierra's family and friends) have to read and hear the stupid comments that some ppl make when they must not have a clue!!

Thanks Lynn, the people who say these things either don't know what they are talking about or they are trying to torment people. They are not worth anyones time.

Why come here and argue with the idiots in the first place? You accomplish nothing and feed their desire for online conflict.

It is very sad that a child was snorting heroin and died, but I would rather paticipate in a memorial walk for a child who had a will to live and fought so hard for their life but some horrible disease, such as cancer, took their life. I would rather see my money go to this cause rather than to a family who lost a child to drugs. My heart goes out to her and her family but she knew the consequences of doing drugs.

It's easy for someone to hide behind a false name and say really ignorant, hurtful things. The sad truth is there are so many kids doing drugs in Batesville and everywhere. Families are being destroyed by drugs and they don't need hurtful comments such as these from cowards. So as the saying goes, if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all especially when you don't know what you are talking about. Also might be nice if you learned how to properly write a sentence.

You are so right about drug addiction of young people being an epidemic. Maybe it will get bad enough that people will get angry and demand a law mandating the death penalty for drug dealers. They not only kill people, they destroy lives.

We have never received a penny from the walks, the walks are done to make people aware of drug problems, what to look for and what treamtment options there are. We would never profit from the loss of my daughter, wow people are really uncaring and purposely cruel. I hope you never loose a child to drugs, people will be cruel to you too remember that.

I see you wish to continue arguing with the idiots on here. They throw out the bait and you swallow it, hook, line and sinker.

Let the idiots play their games, don't feed them.

Great minds talk about ideas. Average minds talk about the weather. Small minds talk about other people.

I bet you will be right back here though, taking the bait the next time the idiots throw it out. If you wish to continue to come here and patiipate in the crap, you deserve what you get.

Wait until something happens to one of your loved ones and see if it doesn't hurt you to see people saying bad things about them that are not true, then you can tell yourself you deserve it idiot.
thank you

People should be thanking you for the awareness that you are trying to get out there. Some people that have children with a drug problem really don't know where to turn. Even if they have a place to turn, the person has to WANT the help. It has to be hard to loose a child, no matter what the situation is. Some parents don't know the signs of drug use and a little education won't hurt anyone. Not to mention that when you are dealing with someone that has a drug problem, they will lie and do what ever they can to get the next fix. So yea it just may help someone to know what options are out there to get a loved one some help.

If something happens to someone dear to me, I sure as hell won't be on here arguing with a buch of idiots about what happened. And I sure as hell don't care what idiots think.
