Play with the bull & you get the horns. Now for the rest of your lives (the survivors) you have a memory that will be burnt into your skulls and you will have to bear witness to it every, single, damn day of your pathetic monkey life. When a teenager learns that they are NOT invincible and that they are not ADULTS, because they don't THINK like one, then maybe, just maybe there will be hope for the future. As for now, you remember that night & you remember it very well. It will haunt you and you will only wish, that you would have never, ever taken that step inside that vehicle. Eternity & death is forever. You at least, will have a few decades before you cease, but you will be haunted. I have no mercy. I have no remorse. I have nothing for you. Your living, will be testament enough. The anguish you suffer will suffice. The pain that you carry deep inside you will do. Remember, you have decades. Your friends, they will have eternity.

As the parent of young boys six and eleven. I am wondering did Paige's parents actually talk to the parents of the girl whose house she was suppose to be staying at that night? I know it is irrelevant at this point; however, it is a point. As parents we must know the children our children associate with and the parents of those children. I realize you have to give your children space to make the right choices, but how far do you go in giving them the responsibility to make the right choice? I pray for Paige and hope her strength through this ordeal.

Do not judge unless you know the whole story. It is VERY possible that Paige did not want and tried not to get in this vehicle.

This is why parents should parent their children instead of trying to be their best friend, buddy or pal. All teenagers will lie. REMEMBER? Hopefully, the rest of us will wake up and realize if your not paying attention your kids will try to slide one over on you.

According to her stepfather, she knew the danger and chose to make the decision to get into the vehicle, although she was not drinking, she still got into the car with them not once but twice that night...

I just want to tell this person that she doesnt know what shes talking about. I'm Paige's cousin and what was she supposed to do? Stay in the middle of no where and wait for a car to drive by? No. I don't think so. The only way she had home was Ryan and what 15 year old thinks that she is going to get in an accident and be paralyzed? Exactly. None. I know when I was 15 I didn't think that. So I think you need to think twice before you say shit like that.

You are filled with way too much anger? Do you think this was done on purpose?

I'm still pissed at your response, it's extremely insensitive! I'm not saying what they did wasn't wrong, but do you think they intended for this to happen? Have you not made your own mistakes in life? What makes you so damn special that you can just come on these sites and spew your venom as if you have never done wrong, I guess you were the perfect kid? this wasn't the time to vent your anger, do you not realize you'll never change a kid! Do not blame the parents, because at some point your half to put some trust in your kids and now a valuable lesson was learned, but don't you come on here and call them monkeys? When your best (and probably only) friend is your computer? How do you think the survivors feel? Especially when they read this? You contribute absolutely nothing to the issue at hand your pompous b%tch, what was gained here? As a parent
you do the best you can, pray for some guidance to help with your kids, but you cannot always be there for them and things do happen, some good, some bad, but for you to immediately come on here all miss high & mighty, you should think about your actions before the action! Your not telling these kids anything they didn't figure out on there own as soon as the accident happened. Maybe if you had taken another approach like alcohol awareness or something, it would be of some use to someone!!!!!

You simply amaze me!!!! I cannot believe or maybe I just would prefer not to believe that people like you even exist! Your response to this was way out of line! How dare you judge anyone for any actions. True it was a very immature mistake on all parts... Children make immature mistakes, everyday, all day! This is a tragedy... and yes something the survivors have to live with everyday of their lives. I would just like to know.... Who the hell do you think you are to basically damn them for a mistake? I'm sorry, did I miss something? Are you God? No, I know your not because you see, God forgives.... maybe you should try that... You are truly the sad case...Oh, and as far as them not thinking like an adult.... You obviously don't either or you would have NEVER posted such a comment.

Majik is living with his or her own guilt. Because he or she is a suvivor with anger. Do not judge this person because they are living with anger of being a suvivor because they too lost someone.

To quickly get this this out of the way, whoever "Deck" is, it is surely a person with that chooses to have an ugly soul - and whose only real problem is the news article was not about him (or her). All that energy to pay attention to this tradgedy, look it up, then make a horrible comment to get a rise out of people. That person deserves no more attention.

My husband and I never met Paige, but had heard of the story and saw a flyer announcing a fundraiser this past Saturday. We stopped by the carwash to make a donation and saw Paige surrounded by family and friends, and God bless her, she had an incredible attitude that was awe-inspiring. We briefly spoke to Paige's dad and I can say I felt immense warmth and caring in his firm handshake. There were teens, little ones, and parents everywhere and there was such an obvious outpouring of love from everyone. By the grace of God, there goes any of us, any of our children.... To add my personal opinion: I think these kids were exactly that - KIDS. When you are young you don't have the life experience to make smart decisions every time.....and you tend to think bad things won't happen to you. That is natural and human. Many of us make mistakes all of the time but are not called to answer for them. Unfortunatley, for whatever reason, Paige and her friends were called to suffer the consequences. I think the best thing here to do is to learn, to pray, to support each other. I know this tragedy is a huge mess, and I pray for everyone involved. There are absolutely no winners. May God bless, protect and comfort the families - all of them. As far as Paige, she seems to have not only an incredible attitude, but a VERY loving and supportive family and network of friends. I truly believe she will come through this.

Losing someone is a tragedy in itself, being the one who survives a tragedy, I am sure is a horrible thing to live with but for you to come back at me,when her response was what it was to those survivors????? Please.... she /he, needs to stop and think about what they are already going through without her/his horrible comments. Sometimes people need to be reminded how horrible they come across. A loss or tragedy in your life is no excuse to take it out on someone else!

Look, just because you "hang" with a family for a couple of years does not make you related... also, I do think that there were 2 choices that night, get in the car, or call someone... unfortunately she chose the first.

Yes, the wrong choice was made... I think that has been determined....but for all of you out there that can't seem to recall ever making a mistake in your life..... Spend some time thinking about your own life for a while... I'm sure that you can come up with something you have done that you wish you wouldn't have... As far as judging what choices were made and mistakes we have ALL made in our lives, how about we leave that to God. He is the true judge, not you or I or anyone else on this earth! Believe it or not, none of us are perfect..... He is!

I have to disagree, even GOD is not perfect, because the worlds not perfect, but that's life and were stuck with it like it or not? I just happen to like it and along the way, the potential is always there for bad things to happened, look back at your life and just think at a few instances where you were very, very close to making a bad decision. I know I've been very close to making mistakes myself, because I am not perfect like "MAJIK DECK"........

Who's to say your any better off driving down the highway (199) doing 65 and someone in a big ass hurry pulls out in front of you? Or someone on a cell phone pulls out in front of you because they were to damn busy talking about nothing that couldn't have waited until they got off the road? These people are the worst drivers out there, and by the way people, if you ever hit me because your talking on the phone, I'll sue you! what about the people putting on MAKEUP, SHAVING, and even READING?!
