Instead of having a bleeding heart, why donít people take just a little time to be careful. Itís incredibly simple and the result (preserving life) is priceless.
Showing compassion to a family that just lost their ONLY child in a senseless accident is not having a bleeding heart.

Showing compassion would be for once, not acting like the @$$ that you are and posting obnoxious comments here where her family and friends might see them.

Showing compassion is for once keeping your mouth shut and instead of sitting in front of your computer just waiting to type a snarky post about the latest auto accident and how stupid and "Darwinian" the driver was, just zip your mouth and go DO something about the whole situation if you think its so bad, whether its actually interacting with people, volunteering or whatever else you deem may educate society, instead of acting like a troll on newsday's topix board.

I for HAVE had face tragedy. I lost my older sister at 35. To me, and a few others here find that there is a growing amount of pure stupidity among the younger people, as well as some people in general. An eight ton truck, in reverse, reverse warning lights and the beeping, ah...hello. Yes it's unfortunate, but if people took their heads out from their rectums and concentrated on what they ARE supposed to be doing at the time, much of these "quirky" accidents would be avoided.
And this is the whole problem with these boards, you don't have all the facts of the situation.

Perhaps the reverse warning lights and beeper weren't working. Perhaps she was too close and got caught in the wheel or mechanical equipment. Perhaps the driver hit reverse instead of drive and hit her. Perhaps she did have on her iPod or was on a cell phone and wasn't paying attention.

The point is, there are more "if's" then facts, and you don't have enough information to pass any sort of judgement, nor should you.

Until all information is brought to light, you should just all remain quiet instead of speculating.
