I'm sorry to hear about Ryan being in a coma. I will pray for him as I would for any of God's children. Having said that, please know that he is not the innocent angel being portrayed. Ryan consistently bullied my niece in school to a point where she is now seeking help in therapy. His atrocious comments to her (which have been heard by classmates and ignored by the teacher) will be a burden she will have to carry for life. No one had a right to hurt Ryan (anymore than he had a right to hurt my niece), but I can't help but believe that his friends may not be telling the whole truth about what took place that night. I pray that, if he recovers, he will be a kinder person who is more respectful of others.
