You have a serious problem.
If you can't talk to your parents then by all means, if you are in school, please talk to your school counselor or nurse first thing in the morning.
You so desperately need someone to talk to and the sooner the better.
Please take my advice and get the help you need. PLEASE.

Hey , If you will read the comment again ,if you can read, It was a sarcastic remark. I do not think they are thugs. I've never met the boys. I went on to say that everyone makes a mistake. In school thats why teacher's make you tell the reasoning of a story. She wants to see if you are comprehending what you read. I can tell by your remark that you didn't.
you dont make sarcastic remarks over the death of loved ones... thats soo far from messed up its not even funny.. people get mad because people make 'sarcastic remarks' when they are not needed! soo some of you are suppost to be adults.. well yall dont have half the commen sence god gave a leaf..... soo just think about wat 'sarcastic remarks' you make on public forums about young boys loosing there lives... thank you

my heart goes out to each and every family and I will keep you all in my prayers. we are not perfect only the Good Lord and he will watch over your family and he knows what we all are going thru and these kids were being kids. the Lord will take care of them and protect them.the mean people better wake up cause they have kids growing up and its not the age anymore of how old someone dies so they better just watch out if they have kids or not.

I have read again that some young people have lost their lives due to speeding and not wearing seat belts. I don't know if we will ever be able to convince the kids that cars are not toys. Thinking of all the families.

What in the World.... Thanks. I hope I had an influence on his life. He was a fun loving boy.
And to those of you using the vulgar language trust me you can get your point across without the language. I understand you are all hurt. He was my nephew and I am hurting too. I have a lot of choice words that I would like to say and some of them were used right after we found out. I recieved a phone call about 15 minutes after it happened. I had to be the one to call my husband who was there when JT was born and tell him that his nephew had been killed in a car crash. Trust me I understand hurt. JT is only one of the people I have lost this year and everyone of the losses hurt just as bad. 2008 has not been good to us but as you grow up you will understand how to get your point across so people will listen. Right now you are young and angry at the world for taking your friends so young. It hurts and it doesn't go away. It affects you for the rest of your life. Make sure you get the help you need in dealing with it. Trust me I know first hand. I also lost some friends when I was in high school.
To all of you who think you know what happened in that car... the keyword is THINK. You don't know. You weren't in there. Mack is the only one who can tell us. The police are just putting together the most obvious scenario based on the details of the crash. And no matter what they were doing at the time of the crash doesn't change the fact that they did not deserve to die. It doesn't change the fact that they are sorely missed down here on earth.
Everynight I tuck my little girl into bed and pray that the day never comes when I have to say goodbye. I never drop her off at school without telling her I love her and I never leave the house without telling my husband I love him. If something should ever happen to me I want them to know without a doubt that I loved them. That was the way JT was. Even when I picked him up to take him out to eat he always gave his dad a hug and told him he loved him... ALWAYS.
I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers are being lifted up for you and your family. I can not imagine losing my nephew. Sounds like JT was a wonderful kid.

Kids need to be TAUGHT that every action has a consequence. If their parents do not teach them this, they will need to learn the hard way.

do you ever thnk about wat if theses bots ever read yalls hateful comments about their babies that they lost???? sure they made a mistske but really who ever can say that they have never made a mistake???? think about wat their families are still goin trough and wat if it were your family instead and you were readin these commments

Hey sounds like to me that these kids were thugs. I mean no one is talking about being friends with them or how nice they were. Sounds like maybe people around your town are happy to be rid of them. You know not only do teens drive crazy when the weather is bad, adults do to. Passing in a no passing zone is done everyday. It is done by adults with families and teens that make A's. Yes they made a choice that caused their lives to be taken and could have killed the driver coming from the other direction.They were young and thinking nothing could ever happen to them. To those of you that think your child would Never drive fast or pass in a no passing zone I hope you are never disappointed.
I have a son and I would hate to have to bury him. He drives and we have stressed that a car or truck is not a toy.
My heart goes out to the family of these boys.
JT and geoffrey were amazing people and friends to everyone they knew... i really cant think of anybody that really had a problem with them. the were some or the two most loving people anyone could ever hope to be friends with and you really dont know what your talkin about when you say they were a bunch of thugs and that nobody misses them. losing them was one of the most heart breaking things that has ever happen to them. every one that knew them lost a big peice of their lives on December 15,2008

OMG! I am so glad someone said something about that because I have never seen such poor use of the english language in my life. Obviously the education out there isn't very good since most of the posts from people who know them cannot be comprehended. Really if they want to get their point across effectively on such a serious topic they should stop typing like an elementary student. I am very sorry for their loss and teenagers do make mistakes and no one is perfect. Also I agree that people should not be making hateful remarks about the victims. It is a tragic accident.
its been nine months now and every ones doin better but im pretty sure tha reason the spelling was so bad is because everybdy was so hurt and shakin mad frm all tha comments

its been nine months now and everybodys doin better but theres not a day neither of them are mentioned. im sure the reason all of the spelling was bad is because everyone was either sad and deppressed or shaking mad at all of the remarks on her.

okay. well looking through these comments got me thinking. they weren't gang members. they were teenage boys that had lives and families and friends. yes it was a stupid MISTAKE they made to do something illegal and stupid but everyone makes mistakes and this one happened to cost two boys lives but maybe gods purpose for this wasn't to teach them a lesson(cause their dead now) but to teach everyone that heard the news a lesson. yes it was there mistake but it's terrible what happened and they dont deserve to be told that you dont care and dont feel bad. think to if you had a son or daughter and that same thing happened and died. would you want people saying they dont care he/she died cause it was their fault???? u would defend them saying people make mistakes,he had friends and family. rip jt young.

I loved these 2 boys with all mt heart, well Jt anyways, I didnt know geoffery very well but still Its hard everyday 2 wake up and realize that im not gunna see there faces any more. These 2 boys could light up anyones day and they were just absolutly amazing. JT was 1 of my best friends and i cant think of a day wen i didnt see him smiling just 2 brighten sum1s day. Geoffery was quiet but he was my cousins best friend and i talked 2 him a few times. I never thought that i could lose sumthin that was so close 2 me untill Dec. 15, 2008. That day started out normal and then everything got flipped around. Those boys are deeply loved and missed everyday and theres not a doubt in my mind that they are watching over us...Angels are all around but u never notice it until u stop and think about it....

Talk 2 u on the other side JT, I Love u and miss u forever more
