I'm so saddened to come on here and read all of the things that are being said. I'm not sure if you guys have looked at the topic on the posting but it is about a young girl who has died in a car accident. Not who spells what wrong or how people use words in sentences. It's not about judging people, it is about a young lady named Alora William's who was killed in a car accident. I am not going to agree or disagree with any of you on here for your comments that you have made toward Alora and her family, but what I will do is let you all know that Alora was very close to me and she was a very nice sweet girl who has been to hell and back in her life at such a young age of 14. She has probably been threw more then me and you put together. But again I am not here to pass judgement on anyone for stating their opinion but please if you are going to write on here at least stick to the topix. Nobody is perfect and who are you or I to sit and correct people's mistakes. I hope you all have a wonderful day!
Please tell us what made her life like hell so we can understand. Otherwise, we must assume she had problems just like everyone else. It’s too bad she got killed and I would like to understand.

Writing skills are fairly important when you want to convey a message and be taken seriously. My general rule of thumb is that if someone can’t take the time to write well then I can’t take the time to consider their opinion. There’s no excuse for being illiterate. Typos are understandable, but some of the garbage is inexcusable.
While we’re on the topic. You should have written “through” and not “threw” as well as “than“ instead of “then“.

Have a nice day and drive safely.

But will "D" be covered under C (can you change it to all of the above ... and below?) If so, I vote C.
Thanks for asking Ted. I didn’t start this poll nor am I keeping count. The Old “C” should now be “D” and “C” should now have the crackhead label. You’ll be safe no matter what because wither way you’re implying that she’s nuts.

This here is what we call a flounce. It has all of the key ingredients of a good flounce.
A- we are all so mean.
B- they are all so smart
C- they will never return.
Now the concept is to assign points for the flounce. There should be points for technical merit and artistic impression for a total of 9 points. Half points may be awarded and points will be deducted if they come back at any time.
As flounces go this one was very mild - little artistry. I judge it a 5.
Let the judging begin.
Please define "we" and "they" as they are intended in your poll so that I may cast my vote.

Thank you.

Now wait, just a darn minute. If "C" is crackhead, then "D" should definitely be delusional and the old "C" should be E.

Are you trying to tell me that everyone that has posted a comment on here has ALWAYS come to a full stop at a stop sign? Never done more than 5mph over the speed limit? NEVER sneak out to see friends of any age or sex? NEVER tried any kind of drugs(at any age)? NEVER drank before you were of age to do so? Come on people you are sitting here saying shit about a 14yo girl that is dead. Who cares what time it was...A 17yo lost his life at 9:30pm should he have been home too? Was he on drugs? The fact of th matter is you have NO CLUE! You have no idea WHO these people were or what they were about all you are doing is speculating to cause drama and sit here and post comments to argue on facts that you know NOTHING about! So unless you are family to this little girl or are privy to the autopsy report to know if she had sex of any kind or was on drugs of any kind, the ONLY thing you should be talking about are the facts that you are given. If that at all because the ONLY thing you know is the absolute facts are how old she was, how old he was, and where is happened. Anything else can be pure speculation on the part of you, the reporter, or even the police. Until all the reports come back and I'm sure you won't be privy to them and by the time they do come out I'm sure you morons will already be on another topic exploiting the facts that you don't know and you won't care about this particular little girl you is forever gone. So why do you bother in the first place? My guess would be (and now its just a guess) that you are not working or watching you kids as you should be, instead you are online making asses of yourselves.
My heart goes out to ALL and ANY family that has lost a child or a friend because no matter who they are, how old they are, or what anyone comments about them they will always be loved and can never be replaced!!!
I feel sorry for her grandparents and others who loved her. But here are the facts:

She was out in the early hours of the day - she was just out of 8th grade and with a boy she barely knew who graduated (or should have) from high school. None of these things should have happened. Her parents weren't raising her, they left that to their parents. Don't give us the BS that they are too poor. If the grandparents are willing to raise her, I'm sure they were willing to help out financially. For all the kids here who are barely literate - if you don't believe she made any mistakes, then you are very likely to end up in a mess (and one of you already has - the little idiot who bragged about being 5 months pregnant - this will probably end up another poor child being raised by its grandparents because the parents were stupid.) So mourn your friend, feel sad about the mistakes she made, and try to do better for yourself. Swearing at everyone just makes you look even more immature and pathetic.
Huh

The whole scenario is why she ended up as road pizza.
That statement was cruel and totally unnecessary. I hope you don't have to think about that one day when you are in a car accident or one of your family members.
