So this is what I came to work to this morning. There is one student dead and one in the hospital with the death of a friend on his hands. It doesn't mention it but these kids stole the car they where driving.
Guy's be careful. I know a lot of you are young, and it is easy to act and not think things through. Just think before you act. This is a horrible thing to see.

...people know not to do this, and they still think it's cool. I just wish there was a way of getting this kind of thing out of teenage culture sad.gif

That's horrible.

Right after I got out of highschool a couple of people I knew got into a car wreck. They decided to drive drunk at high speeds on a foggy night and they ran into a pole, killing all four of them. The driver, who is the one I knew best, was decapitated by the crash.

Sometimes people may think that they know better than to do stuff, but often that teenage feeling of immortatility overruns the better judgement.

I just hate that someone so young is gone. Death is tragic anytime, but for someone so young it is worse. I just wish that they had taken the time to think about their actions before they acted. I know I did some stupid stuff in high school and I know that it a series of unfortunate events that caused their deaths. I just wish that they had considered that their actions could have consequences.

Reasearch has shown that offenders have problems with impulsivity and thinking about the consequences to their actions.

A society that takes itself too seriously risks bottling up its tensions and treating every example of irreverence as a threat to its existence. Humour is one of the great solvents of democracy. It permits the ambiguities and contradictions of public life to be articulated in non-violent forms. It promotes diversity. It enables a multitude of discontents to be expressed in a myriad of spontaneous ways. It is an elixir of constitutional health. J.

Something similar happened to me. After I graduated, a guy from my wrestling team and a friend of his went out after a few beers. They took a sharp turn too fast and went off the road into a ditch. They both died on impact. Coach was devistated and the guy's picture now resides in the wrestling room.

My senior year, a really popular chick was hit by a drunk driver in a semi and died. The student body brooded for days and all of these considerations were put aside for her. Interestingly, though, another student died of leukemia the same year and was barely acknowledged.

Death at any age is tragic, if an older person has died all the years of experiances have gone for ever, the memories that will be gone, knowldge that can no longer be shared, used or recorded....if a younger person dies then all the potential has died with....whats worse....we are a youth orrientaed society that often undervalues older people unlike some eastern societies....sorry rant over...any death is tragic

Sadly, this will always hold true. There'll always be those who think they're above death. It's scary... I've been in a situation like that before, but not by choice. My life was completey in the hands of the kid driving, who decided to show off by taking a very sharp turn at 65 MPH. A girl down the street from me died last year after making a turn too fast in the rain. Her car flipped over a ditch and landed in her own horse pasture... she died just yards from her house.

It's unnerving to think that a loved one could be walking across the street one day then bam, get hit by a bus. Kinda makes you value life that much more, eh?

They ended up calling it Jinx, because while it was a friendly
sounding word, it still warned of its potential for disaster. And it
was easier, at least among their circle of friends, to simply say
"Jinx" when Sophie wasn't to be trusted around anything that could
possibly be influenced by this particular trait of hers.

As the song says, "We're only immortal for a very short time..." It's one of those lines that sound nonsensical, until you think about it, then realise it's profound. Teenagers rarely think of the future (present company excluded, I presume...), and, so, often think nothing can happen to them. Until it does... sad.gif
