alice, it is about something, actually a someone. stories/reports in the news media/media outlets only share what they seem to find important a lot of the time failing, or not able, to share the whole, the truth behind the story people hear and read and then leads to an assumption. it appears you're a good friend, and you're letting people know that mental health issues need to be dealt with properly. jsyk, people that are cruel are either usually the ones with the dirtiest back yards or the ones that pretend they don't have a backyard.

Alice, Thanks for writing. I do not know CJ more than casually, but my kids do, and my heart ached when I read the article and then it ached more when I read the negative responses to that article. Hurting humans need help to keep themselves and other people safe. My thoughts and prayers still go to the family. I hope CJ feels better soon.

pain is a silent killer, unseen, unheard and unknown to many who know not the cure. when pain is exposed, in form or in action, it is easily misunderstood and mis-represented as a threat to others. the policing of children has gone terribly wrong in this community, as well as across the nation. the era of 'right think' is upon us, devoid of compassion, and it will spare no one that dares think otherwise. are the 'drovers' setting the hot brand of criminality into one child's life for 'carrying' a piece of steel upon their person? this is no school nor is it a community any more!!! and one wonders why a few of them sidle sideways against the walls of the hallways, in fear of others who deem them defective or 'not right' in their thoughts? no, this is no community, nor is it a place for the beginnings of change, but a failure in whole, by many toward a dark and dim stagnation of moral void. is the quest for financial accountability superceding the basic morality of children? i dare any to respond to the charges of 'complicity by inaction' if this was the case with CJ! may the consequences of your inactions follow you until your own death! /sarcasm on/(forgive me, i'm having an episode!)/sarcasm off/

None of this would be as big a deal if school saftey weren't a political debate at the current time. The "threat" wasn't against the student body, and there are countless people in the world who carry knives on their person. In all honesty, politics and "saftey" are going to be put above any thought of a students well being. There is more damage being done here than any good.
