January 9th – It’s been 3 months without by PS!!! (But it says the 10th)

Tomorrow is the 10th. Light a candle for our Princess Snowflake!!! 

12:47 pm – As I sit at home today still not feeling the greatest, I wonder if it is one of the flus going around or just stress release from the past 3 months (minus a day) of running around dealing with ‘stuff’ related to Amanda. I know that if it weren’t for her story or our tragedy, some of what is happening in the world wouldn’t be happening.  I just got this email from a work colleague who is watching some kids on a playground “Carol, you’d love to see this…  I’m at xxxxxx right now, watching 2 students in their pink snowflake shirts, leading 15 other students in an anti-bullying group, during their lunch. It’s awesome! :)”  Now I find that so wonderful to hear.  We have to imagine, those pink shirts wouldn’t be there if it weren’t for Amanda.  The pink bracelets wouldn’t be circulating around the world if it weren’t for Amanda.  It is alot of work trying to make her not be forgotten.  I can’t do it alone.  BUT ALSO, I don’t think it would be happening if I weren’t here pushing it.  I sit here today and look at pictures of her and what we have doing … it mays me cry and smile at the same time.

P.S.  Have you heard the bullying commercial on the radio.  I have only heard it on 94.5 The Beat.  It really hits the mark!!  Also, today a news article was published by Winnipeg Free Press – Facebook charges a lesson for others (Jan 9).

4:20 pm – I just read an article about how the conspiracy theorists – Sandy Hook truthers –  think that one of the children that died in the Sandy Hood incident is alive and well.  Like OMG!!  Leave us families alone for frick sake …

MORE LATER ….(it appears that when I write, it calms me down)

    Just stumbled upon these words from a friend posting on facebook who quoted the book of James: If anyone does not stumble in word,he is the perfect man, also able to bridle the whole body. James 3:2 We need to be careful what we say to others, our words could be the last words they ever hear. (A reason for evrything)

  5. Amanda will never be forgotten! Never! Her video made this so very real, for every single one of us who watched it and to all who heard about this tragedy! Its so powerful!! i hope it continues to be used to make a lasting impact on kids. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and of you! You are in my prayers always! If writing helps you write! Do the things you enjoy doing most. Amanda would not want you to be sad .. She wants you to be string and to continue her mission. I promise the pain will slowly subside over time. For people out there who have these feelings ..please make a promise to just wait another day! That horrible overwhelming feeling will go away and tomorrow is another day. “This too shall pass”! Sending you healing energy and love! We are here for you!

    Carol – you don’t have to do it alone. You are making a difference in this world. We are all here to help you in hopes that we too are making a difference.

    P.S. I think “P.S.” just took on a new meaning. Is it just me or did anyone else notice that?
