January 19, 2013 – right now!!

I have decided to post the writing that I did right after Amanda’s passing.  Read if you want.  If you don’t want to read, you probably shouldn’t be here in this blog.  I will endeavour to write new things but I feel that the old writes are very strong and emotional. If you are a ‘hater’, don’t bother!!

About Carol Todd

Being the mother of Amanda Todd has lead me on this journey shortly after Amanda's death on October 10, 2012. Amanda's prolific You Tube video has been viewed over 33 million times. Through this video, there has been an increased awareness about cyberbullying, social media safety and mental health. www.amandatoddlegacy.org

    I have been reading the recent.. entries. I think it takes a lot of strength to share your very personal feelings at such a hard time. i know you have a wonderful support system around you..I have great admiration for you. If this were to happen to any body else they might just shut out the world and grieve and try and move on privately. but you have done it while being in the public eye.. I have great respect for you.

    Amanda certainly made a way to bring a lot of wonderful people together, just by all these comments, posts, messages, ect.. whether its by connecting on the internet or meeting in person, Somehow she has managed to bring us all together in some form or another. and what a difference she had made in so many people’s lives. ive seen so much kindness and compassion coming from so many people and it just continues to grow!

  4. thank you for sharing your old posts Carol. I was just sitting down with my nephew helping him out with his English, story was about a girl MSNing and talking to a stranger she met online, and her best friends dilema re the whole situation. I am so glad that schools are making the dangers of the internet a topic of interest! Its about time the schools start educating the kids. it should be part of the ciriculum!! Thank you Amanda and carol for briging this extremely serious issue to the forefront! ❤

    Reading all your older blogs is so raw and emotional I can feel your powerful words.Both you and Amanda have changed my life in the past 3 months.I used to take everything for granted I used to go by what my buddies think.But not anymore I want to be who I am help others when I can and don’t take things for granted.I know no longer side with my friends opinions I speak out on the matter if its and opinion I don’t agree with.I am so grateful for everything I have gained in the past three months new virtual friends to chat to a Facebook group with wonderful individuals.And one new special friend who is virtual but I won’t classify her as that cause she is just simply a friend one of proud to have and that is you Carol Todd.Thank you for your strength and your willingness to share stories about Amanda.I know it has not been easy on you but you are doing a fabulous job and we are all supportive of you and your willingness to carry on your daughters message.

    You know what? I logged in here to read what I posted to see if it made sense as I was sleepy but could not drift off. Not expecting to have any replies. But I saw yours and wanted to say thank you. 🙂

    I know where you’re coming from Greg. Just read some of my posts on here….it’s a mystery why some of us are affected so much, however I welcome positive things in my life, and this is one of them, although as I’ve said before…bittersweet.

    Well, I could not sleep and I got up and checked my Facebook and then came here. I read all the new posts here. Just know that your Princess Snowflake is such an inspiration to me and all the people who at times feel like a cipher in the snow. I chose that term because of a film my church youth group was shown. About a boy who was a loner. He was misunderstood by others. The movie was sad but had a point. I felt all my life like a person who despite all my friends and the help they offered, that I was different. A loner. I am sure that is why I identify with Amanda. Though we were born decades apart, I share a few similarities. I spent lunch in the library. I was bullied by bigger kids. I felt alone at times. I even wanted that one special friend. Someone who would not give up on me. Anyway, I am past that now, but the scars remain to this day because of my experiences. Some people told me I am obsessed with her. I am not so much obsessed but I feel like she is sort of a kindred spirit. If that is hard to understand, I am so sorry. I am not trying to be anything but a better person. I also feel that in the interest of full disclosure and honesty, I was searching out news on Google for news on Amanda’s case. What new leads if any the cops had. Somehow I stumbled on her father’s Facebook. I messaged him. That was Friday evening. I told him why I feel like she (Amanda) was such an inspiration. I sent him my little story on that blog of mine. I hope that he (and you) understand if either of you read it that if there is anything on there that is not to your liking or if you just want me to explain anything, I will. Even if you want me to change something or delete something, I will too. I am trying to channel my energies creatively. I wish both of you could be friends on Facebook. There I said enough. Good night.
