March 18th – So many stories out there ….

It was a tiring day.  Not sure that I am sleeping that good at night.  I did have a wonderful massage though.  So relaxing.  And wishing I could do it every week but my massage therapist is super booked up.

Doris came by to pick up Amanda’s clothes today.  Bittersweet.  Someone told me not to think abou them leaving permanently as they will be back in another form.  A comfy form to curl up in.  Uh oh …. did we wash all her clothes???  There were some really nice, really bright articles of clothing. Lots of logos from her cheer, swimming and school days.  Was hard to see it go.  Still hard to even imagine.

Heard some stories of kids today.  Amanda certainly wasn’t alone in her fears of the world and of people.  I wonder again, how can we make more of a difference and help parents and kids.  Both need support.  I just want to wrap my arms around them all.  I have to say that I talked to (either over the phone or social media), 6 different families today.  There is more stuff coming down the pipeline.  I truly need to go into all my emails and write  down notes about everything.

Will add more to this blog write tomorrow.  Tired…

The impact of a petition for change….

Making good decisions ….

    To la Punisher-On October 19th 2012,at Holland Park,I was there early to help set up the tables for Amanda’s Memorial.Few people were there at that time in the afternoon.A fellow dressed in black satin,boots and pony tail,was off to one side.I walked over to strike up a conversation.He belonged to a motorcycle club.Not one of the nicer ones.He told me he just rode 12 hours to get there from Alberta.We got into the conversation of who was responsible for pushing Amanda so far.He said they knew about Maxson.He did not want to elaborate,and I did not push,but he did let me know that in no uncertain terms that they wanted to meet up with him.If I was Kody,I would sleep with one eye open with these guys cruising around.The man said little,but the way he spoke thru his teeth gave me a chilling impression what was in store if they ever meet up with him.

      That freak hurt a lot of people when he did what he did and forced that little girl to do what she did, There is no forgiveness, We don’t forgive, There is no forgetting, We don’t forget. And things are going to be made right.

      Okay Paul… There was Kody Maxon the real creep, and Viper2323, Viper was involved with the cappers, But creepy Maxon was the one who did the damage, The cops done nothing to him and for his sake denied that he was the one, wanting to catch him in the act, Maxon got released on bail from another sex charge and skipped to Cuba… Nothing can be done about that, But one day he’ll come back, Every so often we check up on the loser and keep on top of things.

    I think it’s a perfect idea about the quilt. Hoping we get to see a pic of it when its finished!!! (just my opinion)- but im thinking it might be somewhat easier for you to see and have her clothes in a different (beautiful) form, where you could keep them out in the open a little more and be around them more often. It will definitely be special . La Punisher and merle48, a few of your words really stood out to me in your comments.

    “Amanda certainly wasn’t alone in her fears of the world and of people”. How sadly ironic for a young girl always described as spunky and outgoing by everyone who knew her. I will know no peace until the original perpetrators are caught and brought to book.

    I am sad too for every other child that is going through this. I am sure you can help just by reaching out to the parents. Carol!

      We never give up ~ We are always scouting ~ Always searching ~ We will find ~ We are Anonymous, We never Forgive, We never Forget, Expect Us.

      The one we know who started it, is down in Cuba, Canada has no extradition treaty with Cuba, So we have to sit and wait it out, He will get brave and make a move, than the lights go out.

    I am sure the quilt will look superb.A baby-book made from Amanda’s clothes.Snuggling under the quilt on those cold,windy nights.They do call them “comforters” do they not?la Punisher has brought up an excellent point today about how we should examine our conscience,to effect positive change.It all starts with our thoughts.

    “Lots of logos from her cheer, swimming and school days.” This brought tears to my eyes…I’m sorry, it’s so unfair…for Amanda, and all the others…my empathy for you is getting the best of me today. Her spirit definitely gives you strength, so when you get the quilt, be sure to wrap yourself in it every night.

    how can we make more of a difference and help parents and kids. …

    I think that to really make a difference we need to examine our conscience
    and learn to be more loving, compassonate and caring to our human family,
    to listen with the inner ear, and to feel with our heart, to stop prejudging
    others and to learn to judge ourselves, To love one another as much as we love ourselves.
    We need to go back to “FLOWER POWER” <<<A Time when love was in the air and world wide
    everyone loved each other as brother and sisters, We shared, We cared, with real feelings., I know, Cause I was there.

    One small seed of Love planted in our own hearts will grow into a big beautiful, loving, caring
    sharing world, all it takes is one person to keep trying to make that difference,
