A Must Read from another Mom (May 7, 2015)

Dear Carol

So glad you made it to Ireland I wanted to share something with you today. My youngest son XXX was at work this week when a man pulled into their parking lot, stepped out of his car and took his own life. XXX saw him laying on the ground and was horribly disturbed, the first thing that he thought about was why…he had compassion and felt really sad for his family.  He was sent home and had the next day off as well. Today was his first day back to work since this happened…I wanted you to know that he wore Amanda’s shirt…he said it just seems appropriate…made me tear up. You are doing great things lady…you are making a difference, spreading the word about mental illness, suicide and cyber abuse. My child was able to have compassion and take with him your message of hope…thank you so much for sending the shirts so he was able to express himself with something positive today.

    Hello Carol,
    I heard about Amanda about only a year ago and being around her age Now and going through something similar yet completely different made me think… life is too precious to lose and I believe that man who stalked her should be put to death because the thought of doing that to a minor is downright wrong and disgusting. I honestly wish if she was still around we could have been friends. I know how she felt, but hers was on a way higher level than mine.We know she is resting in peace and security.
    With heartfelt regards,

    That short letter carried sadness, awareness and praise all tied into a neat little bow with the mention of Amanda’s inspiration and the good work you do. It was well and completely said in brevity. The opposite of brevity is longevity=You. Continue to continue please.
