How we overcome the negatives in life …

I have thoughts to share. There are many reasons for going to the Netherlands. Some that I can share and others that I cannot. For me, closure is not in my vocabulary, but the path to healing over grief certainly is. Seeing this person will be difficult. However, there are many out there who need to do things because they know in their hearts (and their brains) that they need to.

Hopefully seeing this person in the Netherlands will prepare me somewhat for when i see him again when his extradition to Canada will occur for the trial of Mr Coban vs Amanda Todd. Also, everyone in this world is subject to their opinions.

My daughter passed away (dead can often be such a harsh word to someone who has lost a loved one) 4 years and 3 months ago. She will not come back ever. But whatever happened to her and others need be talked about so that we can all have those difficult discussions with our loved ones, our students, our communities and hope that one day, behaviours will be altered. No one really knows me as a person, but just what is seen in a 4 minute video clip. Sit down and have coffee with me and we can all have the talk about what we need to do to make a difference in our world. Thank you to all those who have supported with words and/or donations. All monies will be spent in a way that we can keep the world a safer place. xoxo

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

    “No one really knows me as a person,” but you know yourself and that is what is important. Your mind and heart will tell you what you need to do, and you must trust your own self most of all. Pay no heed to those who strive to gossip and gain warped significance from your difficult journey. You are the only one that can tell yourself to forge ahead through the muck, and so far it has worked.
