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.
This journey is the start of what might end up to be the most challenging year since Amanda’s death in October 2012. 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
