It’s been a long time since I have written in my blog. For those that are new, please feel free to scroll back to October 2012 when I first started writing. I was good at writing at first but then as my healing process began, I didn’t feel the need or the desire to write anymore. What is interesting is that after logging into my blog, I see there are ‘PENDING COMMENTS’ that need approval before they are posted. Many of them are from a person living in the UK that for some reason is overly obsessed with Amanda’s story. It’s quite interesting to see someone so attached to her story in such a negative way. He has tried everything to continue to get my attention and all I can say is ‘DON’T FEED THE TROLLISH BEHAVIOURS’ of others that are on the internet for what they think is good but in reality, it’s all BAD!!I just wanted to get this out before I start writing again.
I have decided that from now until the trial of Aydin Coban, I will begin to put my thoughts out again. Instead of posting on my Facebook, I will just share this link for anyone to read. To start and then to continue later, February 5th was the day the news was released in Canada that Aydin Coban has been extradited and is in Canada. He did arrive on December 7, 2020 and yes, I was aware of this. However, knowing that this is very newsworthy, I wanted time to collect my thoughts so I kept this news to myself for two months. I will share. my personal feelings the moments I found out but not tonight.
Until I write again (which will be soon), thank you for everyone’s support and kind words always!! CT
Carol, I am a 27 year old woman living in Toronto. When I saw Amanda’s video late in 2012, I was only a teenager myself, a victim of many bullies as well. Amanda touched my heart and my life in a way I can never explain. I cried for her, I hurt for her and I still speak about her to raise awareness. She has inspired me to keep speaking about her and to raise awareness for teenage suicide. I would love to start an organization one day here in Toronto dedicated to just that. I just wanted to leave this message for you to know we have not forgotten Amanda and we never will. Rest in Paradise sweet angel.

this story really breaks my heart .. and for people to keep the bullying going breaks it more . People don’t understand how hard words hurt , I feel for Amanda and I wish she was still here even tho I didn’t know her. My heart hurts for you and her and the rest of her family 😦 I just don’t understand how people can be so cruel .. I cry every time I hear about this story .
You have touched so many lives Carol but know you are never alone!
I am always here if you need me for no matter what that may be….to laugh with, to cry with, to sit in quiet , to scream with, or to get a hug. Whatever or whenever! You know how to reach me beautiful.
Take all the time you need Carol. This trial must be really difficult for you. Hugs, Naomi
