    Wow, such bravery in the face of danger, and willingness to act deserves support.

    My prayers go out to him, and his family. I'll spread this around my family and tell them to do that same.
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    Facebook, for all its faults and flaws, is an excellent way of raising awareness for causes like this. I can totally get on board with you regarding 15-year old girls posting details of their abortion or one-night stands or whatever, but stuff like this is an excellent idea.

    Look guys i love the fact that social media does raise awareness and fights against bulling, health issues and Global hatred... But that is all covered up and hidden away

    And yet you destroy peoples' lives by creating a Facebook page with one goal: Trashing people.

    How ironic.

    I know he was trying to help but this is just bugging me. Why the hell would you //dive// into a creek? Creeks are almost never that deep and it's stupid to assume it'd be safe to do so.

    Who would've thought that you'd represent the "faults and flaws" part?
