This girl recently died at my school, You may have heard. Answered

It is Really bad when you feel you have to carry a weapon. This girl and her two younger siblings and father recently died, by her father, and people started a rumor that i was making fun of her and her family after the tragedy, i wasn't, that is just messed up, it is even more messed up how you cannot walk around and feel safe at school, and people want to kick your ass for something you didn't do. I didn't even know the girl or her family and i felt bad. People are mean.

You may have heard about it on the news.



boo gun control... you need to talk to the school if you dont feel safe there; my school recently initiated a no-harassment policy; the kid who was bothering me got suspended. the school does help, but you need to tell them.

If you feel unsafe, you need to talk to staff. Seriously - they cannot solve a problem they do not know exists, and they are not telepaths. If the problem is mainly with kids in your own class, why not ask your teacher for a couple of minutes to stand up in front of the class and simply state that you're sad the family suffered this way, and haven't said anything bad about them, no matter what rumours they may have heard?

Seriously, do what Kiteman said. The staff at a school can really help with problems like that. Always ask staff for help. Also, don't hate your life, try to get over it, when I feel like I hate my life I just think of something to look forward to or something to make myself feel better.

Wow. That's aweful. What a worthless coward the father was!!!! But to your problem: Have you talked to the pricipal ot other school authorities? That's definitely the first step. Kids can be mean (and stupid). Do you know who started the rumour? People really need to know that you didn't say those things. I don't really know the best way to get that message out there. You might try writing a sad story about it in English or something. If people realize you view it as a tragedy, maybe they'll realize the rumours are false.

If more laws are created, more people wants to break them... It is a sad thing.. :-(

You're getting hassle over this because of something you said? That's not going to go away too easily unfortunately.

No missed it, but I did see this piece of gun-nuttery today.


I didn't say it. I supposedly said "I'm Glad those people died, they deserved it." or something of that nature. I Swear, I Did Not Say It. no one believes me.

Ah, that's worse. Try not to deny it, as people can read that as an admission of guilt, something like "yeah whatever..." might be better? L

Well, i could see that because it already happened, and the school doesn't want me to show up tormorrow. I hate my life.

(think of something that I might exclaim that would be inappropriate)!
That's a bad deal - but don't worry too much about it.
Use this strategy perhaps:
At some point in the future it won't matter. Maybe you think you're 25 and this is of no relevance at all, work it back to a point at which you can say "it will have blown-over by the time I'm that old" - that's your window out. It's them who will have to adapt and understand, you are already there and innocent. Don't let this get you down, because you're still who you are and not giving a (care) about what other people think is not too far from other people not giving any thought to what you really think / said.

Don't take any crap from these people - it's verifiable testimony or you've been victimized and shame on them for giving credence to hearsay / rumor.


It's not the crap I'm worried about it's the people. Especially when you can't leave your own house and be safe from large groups of people mad at you.

Casselberry police tell FOX 35, 45-year old Marie Moore, shot her 20-year old son, Mitchel Moore in the head, before shooting herself in the head. Police say, Mitchel, died at the scene, and his mother, Marie was taken to the Florida North Hospital in Altamonte Springs where she later died. That is the worst grammar I've ever seen in a news article.

Yes, and I found that Fox actually released the surveillance footage of the execution... L

Well, it is only low-framerate surveillance footage, but it's still capturing the event.(the clip I came across had the myFox logo on it to be precise) Yes it is awful. L
