    I think this was a very tragic thing that happened. It is going to be hard for her family and for the whole East High School because lots of people knew her and liked her very much. She will be missed dearly.

    MY HEART GOES OUT TO ALL THE PEOPLE AFFECTED BY THE HORRIBLE INCIDENT AT HAND. MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH THEM ALL. GOD IS THE ONLY ONE TO TURN TO WHEN THINGS HAPPEN AND WE DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY BUT IT IS NOT ABOUT UNDERSTANDING WHY JUST ABOUT THAT THINGS HAPPEN FOR A REASON. REMEMBER SOMEONE FOR WHO THEY WERE NOT WHY THEY ARE GONE.
