Everytime I try to picture that being attached to an aircraft I keep getting the image a humming bird trying to carry a hunting rifle. :lol:

A beautiful life lost: :cry:

Rape, bullying led to N.S. teen's death, says mom

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-scot ... -rape.html

The police are re-opening the case. I know a few people on here have experienced the same with their kids. I just don't get it. The service is being held tomorrow.

So sad :(

The quotes about social media are very true.

"We spend an awful lot of time teaching kids how to drive, we spent an awful lot of energy ensuring that they can drive responsibly, and we need to do the same with social media."

While teens may be advanced when it comes to using technology, Kutcher said adults need to teach them how to use social media responsibly"

It's so easy to insult someone on FB or Twitter - no-one stops to think before they type :( :(

The school which she left (Cole Harbour High) is now receiving threats; how ridiculous!

I think a lot of it has to do with poor upbringing.

Just heard about an Explosion at the finish of the Boston Marathon, Killing at least 3 People and injurying Hundreds. Looks like the work of Terrorists, In the UK they will be looking at Security for the London Marathon next week end, but at the moment there are no plans to cancel the event. :o

It sounds like she was trying to keep her children away from social services. Tragic :(

I guess I'm the only one to whom this makes no sense? Did she kill the 3 kids and then fall off the parking garage?? Or did they all fall off together...?? :?

according to the article the kids were found dead in their home.

Sounds to me like she killed the kids then jumped off the parking garage.

With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
