    justsayin, wonder if your response would be different if it was you or someone you care about was going through this. O, I bet the real you would shine in a manner that is unbecoming of your own judgement, that would render you guilty by your own standards. The thing is this, before one can judge,1st- all the facts need to come out. 2nd be careful of judging when not one, i mean not one is sinless.

      I understand that someone may be going through this and be innocent….all I was saying was "Ginger" sounded very uneducated and dumb….given all the language she used. It's not always what you say, it's how you say it. If you want to me heard and listened to then you better find a better way of expressing yourself!

    Love people who have the bravery to make hateful comments online and anonymously. Bet you would not have the nerve to say this to people's face. People who hide behind these comments are jokes. I like the newspaper and online forums that force you to login in through your facebook account. Can't hide in those instance. Cowards easily judge.
