- Concept : An MMT story always starts with 'Today' and ends with 'MMT.' All stories are limited to 300 characters. We would love to hear your story. So, what's got you thinking today?
- If your story isn't published on our homepage, please don't feel offended. We love reading all of your submissions, but we can't possibly publish them all. Note: If your MMT story gives us something to think about, it will be published.
I can relate. Two students died within a week of each other. One drove off the road and hit a tree - this was his third totaled car and alcohol is suspected of being involved. The other commit suicide on Thanksgiving.
You can guess who got a long moment of silence, cans being passed around to raise money for his funeral, and a fundraiser to give him a memorial flag.
All I wish is that we were given an assembly to teach people that suicide is a permanent answer to a temporary problem.
If only people could have gotten to know her more. :( I think they should join her group anyways even if they never met her. I go to a small school and last year a boy was hit by a bus and died. Even though half the school didn't know him we all cried together. To be fair this 'rude inconsiderate popular' boy made a huge mistake by drinking and driving. But unless you REALLY know him, you can't say there is no reason for his 600 members.
Can you link us to her group? Please, this struck me and almost made me cry. I just can't stop imagining me or one of my friends being that girl because im not popular and neither are my friends and that just seems like something that could happen close to me.
People say this is disgusting but did you really know the other guy? Did you grow up with him and know how was at home? Did you really know how he was as a person? He made a mistake, but he wasn't a bad person, remember that...
Well, someone that is rude and inconsiderate to people he doesn't know is probably not a good person at home either. The people that are defending the drunk driver are probably drunk drivers themselves. If you ever make the decision to drive drunk, you are making the decision that its okay to possibly hurt other people. That is wrong. This girl did nothing to deserve to die. This drunken kid was too stupid to take anyone else into consideration and in the end faced the ultimate consequence.
wow....all of you need to think... how do you know they were both exactly as you thought of? she was unpopular? To whom? you? surely she had her own friends? and he was popular? (same) was he inconsiderate to you and others (but what bout even other poeple?) you cant just judge poeple like this... you hve to know their experiences, their upbringing, what happened to them minutes before he got drunk? you have no idea what he could have been going through. just try not to judge without thinking as if you were in their shoes. in fact that thought is applicable everywhere
