http://wjz.com/local/local_story_309191244.html My son goes to school with the deceased girl. My daughter knows her brother. my 9 year old daughter is best friends with their little sister. And I know the parents. I'm so sick about this. Alyson babysat for my youngest a couple of times and she was a dcent girl, saving her money to buy a car of her own. It hurts my heart that this girl never had a chance at life. I remember 17 and I remember doing stupid things, but I survived and so did most of my friends. That's what teens are supposed to do. They are supposed to do stupid crap and maybe get hurt, but land on their feet. They are supposed to get second chances. my kids are grieving. The brother had brain surgery today to relieve the pressure. They don't know if he will make it. I can't imagine losing a child. Losing two?? Why? 17 is too young to die. Thanks for letting me get this out.

It is really hurting to know about this. The parents must be in so much pain. why this happens to kids. There are so many bad people in this world who kill other people for money or for victory, why not them. Why take away small kids who have not seen the life fully? My heart is very heavy after reading this. I just wish some miracle happen and save those kids and help the parents to live. A lot of feeling coming out from my heart. I pray from my heart that God bless them.

Thanks. It's great to know that people feel so, for those they don't know. That's what being human should be about.

I understand your pain and the family's pain and I empathize with all of you. I remember losing a seventeen year old student a little more than a year back. He was a lively, friendly, loving person and almost half the town mourned his loss. What made the situation more painful was that he was planning to celebrate this 18th birthday in a grand manner. The teenager drowned in the tsunami hit sea of Chennai. He was standing with his back to the sea, in waist deep water, and did not know swimming. A very powerful wave came up and carried him away. Of course, after a year the pain of the loss has worn off, but it is different for his family and close friends. They have gotten back to their normal life, but the loss is still a loss...

Oh man, that must have been rough. My parents went to Sri Lanka after the Tsunami to help with the clean up and rebuilding. They said how devestating the human loss was to those left behind. I couldn't even imagine.

I cannot fathom what it means to lose a child. I do think that no parent should have to bury their children. This is truly a sad happening and I can only say a prayer for the family. It is said that only the good die young, but that still doesn't make it fair or understandable! God Bless

They are a strong, close knit family unit. I think they will be OK with time. I just can't imagine lsing a child. I have 5 kids and I won't say that the fear has never struck me, but I still can't fathom.... Thanks for responding and for your prayers for the family.

That is so sad. A guy I went to school with just lost his wife. They have a little boy together. She got into a car accident last week and after surgery she didn't make it. She was only 21. I'm sad for their family. I couldn't imagine losing my husband or being that young and losing my mother. I couldn't imagine losing one of my children either. I pray that her brother will make it.

Very sad. I guess every parents greatest fear is losing their child and actually that doesn't lessen as they get older. My daughter is 27 now and I still feel the same way - and now of course I have a grandaugher to fret about as well. My daughters boyfriend was killed in a car crash when he was 17. You're right - it's too young to die. Such a tragic and terrible loss. I truly hope the young boy recovers from his brain injury. Those poor parents must be devastated.
