I pray that she finds her way back. No one is exempt from being lost a time or two in their own life. There's no need to kick someone when theyre already down.

You people that bash her are arrogant idiots. I am 54 and remember the things I did back in the day, many the same as kids do today. It doesnt make them right, just the same things I also remember my Dad later on in life telling me about drag racing and beer drinking in the streets. Times are different now, but young people are still going to be young people. We all just hope they survive.

No family is exempt from something like this happening to them. No matter how well you think you've raised your kids, it only takes 1 bad choice and they are sucked in. Making a good rehab program mandatory from the first offense might be a place to start. For minors, parents need to have mandatory education on the subject also. So many parents just don't know what to do, and some parents don't bother trying. Parents need to take responsibility for helping their child along with the authorities.

so many excuses for her - is this the same discussion you have after watching the news and see what happens in Chicago on a daily basis or does she have the "look" that conjures up every excuse in the book.
