    So saturday... one of my really good friends died. He was a sophomore at Grinnell College in Iowa. He lost control of his car because of the snow and stuff and ran into a tractor. He died from the injuries. He was 19 freaking yearse old and one of my best friends ever. This is shocking and hard for me. I dont know. I just wanted to let you guys know something that's been going on in my life. I started counciling about 2 and 1/2 weeks ago. I go once a week every monday. I hope everyone else is having a good time though.

    Oh my God Liv...I'm sorry to hear that. Sadly, theres no easy way to deal with this. Best anyone can do is pray and let time heal itself. It doesnt sound like much, but its the best advice I could give anyone...again I'm sincerely sorry.
    It probably means nothing from someone you never met in your life, but if you need someone to talk to...XDarkLionheartX@aol.com

    Rest in Peace.

    Thanks. Thank you everyone. I'm having a really hard time with this...

    Today was the visitation. The worst thing ever is seeing one of your friends lying in a casket. His family remembered me from the few times they met me and that meant a lot to me.

    This hurts so bad :(

    I know, It's sucks terribly. But things will get better, Right now yoo probably just want the ground to open up and swallow you whole, but it will get better, you just have to find a place for him in your heart and he will live in memory.

    I am so sorry to hear about your friend, I know how hard it is to get over. Anything I say will just sound tacky so I'll just say I'm sorry.

    Worst death

    Visually, I saw a guy get decapitated, he was on a motorbike and lost control and went head 1st into the back of a truck carrying glass, he turned in time to miss the truck but not in time to miss the glass that was sticking out about 3 feet from the back of it. His head came off and the bike and the rest of him went off into a ditch. I didn't know him but that sight still haunts me.

    Personal, when my grandfather died, I never god to say goodbye.

    I am from Zimbabwe and I have lost a lot of friends with the war veterans killing white farmers and anyone else who gets in there way. I know 17 people who were killed and I was friends with a lot of them, one of them was tortured for six days and then left to die of his wounds, the torturing happened in front of his wife and 5 year old daughter. Anyway, I will stop now before I get into how much I hate Shona people....
