regardless of how many followers she had, it's a sad statement of how many people as alone as she obviously felt who have only social networking sites to turn to.
and if it went to social services already, who else was she supposed to turn to? she knew if she said something again that she'd be left with her family and probably abused more for it. unfortunately, running away was probably her only real option, and for women, that typically leads to a life of prostitution.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Several news outlets reported the number of Twitter followers Ashley had. If you have more information supporting your opinion, I would be delighted to hear it.
I hate to sound mean, but don't people run away anymore?
If you actually paid attention to the news and what they were saying she only had 40 followers prior to her committing suicide she posted it on twitter because all of her friends would not get on there only on facebook and she knew if she posted on facebook they would have stopped her. That day she did not go to school so it was while everyone was at school that she was posting up the tweets of her life her friends and family had been there for her but it was too much for her and she felt like she had no way out... After CPS said they did not have enough evidence to prosecute her dad she got worse which is why she twitted what she did to let people know what she had gone through she is no longer here, what she wanted to do was get justice for what happened to her and after the tragic lose her case is being reopened.
It is a shame that she felt her only way out was death. Being born unto an abuser I can feel her pain.....it never really goes away. However, things do get better. I wished someone could have relayed that to her. Rest in peace. God Bless
these stories show up in the news every so often and we're all supposed to feel really upset that someone didn't take the tweets or facebook posts of a depressive seriously. this chick also made these posts but apparently never spoke to someone in person, where the comments would be taken a lot more seriously. it's hard to truly know what is serious and what isn't on pseudo-anonymous social networking sites. there are also quite a lot of people who do nothing more than whine about everything on there, posting about how they hate this and that, or how life always sucks, or how bored they are. the vast majority of time, the whiner is just trying to get attention. the alternative is to call the police every time someone posts something negative, and you'd become a very busy caller.
in our youth, we're told the parable of the boy who cried wolf, who finally gets ignored when the wolf finally does show up. articles like this work to play with our emotions and twist the meaning of the story around, as if we're to be upset at the townspeople for not showing up for that third time the boy cried wolf.
You call the law and hope that someone would help her!
