      Please Shut up!!! All you do is sit up and wait to comment on stuff! Do you have a job? People are involved in accidents and it may not be their fault but they get injured. Go get a job instead on sitting up waiting to comment on everything. #dumbass. Try having some compassion. Unless it happens to you one day then you’ll know how it feels.

      NOT a great way to end a year. Please be a little more considerate with your choice of words. A young man we love and care about is In the hospital in plenty of pain right now and people who care about him have been extremely anxious over this. Happy New Year
