Please think before you speak.

Original post made by Another parent on Sep 2, 2009

There are some rumors spreading around town concerning unpleasant and very tragic details of recent events. These details, while compelling, are inappropriate to spread around and can only make the problems worse. If they concerned a member of my family I would be devastated to know that people were repeating them. When someone experiences something horrible and unforgettable, the thing to do is to get some help from a professional rather than to share the details with others, who may be similarly affected. Once you are the recipient of such information, it is as if you've been infected with a terrible virus. The urge to pass it on may become intense. And so it goes, hurting more and more people. Please get help if you need to. We are all under a lot of stress because we may not know what we'll see when we drive through town. Please stop this at once.
