    OK

    The first part was helpful. Although there was an inaccurate Biblical reference that was hard to ignore. The author is a preacher and he refers to Job, saying his children and wife die. Job's wife did not die.

    Logan to bw

    Step one u say we need to talk.
    He walks u say sit down its just a talk.
    He smiles politely back at u.
    U stare politely right on through.
    Some sort of window to ur right.
    He goes left u stay right.
    Between the lines of fear and blame.
    U begin to wonder why u came.
    Where did i go wrong?
    I lost a friend.
    Somewhere along in the bitterness.
    And i would have stayed up with u all night.
    Had i known how to save a life.








    Im sorry bw. Part of this i my fault. But everyone needs u. Everyone on here, we're a big family. We need to watch each other's back. And we need to be there for each other. And we need to protect each other even if were mad at one another or we hate someone.

    Bw, you cant leave. There are way too many people on here that love you. And they all need you. I need you. If anyone has ever told you that you were a bad person or a bully or what the he<3>ll ever they come up with, you should know that they're wrong. I know I'm not enough to make you stay. That breaks my heart but it's the truth, but the person who can make you stay is not on. You cant just get up and leave everyone giving them little warning. You just cant leave.

    Jessica to bw

    Bw u and i have been through so much together we have laughted together and cried together... we stayed by eachother while our friends left. U always stood up for me like a real sister would... i have three real sisters but if i were actualy related to u i would say i was the luckiest girl on earth to be related to someone so smart,talented,pretty,amazing,athletic,caring,and i could just go on and on. Everyone loves u bw even the people that said they wanted u to kill urself were obviously jelous of how amazing u r. I know that sounds like something a parent would say to a bullied kid but i believe that its true when it comes to u. That time when i didnt see u on no<\>ok because we were both off was pretty bad in real life... after we both left my mom said i looked sadder for some reason and after i got back on and saw u my mom said i compleatly changed back to what i was like before... thank u so much for what u did for me on no<\>ok i know my life will be so different for me with u not here.... i hope u come on sometime to see us. Please dont forget me because i will never ever ever forget u. I love u sis i will miss u a ton.... &hearts &hearts &hearts

    Im sorry. About all of this. You are a great friend. I hope we can talk but idk. I loved chatting with you. I will always remeber you. And someday you might do great things idk. But only one person knows. Who knows what youll do later on i will miss you soo much. Just protect yourself from all harm. Okay. Here is a qoute. Idk if youre a christian or not but... "May God give you........ for every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessig in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and an answer for each prayer" remeber this. I hope you will have a great rest of your lie and that you will do great. I love you and i i will miss you a ton!! So bye :'''''''''(
