    RIP. Peace and blessings to all these young peoples family and friends.

    God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.  Submit yourselves then to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  Come near to God and he will come near to you.  Wash your hands you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn, and wail. Change oyur laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom.  Humble yourselves before the LORD and he will lift you up. 

    James 4:6-10
       As selfish as it may seem, the LORD has the blueprints for ALL of our lives!  Treasure your time here, minister HIS word, and lean not on your own understanding.  For GOD is my LORD and Savior.  I know that HE called his children home not suffer, yet he left one here on earth to suffer for what he has done just as GOD left the centurian who stabbed Jesus’ side while on the cross to roam this earth for eternity.  Everyday that goes by, this boy will have to live with the consequences of his actions and have to face judgement when its his turn to face judgement, which is not of this earth.  Let GOD deal with him as HE already has!  Pray that one day his soul will find peace!  The truth will show its face.  Vengence, hate, and revenge is not necessary for a dog that’s alreeady wounded.  His turn to face GOD WILL COME…and I pray for his soul!
       Father GOD, I lift up a prayer for ALL who have been impaced by the events that took place on March 25th. I know that you have called your children home to rest besides you.  Let no man take destiny into their own hands as YOU have created the path in which we shall walk to follow you.  Greed, jealousy, envy, slander, I denounce all negative things that has become of a situation that was put in place as an example for us to learn from. Begraeful for the all mighty knows ALL!
    God Bless to all and put this hurt to rest. Live for GOD, Love you ohana, and love yourself!  GOD Bless, Keep your press, Shake off stress, and NEVER settle for less!

    Bless Up,

      Enough of the GD preaching in here.  ffs!  Save it for the church.  A short condolences is enough.

      • Top Shottah

        Here is a prime example of a kindergarten education.  Just wanted to send their souls a prayer, yet you showed
         2 two things, not just to me, bu to those who literate in the english language:
        #1- That all you did in school was take naps, even during the spelling tests! 
        #2- You lack faith, the faith, the kind of faith that would send prayers up for the people whose lives were cut short, & mis-spelling a word that even someone with down syndrome could even spell GOD! So please no disrespect someone who is praying for them, and no act like an “Internet Gangsta”.  Respect those that you don’t know, because you don’t know them and they unlike you don’t fear little people that type heavy!  Anyone can swell their chest
        writing heavy comments via the internet…look while Gay Santos was  getting heavy and you either forgot the “O” for GOD or the “E” for G.E.D.which is probably what you ended up settling for.  So now you know, I hope you proud of your spelling or lack there of!!! Eh, by the way I heard Ka Lima O’ Maui is hiring…you don’t need to know how to spell to cut grass!

        P.S. What’s F.F.S.    F.orgot F.or S.pell??? LMFAO!!!!!

         BLESS UP , 

        • JSantons

          LOL.  Wow…  slay me with your spelling skills.  Truly shows your lack of a good argument.  And again, save it for the church, spare us your mama drama.  And FFS look it up.

          h t t p : / / w w w . u r b a n d i c t i o n a r y . c o m / d e f i n e . p h p ? t e  r m = F F S

          Top Shottah, do you not know what an acronym is?  JSantos actually didn’t have one misspelling in her post, where as your post has three typos.  Well done.  :)

    The headline for this story is a bit misleading.  There were three OTHER victims- in the other car.  They weren’t doing anything wrong.  They weren’t drunk out of their minds.  They weren’t high on who knows what kind of illegal drugs.  They hadn’t spent all night at a rave party out in the sticks.  They weren’t flying down the highway at 100 miles per hour in a car driven by a wanted criminal with a license revoked for DUII.

    We should keep THOSE victims in our thoughts and prayers too.
