I wonder how many of these freshman actually KNEW him.. as in FRIENDS and hung out together and stuff. cause idk.. it seems like everybodys overreacting.. but then again, I don't know how their relationship was with him.. but it seem sEVERY girl that's a freshman is like.. really upset about this.. and you couldn't have all known him. it's funny how girls freak out about someone's death.. even if they didn't really know them.. and guys don't as much. It's not FUNNY... it's just weird. nothing to laugh about. and I'm NOT saying this is no big deal.. someone died.. it's a huge deal, don't get me wrong. Just saying my feelings about this whole thing.. cause it's a journal... and that's what you do in journals.. so don't attack me for my thoughts.

I wasn't either...it's just that most of those girls go to that god forsaken youth group so they know each other. I'm thinking he was really popular too--really smart, athletic and funny, so he has reason to be mass mourned. I didn't know about him, though, until Friday. Also, a lot of freaking people i've heard of died this week, or had chemo, or some other depressing event, which is horrible; so if i was like, freaking out, it was because of that.

Im hoping that wasn't too insensitive, I didn't mean to be

What the fuck is your problem, Chris? You dont even know! You dont even fucking know!

"and you couldn't have all known him."

Do you have any idea how many people were at his funeral? They ran out of room. Dont talk about things you know nothing about.

It's impossible to "overreact" when someone so amazing as Jeriel dies. Of a stroke. At the age of 16. Of all the people in this world, it was he that deserved it the very least. I've never met anyone so selfless, so kind, so caring. So dont EVEN say we're overreacting.

And yes, I was friends with him. We did hang out. I have reason to feel this way because a close friend of mine died, Chris.

And nothing can ever change that.

then I shall never speak again.. because I will never know if everything I say is 100% true.

and I'm not saying you weren't friends with him. I believe you.. and I'm not trying to take your friendship away from you. I'm sorry if it seems that way

I knew him. Of course, I'm not a freshman, I'm a junior-in his same class. And no one is over reacting. You can't say things like that if you don't know the person who has passed away. Jeriel was really, very wonderful. All the things said about him at his funeral, like how he never thought about himself, and how he always picked out the person who was alone to say, 'hi' to and everything were all very true. It might sound like we are bullshitting you because he is dead, but he really was very friendly and considerate of other's feelings.

Okay, most of what I have to say to you Chris is exactly what Tori said. How dare you? How DARE you say that about someone? What the FUCK where you thinking? I cannot believe you could say such a rude and selfish thing. Overreating? Please explain to me how exactly people can overreact to a 16 year old who DIED. Died, of a stroke. something that people our age rarely die of. Just because YOU didn't know him, doesn't mean a lot of other people didn't. Freshmen know him because we were new this year at youth group, and he had the balls to walk up to all of us and introduce ourselves and make us feel welcome. He was the best person I ever met in my life. Maybe we didn't chill every weekend but I hung out with him all the time at youth group and during the prep meetings and fundraisers for the mission trip. He lived his life for God, and everyone who knew him saw that. Maybe if you and the people like you who are thinking the same thing knew him, you would actually understand what its like to loose someone like that.

maybe he shouldn't have disrespected Jeriel. and if he didnt mean to, then he should think now before he says things like that about someone who just died.

maybe. but maybe all you guys took that the wrong way.. have you ever thought about that?

You're saying I should think before I say things like that.. and I'm gonna say you should look at things in more than one point of view before you do something mean. and it's only mean from MY point of view cause this entry wasn't intended to be taken the way a lot of you took it.


I'm not saying I'm right about this whole thing.. but I'm not saying you are either. and I'm not talking about you specifically kim...

I felt that way, too. I know lots of people knew him and cared about him, but some of the people who were sad didn't know him and still they wouldn't stop crying. Some used it as an excuse to go home.

I went home when Anna said she was moving... but I think it was because she said it could be tomorrow.

But not when Jeriel died.
