Amanda Tood- The Last Testament

How many teenagers and children have to commit suicide until people make a stand and go against bullying in any shape, fashion, or form?  We have teens that cannot make it through the rain because they do not get a chance to live another day for, they don’t believe they’ll ever pull through which they can if they put their mind to it.   Anyone can stand up once again and they are strong enough to mend themselves to be the person they dreamed about.

I cannot tell the pain reading those cards of what this young adult had to go through when dealing with cyber-bullies and bullies in school.   True it was a decision that she made which lead to the events that she lived through but, could there have been something done in order to prevent her from committing suicide when she still had her life ahead of her?  Who knew what this young adult could have done when it came to anything for, all we know she could have found the cure of certain cancers or, she could have brought economic peace to the world.

Amanda Todd was a young victim of a cyberstalker and child predator that duped her into flashing him.   There are so many young people who find themselves in this situation without giving a second thought because these adults gain the children’s trust in doing whatever they want of them.

In the world filled hatred, no natural affection, and lack of kindness it would be nice to find those who can grant a person loving-kindness, empathy, and kindness.   Those who have a hard heart should not deal with those who can give the compassion that this lonely, persecuted young adult had faced because of one simple mistake.   There are millions like her but, who is out there to help them?

Will you help a child or teenager that is being bullied by those who are hard of heart?   Are going to help them through the rain?

The Indiana boy whom was abducted in 94 found in Minnesota

INDIANAPOLIS — Richard Wayne Landers Jr. was just 5 years old when he and his paternal grandparents, who were upset over custody arrangements, disappeared from a small town in northern Indiana.

Nineteen years later, news that he has been found living under an assumed name in Minnesota left his mother overjoyed and “jumping up and down,” her husband said Thursday shortly after police announced the break in the case.

Indiana State Police said the now 24-year-old Landers was found in Long Prairie, Minn., thanks in part to his Social Security number. His grandparents were living under aliases in a nearby town and confirmed his identity, investigators said.

Police declined to say whether the grandparents will face charges, citing the ongoing investigation.

Landers’ mother, Lisa Harter, was “jumping up and down for joy” when investigators told her a few days ago that her son had been found, her husband Richard Harter told The Associated Press in a telephone interview.

He said his wife is “the happiest woman on earth.”

Harter said he and his wife were working with an attorney and hoped to reunite with his stepson soon. Police said Landers is married and expecting his first child.

Harter declined further comment and referred questions about the case to his attorney, who didn’t immediately return phone messages Thursday. Investigators declined to release the names under which Landers and his grandparents had been living.

Police said the boy’s paternal grandparents, Richard E. and Ruth A. Landers, abducted him in July 1994 because they were “upset over pending court proceedings” regarding his placement.

Police spokesman Sgt. Ron Galaviz said it appears the boy’s father was never in the picture. Lisa and Richard Harter had married a year earlier.

Authorities believe the grandparents took the boy from their home in Wolcottville, about 50 miles southwest of South Bend, and fled. They were charged at the time with misdemeanor interference with custody, which was bumped up to a felony in 1999. But the charge was dismissed in 2008 after the case went cold.

Investigators reopened the case in September when Richard Harter turned over the boy’s Social Security card to an Indiana State Police detective.

That turned up a man with the same Social Security number and date of birth living in Long Prairie, about 100 miles northwest of Minneapolis. A driver’s license photo for the man appeared to resemble Landers, police said.

Indiana State Police then contacted Minnesota law enforcement agencies, which began investigating along with the FBI and the Social Security Administration.

The grandparents were found living in nearby Browerville, Minn.

Well my question is what charges are the grandparents are going to face because since when kidnapping legal in the gray area?
