      I went to school with this Denise, “James Monroe High.” She was a very attractive bright girl, but some of her decisions weren’t always the best ones. I often wonder about her family and her family values and all I can say is that I hope we can all learn something positive from all this. Rest in peace Denise.
      As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. Don’t worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you. Simply having children does not make mothers.
      If I had my child to raise all over again,
      I’d build self-esteem first, and the house later.
      I’d finger-paint more, and point the finger less.
      I would do less correcting and more connecting.
      I’d take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
      I’d take more hikes and fly more kites.
      I’d stop playing serious, and seriously play.
      I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
      I’d do more hugging and less tugging.
      Why do children want to grow up? Because they experience their lives as constrained by immaturity and perceive adulthood as a condition of greater freedom and opportunity. But what is there today, in America, that very poor and very rich adolescents want to do but cannot do? Not much: they can “do” drugs, “have” sex, “make” babies, and “get” money (from their parents, crime, or the State). For such adolescents, adulthood becomes synonymous with responsibility rather than liberty. Is it any surprise that they remain adolescents?

      Im also a class mate and old friend frm “James Monroe”.My thoughts and prayers go out to her family, and all the other people that knew her. I can’t belive that something so Unnessessary, Tragic, and Violent could happen to Denise. She was a mother,a friend,and many other things to the people that actually knew her. Her life didn’t have to end like that. No ones life should be taken from them by any person. Murder is never the way for any body to die.Denise was 22 a young woman with her whole life ahead of her, and she didn’t deserve to go out like that. We Grew up in the same neighborhood went to the same schools and hung with the same people. Im really sad and hurt about her death. My thoughts and prayers go out to Denise I’ll always remember You and i’ll never forget or stop thinking of my oldschool Friend “Peaches”. You Will Be missed.
