Thanks to you for being nosey and posting personal information I might not graduate high school now, and I’m not allowed to attend my senior prom. Thanks a lot. I don’t deserve to be hiumiliated like this for a mistake that continues to hurt me and my family. Everybody makes mistakes, and now mine is public to everyone including my school and threatening my future. I have already accepted the consequences from the state, and now because of your posting I have to face even worse consequences from my school. I’m glad that you enjoy ruining peoples lives and placing them into a deep state of depression just so you can have something to write in your stupid newspaper.
