Oops darn hubbys phone is typing it for me but changing my words. Journalists should know the truth before they put a story such as mine out into public especially when your name is in it. I hope all of you ppl who were ignorant about it shut up now. Thanks again to all of my friends and family including the kind others who stood up for me. :) next time I hope you others can be more nice to the next person being ridiculed. Peace I'm done explaining myself to u ppl who are rude..

Wow. People must just be looking for a reason to hurt others. I did not know there were so many perfect people in the world. It must be stressful to go through life being sure to NEVER make a mistake.

thanks Kathy, Marie Johnson, and all of my friends as well as my fam for backing me up. Its nice to have some ppl in the world who care about my well being instead of knocking me down when it was a mistake. Its not like I planned to have my breaks go out, yeah. I have to thank the officer that was first on the scene, he was so nice and did his job well. He didn't make me feel like crap like some of you ppl who dont even know me or the whole story did. :-) thanks to the writer of the story as well. She fixed the story and wished me well.
