    Woah.
    I'm really sorry that ever happened to him. But now he has millions of dollars. Cha-ching.

    Wow.. that is just sad... :(
    If I could have $4.2 million and be paralyzed.. I wouldn't take it though. Just a thought that ran through my mind. I'm sooo glad he made it through <33 I wish bullying would be taken more seriously. I hate how it has to FINALLY be looked at when it results near death or a dramatic change of their life forever.
    It's sad to see THAT'S what it takes to get someone to do something about bullying.

    I was bullied all throughout middle and high school and it has scarred me for life and as long as I live. I'm against it tremendously.

    Ya, and more than likely most of that will be going to his various treatments and such. With that type of money - couldn't they try to look into solutions to see if he can ever walk again?

    Its sad that something like this happened to him, but i never would have accepted that kind of offer >.> Sadly, all that will just pay his bills, yes. The poor man is paralyzed for life.

    The day I become paralised is the day I'm going to switzerland or whatever that european country is that you can do assisted suicide in.

    This reminded me of this stupid thing in the UK, I think it was London a while ago. But Primary school children were getting compensation for the most stupid of things, it were like some kid got £400,000 ($600,000) because she tripped over in the playground and drew blood on her knee or something. Something dead ridiculous like and got a massive load of money for it.

    I didn't fully read the title of this post thingy basically.

    Half read something and then just assume the rest.
