Terrible tragedy. Truly hope this family finds some measure of peace. For those that think 100k is a lot to ask...That is totally heartless, small minded ignorance and an insult to humanity. We are talking about a child's life here. It is offensive to me that anyone would pass judgment in this situation based on that metric. May the lord have mercy on you! God forbid anyone has to face the situation of burying a child, then being left to pick up the pieces while you relocate your family to another country & work through the grieving process simultaneously. THINK!
Why are so many people concerned with the amount their asking? No need to comment your concerns, or even question why their asking that much... Just simply exit off and DON'T donate! The family is going through enough, and no amount of money will replace a child's life. Also, keep in mind they want him buried in Ecuador which is costly to ship his body properly, a headstone, a casket etc.
I know the amount bothers some. It does not mean they will be able to raise that full amount, it just means that is the goal of course. Whatever they do get, this gentle family will be grateful for. If you knew them or this precious little one like his teachers did, the amount would in not get in your way. Jhonathan is another lost angel. The world is going to miss whatever his contribution would have been.
You do not need to apologize for anything! Please disregard the insensitive people who are questioning the amount of your goal or your English writing skills. You are doing something that will support Johnathon's family, and many of us who can, are happy to help. The people who are being unkind must have no idea that grief and trauma have far reaching emotional and financial effects. God bless you. Your community supports you!
Just wanna say, the family is asking for 10k... the bitch who did this is on $100,000 bail. WTF reread the story people. 10k for the family for the funeral expanses which is already almost 7k and the rest to help the family move on and help distract the siblings. NO ONE should have to bury their child after something like THIS.
This was a horrible accident. Unfortunately it is one that could be even more common in our town due to small children from as young as 3 playing in and along the streets unsupervised. I know as a mother I couldn't live with myself if I even hurt a child. Just in the past two weeks I have a had a young girl 3-4 standing on the curb ready to jet in front of my car. Myself and another driver were in a stanstill for 5 mins waiting for someone to come grab her and another boy of 4/5 riding a bike again unsupervised through the streets who road right in front of my car. Now in this case the driver should have stopped that is where he/she is at fault. But as a mother of a five year old why was the boy in the street alone unsupervised so that no one saw the accident. I feel awful for the little boy. It's an awful horrible thing for a young life to be taken and to think he was all alone hurt my heart aches for him. There is only one thing worse then a child's sense less death and that is when people try to profit from it. The boy lived here 100,000 down in Ecuador is like 1 million up here.
