Laura M., age 13, North Carolina

Got up and washed face, etc. Ate breakfast. Then I called Shannon – not home. Called Brittany and she told me about trying to kill herself. She had to go to the hospital and everything. I love her so much. I hope she knows that. I went around the block on my new bike. It was so cold! Shannon called me. Sean called me. David Perry and Cap ate dinner with us. I got in the shower.
