    I was impressed by her statements on the news. The Force is strong with this one.

    Now, it is up to the courts to have these two "young men" put into the adult system and try them as adults. Then send them both to prison for a long time. Hopefully by the time they get out, they will be old enough to know better.

    I am so appalled by the callous actions of the two boys accused of assaulting her. I hope they can somehow find a path to redemption and forgiveness.

    Wow, that was fast. Now she can grow her beautiful hair back like it was. She may be tougher than this bullet in her head and hoping in the future it can be remove soon. Enjoy being with your pets and your horse.

    it appears she may have a little paralysis on the side of her face. Who knows what other long term effects she will have to deal with from this brutal, cruel, and senseless act? I pray she continues to get the help and support she will require long after her unwanted celebrity fades and that she is tougher than the bullet
