There are people on Facebook who put their whole lives out there. It seems like they can’t wait to open their page and report mundane facts about their lives. Some use Facebook as an announcement to the world how badly they slept last night.

I think Derek Medina was one of those people. He chronicles his life, hopes and pain, so everybody can see his suffering. I think somebody should have known how volatile his situation was.
