Robyn ... I am so sorry to hear of your terrible loss. I've not had such a loss, so I can't say that I understand how you feel.
I withdraw the comment I made in my final praagraph, for I can see that your loss has made you very sensitive to similar casesmade
However, the fact that your young son waa killed by a car, possibly driven by a careless or dangerous driver does not mean that Robin was not telling the truth.
Your post was full of accusation of Robin's misdeeds ... of which you have no evidence whatsoever.

alan8566_of_uk: First of all. Where do you get off admonishing me? I have a right to say what is on my mind. I speak from a very hurt , wounded heart and spirt. Two years ago(this month) a possible drunk driver,cell phone user, drug user or just a careless driver, ran over and killed my young son. Everyone on this blog jut assume Robin is telling the truth. He can say anything now. My God! The person is dead! That's why! I can't wake my young son up and ask him what happened. His story would probably be a lot different from the person who killed him. The same in Robin's case. He could be guilty! Its going to take much more than prayer to relieve him of this.

Robyn ... What right have you to accuse Robin in the way you have?
How do you know he did not stop and render assistance.
I know if this happend to me, and I completely blameless, I would still feel I needed prayer.
You assume that because he asks for prayer, he feels guilt.
Shame on you, and to use your own words, May God have mercy on your accusatory and judgmental soul.

You know Robin, I answered this blog a couple years ago. How do we know you are telling the truth? The man is deceased now. You should have stopped to render aid to this person. You might have been able to save his life. Your children will have to live with what you have done also. You should have stopped for several reasons: integrity, your kids sake and to prove you were not at fault. If you were right, you had nothing to hide. You messed up many lives, that tragic day/night. Your life, your kids lives,the deceased man's lives and all of his relatives/friends and people who knew and loved him. God have mercy on your soul.

Robin: Did you stop to render help to this man? Whether he was drunk or not ,does not matter.This could be classified as vehicular homicide, which is murder. Is that what is bothering you? Did you go to court? Did the police come out to the scene and investigate. What decision was made in this case? Was an autopsy done? It is basically your word against his. The man cannot speak for himself because he is deceased.What was the ruling in this case. A drunk man/woman is still a human being. This man was somebody's husband,brother,possibly a father and so forth. To take a life is a troubling situation to be in. You need to seek counseling. They can show you how to deal with your pain. Pray and ask the Lord to relieve you of this burden, as well.

Robin, I will be praying for you. My heart truly goes out to you. Righteousness and Justice are the foundation of Father God's throne. My God comfort you during this time and may the truth come out, that this was an accident, not a deliberate act of evil. In Jesus name I pray for you.

Sounds like it was meant to happen. Unfortunate, but it is what it is. I will pray for both parties.

I will be praying for you. God will help you get through this.

Carla, I was reading your post and my heart fell until I found out your son was recovered. Praise God for that. That is a miracle.

2) It wasn't until she made peace that there was nothing that she could do, was she able to forgive herself, even though there was nothing to forgive, because it was an accident. My heart goes out to you and your children that were with you, and I will also pray that you have PEACE, that only God can give.

1)Dearest Robin, Guilt is a powerful emotion, and I can not imagine how you feel. But I do know that my sister had a house fire when a furnace blew up under the stairs. Four of her children were upstairs in their beds, and she could not get to them. IT WAS NOT HER FAULT, but the Guilt almost killed her.
---Dottie on 9/8/06|
Robin - Please don't blame yourself. It was the man's fault totally -- he should not have been drunk and you did not make him drunk ok. God does not want you feeling guilty or sad, He wants to heal you. Forgive the man and keep on forgiving him until you find release. Bless you and never give up because there is hope.

He was running from everything in his life before you ever met him, that's not your fault.
Besides, you never know his standing, you may have been God's instrument of salvation and mercy that night.

I am praying for you.
Remember that God is in control....
Psalms 46:10 says "Be still, and know that I am God:" Trust in Him.
Get your mind off this incident; you cannot change what happened. Dwelling on it and feeling bad about it is counter-productive; focus on the Word.
Read Romans 8:6 "For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace."

It may take sometime to get over it and it will not be easy, but remember this one thing, you would have chose to help to save him spiritually, physically if you had the power to do so,and tragically he was fatally hurt. I will be praying for you that God will give you the strength to get through this.GOD BLESS CARLA X

It was defenatley not something that you did deliberately.I went through a terrible time when my son was abducted by a stranger and my sister was the last person to hold his hand but decided at the last minute to let go, eventually I really believe God spoke to me and we both went opposite directions and she finally found him in the arms of a male man leaving the shopping centre. There was no blame it was just an accident and I just had to veiw it that way however hard it was to think otherwise.
---Carla5754 on 9/7/06|
Dear Robin, of COURSE you're having a hard time. You cannot take another person's life, especially accidentaly, without terrible feelings. Otherwise, you'd be a cold-blooded killer.
Give yourself time to heal
