This is one brave, insightful, admirable teenage girl. A 16-year-old high school sophomore, MacKenzie Swigart, from Kansas, who created a site at Facebook.com in memory of Cho, including understanding towards his suffering. And she stresses the fact that if he had gotten help when he most needed it, perhaps all of this would not have happened.
"He was a really twisted person. He needed help, that is what led him to commit his crime," Swigart said. "That is what makes it so sad. He could have received the help he needed and possibly went on to live a more fruitful life, the lives of the other victims could have been spared, but we won't know now."
She said it's the hateful and vulgar criticism toward Cho written in other groups that led her to create one forgiving him.
