Thank you, Heather, for writing “Chat Room Dangers.” Chat rooms are dangerous because you never know to whom you are really talking. I don’t think you should ever meet anyone from a chat room - they could be wacko. I don’t go in chat rooms and talk to people I don’t know because I am afraid they might come to my house or school.
It’s good that Heather now wants to become a nurse and is going to graduate in the top 10 of her class. She’s come a long way from thinking about running away and committing suicide.
