asked by Lilly
  1. I think C because Will to Live sounds like not wanting to kill yourself kind of thing.

  2. Please stop posting, GYMNAST. You obviously have not read this, and are just guessing at an answer. That is not helpful to other students.

  3. Lilly, I think you should read the article to find the answer. No one here is going to read it for you and tell you what it says.

  9. Ms. Sue is hardly a cyber bully! Oh, my! Such little snowflakes!!

    The point is that Ms. Sue is doing what she needs to in order to keep this website running as its owner intends. Any of you who don’t like it, go find another website to post on.

    There’s brainly.com, answers.yahoo.com, tutorvista.com, enotes.com, and others. Go find ‘em!

  11. Ummmm, earlier today, GYMNAST, your the one who went around to everyone's questions when Ms. Sue wasn't here, and when students needed to check a answer, you told them to leave, and Cheka their textbook, now your calling @Ms. Sue a cyber bully because she called you out, that's manipulation at its finest. You have harassed a lot of people today in my opinion, so, maybe you should get blocked, this is Ms. She's website, you don't like it, LEAVE
