      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

  1. **Have any other parents on this site have to live with knowing that the images of the body of their child is forever archived on the internet by a corporation? **Any suggestions? Our child was killed in July 2016 in a traffic accident. Global News, the local TV news company, had a news story of the accident at that time. The Global News website archived the old news story on their website showing images our child’s dead body. I asked Global News if they would remove the archived news story, or remove the images of my child’s body from the file, or remove the links to the archived file (linking my child’s name to the archived file). Global News will not. I had legal advice, and have contacted several government members and offices, and I understand I have no legal right to ask Global News due laws protecting “journalistic use”. Global News archiving the report on their website continues victimization of the victim, and us. As Bryn’s parents, we have no legal rights to how a corporation uses our child’s images or identifies him on the internet. Global News has all the legal rights to images of our child’s dead body and his identification on the internet, since that journalistic. Global TV and the parent company Corus Entertainment have the rights to run ads and make money from ads, for any viewing of the archived accident report with the images of our child’s body. It is difficult to accept any of that is right. Do not want images of my child’s dead body on the internet. The legal privileges of a journalistic corporation and the more recent internet ability for unlimited data storage and internet speed, and the unlimited victimization to the grieving by a corporation, is disproportionate the lack of any legal rights of individuals. Our child was killed commuting to work with a co worker for a summer job before starting first year at university. The co worker was driving; the accident occurred the morning of the third day of their commute together. He was killed 12 days after grade 12 graduation. Bryn was 17. The car driver got a new car, and a reference letter from the employer. The truck driver got his truck repaired. And Bryn gets to be a dead body on Global News, forever. Somehow it adds to the despair. Sincerely, Mark
  2. I'm a graduate student in Medical Anthropology at UCSF/UC Berkeley, and my dissertation research looks at grieving online. The idea emerged out of the experience of losing my own father, who died unexpectedly 2 years ago. My project specifically explores how accessing sites such as online memorials, Facebook profiles, and digital archives might allow people to feel connected to dead loved ones. If you visit a particular website or sites to connect with a loved one who has passed, please consider participating in my research. To learn more about the project and about participating, please contact me at molly.hales@berkeley.edu.
