    I just watch a video now, and  a lady shot her self, she was a social worker, helping foster kids.. What really touch me was her last words before she killed her self.. That was what led me to this question.... She said " I have helped thousands of kids,  and now I will be remembered for just one kid"

      That is terribly sad.  I think she should have not been so concerned with what other people thought of her though.  The 1000+ kids she helped would always know the truth so would the lady's family and friends.  How sad.  As far as if 1Mistake is enough to crucify someone, it depends on the mistake.  If there would always be trust issues with this person and  it was a very serious mistake with serious consequences I think firing the person would be enough.  I hate the way the media buts their noses into peoples private affairs.  Is that what happened?  Did the social worker have her mistake flashed all over the news?  That would be terrible and unjustified regardless of what she did.  I can't imagine a greater hurt than that.  Everyone, people you don't know judging you and finding you wanting without even getting to know you.

        The child died... She was sue to court.. It was all over the media.. It hurts me so much, how people quickly forget the good you use to do and will judge and fight with you to the end just because, you turn away just 10 seconds

          That is very sad.  The media can be a terrible thing.  She had a big responsibility and she did a great job for many people for a long time.  It is so sad she made a mistake and it ended her and the child's lives.  That is tragic.

            It depends how the child died and what exactly the circumstances were.  I don't mean to sound cruel, but it depends on the situation. The media can be savages, but, at the end of the day, this woman will have been accountable to someone. Perhaps she was a scapegoat, perhaps not, either way she doesn't sound like someone who was prepared to fight her corner, for whatever reason.

    The video was so touching.. Personally, I don't think it's enough.. Frustrating the woman was very wrong.. It was the frustration and hate plus zero appreciation for the Life she had live was what lead her to her death..
    Not that she didn't care, she just turned one second away from that particular kid not for her self interest, she turned away to attend to kids who just lost both parents and she felt they needed her more. It is just so sad.
