    Dear Media….stop with all the “fear mongering” when it comes to the flu. She did not die of the flu. Write a better headline to not create fear that if people get the flu, they’ll potentially die.

    Secondly, is that really her real name? Mahrijana (so close to marijuana). Nobody else in the family has an “un-normal” name.
