Justice for Megan Meier

So, have you all heard the story about this little girl that was bullied by a parent of a child that did not like Megan? They played an evil prank on her for months pretending to be a guy that Megan grew fond of. She talked to him all the time and began to really like him. She had self esteem issues and a few other things. Little did she know that it was the girl and her mother behind the monitor doing such a horrible thing.

I am a tabloid junkie and I grabbed the People magazine like I always do when I have a few extra dollars and in here was her story. I read it and was pulled into it and was just blow away by this. She had her whole life ahead of her and these people took it. After she got a nasty message of something like that the world would be a better place without her in it, it wasn't much longer and she told her mother she wasn't feeling well and she went to her room. Not very much long later her mother went to check on her and found her hanging in her closet with a belt wrapped around her neck. Can you imagine this?! I was in such shock and so angry at this parent that could be so immature and cruel and wanted justice for Megan. I have a little more information I got off of her website and will post below~
