This is heartbreaking.
NYPD Officer Rafael Ramos is one of the men who was murdered on Saturday in Brooklyn, and he sadly left behind his 13-year-old son Jaden Ramos.
Following the horrible shooting, Jaden posted a message to his Facebook, saying:
This is so sad!
A girl from Indiana was bullied so relentlessly by her peers that she eventually ended up taking her own life.
The girl's mother Danielle Green read her letter to the Senate Education Committee where she hoped Congress would pass a bill that made harsher rules about bullying.
Green's daughter Angel wrote a letter specifically for her bullies.
“To all the bullies that have called me names, [you] are the reason why I am feeling the way I am now. I didn’t want to die. I just wanted to be saved from the pain."
In a separate letter to her mother, Angel wrote:
“I’m really sorry that I did this … don’t you EVER think it was your fault. Because it’s not. I love you so much and I couldn’t ask for a better mom … but my heart can’t take this pain. It’s bullying that killed me. Please get justice.”
That is just. Heart wrenching. Our deepest condolences to her mother.
Angel killed herself on March 5th, from a rope on a tree. The tree was passed by her school bus every day, and her body was seen by all of her tormentors.
Here's what the mother said:
“She did this before the bus was going to be there. so her bullies would see her.”
We sincerely hope something is done to battle bullying.
A little girl was lost way too early because of its devastating effects.
