Cyber bullying is killing us. The yellow rose represents Joy, Happiness, Friendship, Delight, Promise, the human qualities that should have been offered to those in distress.  Hope of a new beginning,  and also remembering loved ones. Friendship is the primary meaning of the yellow rose. Lets change for the better and not destroy another bright light.

Minister of Justice, The Honourable Robert Douglas Nicholson
Indict crime of severe cyber bullying as, "Inciting hatred", and enforce it!!! We need strong enforceable sentences. In the cases it cause someone to commit suicide, add to the charges, "that has caused death of person".
We need to protect our most vulnerable. Being the victim of a hate crime can also cause depression. Thank you for your time, regards

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I have a family member who has suffered cyber-bullying and has had many mental issues since then. It's not fair to any child who has to go through this. There needs to be stricter regulation on cyber bullying as it is a problem that is too often ignored by schools.

      I have 3 teen daughters and it is really disturbing that the present laws do so little to protect them from such actions. It is time for real change.
