The Web is abuzz today with the tragic story of Megan Meier, who committed suicide a year ago, but whose story is now being told by her agrieved parents. Full details (and 76 pages of readers’ heartfelt comments) are online at the St. Charles Journal. I’m the first to caution letting one story represent all online issues, but this is a tale about failures in understanding, communication and compassion. Sharing this story within families might encourage a child who is being victimized to reach out so that those around can respond with love and support.
