Did she take her own life? It's always a tragic story when someone so young and beautiful is taken to soon~

We need to take a stand against bullying! There has to be a better way to reach the kids!! As a mother and a nurse I can't help to feel an overwhelming amount of responsibility to stand up and take action! She was to young! Our children should never have to feel like there is no way out..

Jillian - True, but so often our kids feel there is no way out and there is no hope… See my FB page INSPIRED by Rachael's Mom, jewelry creations inspired by courage OR INSPIRED by Rachael.com. I have a lot of good advice for parents and would love to discuss this further… what a CRIME for this beautiful young lady to feel as if she had no where to go… my usual question if this happened in school, AND I DON'T KNOW IF IT DID, is where are all the adults?? You can't tell me no one saw … I just don't get it… I'm so, so sorry for the loss of Cynthia… so sorry.
