Cyberbullying and Grace McComas Deserve Attention
Kudos to Susan Reimer on her commentary (Blue Ribbons for Grace March 26) highlighting the courage and compassion of Grace McComas' classmates in the face of administrative obstacles. Grace's friends, who are seeking to honor and celebrate the life of Grace during what should have been her graduation, have realized that cyberbullying is not a trivial issue. It is a serious, 21st century problem our young people are struggling with. Grace's classmates should be honored for bringing this issue to the fore while also celebrating Grace's life. As the honored sponsor of Grace's Law, I am touched by students using their time and energy to do something so positive and proactive in a world where pressures often push them in the other direction. I too hope Glenelg's administration will reconsider its decision and allow "blue ribbons for Grace at graduation."
