It's so very sad that it had to come to this so anti-bullying legislation could get passed.The heartbreaking suicide last month of West Lafayette’s Angel Green has now led to anti-bullying legislation at the state’s capital.

By the bus stop they found their Angel hanging from a tree. On her bed at home, for her stricken mother to find, the 14-year-old Indiana girl left a note that read, in part, “Why did I deserve this pain?”

Green was an 8th-grader, who hanged herself March 5. The note she left behind penned in a careful hand and addressed to her classmates  pointed clearly to the growing menace of bullying.

The girl’s devastated mother, Danielle Green, took her daughter’s plea straight to the state legislature. It worked.
