Megan Taylor Meier (November 6, 1992 - October 17, 2006 was a beautiful 13-year-old girl who was bullied in school and on the Internet. She battled depression for years and received cruel messages on her MySpace page.
On October 16, 2006, Megan went to school and handed out invites to her 14th birthday party and already picked out the polka dress to wear. At 3:20 pm, Megan returned home from school, sat down at her computer and soon received another cruel message from her online boyfriend.
Megan was crying so hard and showed her mother Tina the message. Her mom took one glance at the bad words and then scolded Megan for using harsh language. She said ""You're supposed to be my mom! You're supposed to be on my side!" and then took off running upstairs.
Her mom went into her bedroom and discovered Megan hanging from her closet door. Megan died the next day at St. Louis Children's Hospital. Her 14th birthday was three weeks away.
