Cynthia White holds up a photo of her great-niece, Eyana White, 12, as she stands Monday during a candlelight vigil surrounded by close friends and family while imploring the gathered crowd to take action and to not let an innocent child die in vain. According to those closest to the seventh grader, relentless bullying at school and online led Eyana to commit suicide by hanging herself in her home Dec. 17.
