Rice stood up to cyber bullying

In reading Mike Preston's rundown of the Ray Rice decision ("Finally, no more Ray Rice in Baltimore," Nov. 28), I find it sad that someone from the "hometown" newspaper in Maryland does not give any credit or mention of the landmark and potentially life-saving cyber bullying law which Mr. Rice played a huge role in getting passed.

He may never wear purple again — and I will admit I am not concerned about "black clouds" surrounding the NFL or the Ravens (they were never interested in making important social change anyway). But Baltimore is losing a good man, concerned about important things other than football although he was pretty great at that, too.

As the mother of Grace McComas, the lost child the law was named for, we are finding that even some in local law enforcement are not aware of the new protections offered to Maryland children by this law. Perhaps it is sadly because football and negative news are what tend to be covered. We will forever be grateful for his time here and thanks to Ray Rice, "Grace's Law" is here to stay.
