You know what makes me upset? A young woman whose death captures the attention of a nation. Why, does that make me upset you ask? Because it happens all the time and we chose to not let it effect us or we don’t even care.
So today I’m torn, between the feeling of happiness for the new pinnacle of that humanity has reached with the new record from the highest space jump and the sadness I feel for a nation that chooses to be deaf and blind.
Setting science aside for the day for you,
Rest in peace Amanda Todd.
