It was "21 Pictures That Will Restore Your Faith In Humanity" (link below).
If you need serious restoration and this doesn't work, nothing will.
I shared it on Sober Mommies with the comment,
"Kind and beautiful can win if you let it. Please let it."
Young celebs like Amanda Bynes struggle with identity or addiction and we can't wait to cast a stone to get retweeted on Twitter for our witty insults. Then we shudder and ask "Why?" when a bullied teen takes his or her life. Really?
Do we not understand the similarities? Society is a bully. The tabloids and shows like TMZ along with others exploiting the lives and pregnancies of teen girls all send terrible messages to our kids and we watch and laugh. We feel sorry for them to feel better about our own messy lives; not all of us, but enough to prove that shit sells.
What is the matter with us? Why are some allowed to make poor choices and others aren't? Shouldn't we all be allowed the freedom to make mistakes without global judgement and criticism? Some will argue that that is the price of fame. To those people I will ask, "Why is observing the pain and misery of others so popular? Who decides this?" WE DO.
What the hell are we doing, and why can't we see it?
How can we stop it?
Who's willing to join me in trying?
