Parlors

“One tweet from a girl I follow that lives where I used to live comes to mind. On December 28th 2016 she tweeted “I have never wanted to die more than I have lately.” This really hit a nerve to read this on my timeline between memes. I could have easily skipped over this and not even noticed and that could have a much more serious effect if a lot of other people did it as well.”

This was a blog post I had written after reading the Friendship chapter in Reclaiming Conversations. I talked about this the following day in our class parlor. It seemed to have struck a good conversation about if people are doing this on social media for attention or they believe its a good way to seek help.
