What makes people tick? As people with individual personalities, everyone is different. We all think our own thoughts. We all have the right to think uniquely. So why do some try to convince others to change their thought patterns. However, if the thoughts are dark and dangerous to oneself, then it is with utmost importance that others should and must step in. What constitutes the rules?
There is a very good side to the internet and also a very dark side. I have seen both. The dark side can totally swallow you up and unfortunately, you may not come out the same way you went in. We are all vulnerable – young and old alike. When I hear parents and adults say the words ‘It will never happen to my kids’ or ‘It will never happen to me’, I think we all have to step back and re-examine those words. Because tragedy can happen to anyone. No one is immune. Not even if you live in a bubble.
I had breakfast with Raffi today and he gave me a copy of the book he recently wrote and published. It is called #lightwebdarkweb and is about the critical need to reform social media, especially for young users. I have been reading it electronically but now I have a hard copy to make notes from and in. It can purchased at the following website – http://www.childhonouring.org/lightwebdarkweb.html . You can also get it through Amazon.ca – http://www.amazon.com/Lightweb-Darkweb-Reasons-Reform-Re-Forms/dp/0986644617
Look really closely at the cover of the book and see if you can find the symbol Raffi placed in memory of Amanda.
I thank Raffi for his kindness and for writing this book. His words (written, spoken and sung) are all tributes to Amanda and the legacy she has left behind for us to continue working and building upon. The road ahead is slightly uphill but with big pushes, we can make it.
To Amanda – you have left behind the gift of your legacy.
