This morning I was cruising through Freshly Pressed, and this post http://acculturated.com/2012/08/23/the-regrettable-rise-of-omg/ made me say, “OMG! SERIOUSLY?” Yes, out loud. I found it interesting that the author used teenage girls as the reference for all things trivial and banal. Teenage girls, and boys for that matter, emulate what they see and hear all around them as they try desperately to navigate the confusing messages they are getting from adults; people they are supposed to trust!
The author went on to quote Kipling, who I believe is one of the greatest writers of all times, saying…’Words–“the most powerful drug used by mankind,” according to Kipling–can change minds and alter behavior.’
Well, while that is true, an OMG at the top of my lungs is in order about the video posted by one of my favorite bloggers, that I have reblogged here. It should be Freshly Pressed as an outstanding example of just how true that Kipling quote really is. Watch it, and if it doesn’t move you and make you want to shout OMG at the top of your lungs, then I really don’t know what else to say.
I know, that comes as a shock, doesn’t it?
