Media in bad times

Last week a friend died. That is sad. But with (social) media, connections are made so fast. Friends over the whole world were told instantly. Best friends and family off course in person, but still with media, mostly by phones.
This week we shared our memories of our friend online, we connected on whatsapp and of course we said goodbye in reallife. By our media we could reach everyone on time, share our memories and felt connected. That’s why I heart my media.
