Why I Heart Media

At it’s worst media is just a collection of tools used to scream : Look at me!. In it’s purest form, however, I believe media is used to communicate 4 simple words saying: you are not alone.

Now I’m not sure if that’s true or not, but for someone who has been batteling depression since the age of 14 I took great comfort in that idea. So here is me, using my media, saying to you:

You are not alone.
