Pick the friend who goes against hatred, not the one who causes it.
quote by: Sommer S., 6th Grade, Sarasota Middle School, Sarasota, Florida
teacher: Kim Farrell
Social media can be dangerous when it adversely affects us, causing depression, suicide, violence, addiction and more. We are not always aware of what is good for us. We might even think that our parents are our biggest enemies. We can get so addicted to this nonsense and propaganda that we don't know what the world is beyond our screen—how beautiful it can be. My artwork represents how we can live safely in this diverse, beautiful world so that it doesn’t kill us.
