Lately, I have been receiving these copy and paste FB messages about cancer. "If you know someone who is suffering or has suffered cancer," "copy and paste for one hour," "I know most of my friends will not follow these directions."
Well, in 2015, I had cancer, and in 2015, my mother died from it. And these posts infuriate me. They are meaningless. I would far, far prefer a poorly worded real message than these generic things that try to shame people.
Just because the underlying theme of these messages may be worthwhile (fight cancer, religion, etc.), I am repelled by the generic meaninglessness of copying and posting. If I really want to impact how people look at a subject, the least I can do is speak from the heart.
Sorry I flared. (Puts away soapbox).
