Dear Internet,

Lately you have been in many major topics of discussion, and mostly the cause of many topics of discussion. I am writing you this letter based on events over the past few years and the years to come.

A request I would like to address is: please stop making stupid people famous.

It’s great that people can lip sync and start Twitter feuds with each other, but those things aren’t going to help with what is happening in the real world right now.

Make those who want to create change famous, talk about the people that are doing good in this world. Some need inspiration in their lives to start making changes, and the people that you promote can inspire them greatly.

You have the power to connect people from Canada to Japan, from Brazil to France. Use that ability for good and share with us what really matters, instead of petty gossip and trivial matters.

Thank you, Sarah Hesp
