Essay Question: Social media changed the world. Today we can connect immediately and draw instant conclusions. This has a profound impact on how efficiently we communicate, but it also, at times, erodes our sense of individuality, compassion, and empathy. Finesse and tact can get lost in the noise. This is a problem when dealing with grief, a fundamentally human emotion programmed into us long before the invention of the cellphone. Write an essay about how social media can play a role in the healing process. What are some best practices when communicating with a grieving person or dealing with grief on the Internet? And how do we give grief the time it deserves in a fast-paced world?
