March 9,2010, Layla Grace: The Day Sharing A Loss On Social Media Became New Normal

March 9,2010, Layla Grace: The Day Sharing A Loss On Social Media Became New Normal - Video

March 9,2010, Layla Grace: The Day Sharing A Loss On Social Media Became New Normal The Daily Mail recently posted an article, which contained a reference to one of my older blog posts at SFGate.com when I was a popular “City Brights” blogger. I said that using Twitter to post the announced passing of the child named Layla Grace, and after a battle with Neuroblastoma, a rare cancer that develops from nerve tissue in infants, as her grieving parents had done was the new normal. That day was March 9th, 2010. I can't say I blame Layla Grace's parents for using Twitter that way: it was a good approach to the work of getting on with dealing with the loss of their child. Sadly, we've had so many posts of that type sense then, it's changed society. Loss used to be, and to some still is, regarded as a private affair. But what the internet has done is allowed people to communicate ideas and images rapidly over vast distances. So, that long-lost friend or relative who would have no idea what happened in the lives of Layla Grace's parents, but happened to be a social media consumer, may have received that news. Prior to the internet, that would have never happened. In all, I think this way that tech has connected us is for the better. It allows people to help a grieving person in many ways – and it even lauches a social movement that just may give us the gun conrol we need in America. Stay tuned.
