The Awesomeness Conspiracy Poet Laureate Anna Webb weighs in on the death of MTV’s Buckwild star Shain Gandee’s death and why it matters:
You can follow this and more of Anna’s videos on her YouTube page.
Think what you want about MTV, reality programming, or seemingly self-indulgent people who apparently bring tragedy upon themselves, we cannot afford to harden our hearts toward any loss of life for any reason. Television has the tendency to commoditize human life. All of us, regardless of faith tradition, have to remain vigilant. We must value every life, even those whose circumstances or choices disturb us at best or downright offend us at worst.
Thanks, Anna, for this timely reminder. You make your dad proud.
