Those of you on Facebook will recognize the title of this post. For awhile now, an exhausting meme has been making its way around Facebook manipulating people into "reposting" pictures that say things like "Click 'like' if you love your mom," or "Like this picture of a girl who survived cancer, ignore if you don't care about her." Feelings of guilt wash over us as we see these... "Will my mom know I didn't repost this? I tell her I love her but is that enough? What if the little girl finds out I didn't 'like' her picture? Will her cancer come back?"
The more dramatic ones say things like "Like this picture for Heaven. Ignore it for Hell." Um, excuse me Facebook meme, but I don't think you really have that kind of authority. Yet even as I mentally sass Facebook, I wonder if angels are looking over my shoulder, writing in my permanent record that I did not press "like."
You know that old phrase, "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em"? Well, I decided to make some of these horrid memes of my own. If love me, you will repost them. If you want to see me dead, you will ignore them. If you like me, you will comment. But no pressure.
I don't want any of you to go to Hell, so please follow the directions on those pictures very closely. The rules of the internet are very strict. Let your conscience be your guide.
