Thoughts and Prayers

If you've been on Facebook in the past day or so, you've seen people all over the place adding a semi-transparent French flag over their profile pictures.

Here's the message with the invitation to do the same to my profile:

How does changing your profile picture on Facebook "support France and the people of Paris?!" 

This "thoughts and prayers" BS is just a way for people to show off to others about how much they "care" and how "aware" they are without having to actually DO ANYTHING to help anyone affected by a given tragedy. If people had to, say, donate a minimum of just $5 to the Red Cross to add this French flag to their profiles, then I wouldn't be seeing 99% of them.*

*My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who was offended by this post.
