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.
