Reach out and touch

Tragedies, real hardship cannot be felt over a tweet.

Total empathy is not encapsulated by emoticons.

A hash tag? Please.

The tools are here to help spread the message, not to replace human interaction.

Connections are deeper than a thumbs up.

Nothing can substitute the real power of looking someone in the eye and telling them truthfully how sorry something has happened.

More important than words is showing up because in this moment you can do something.

Words matter. Action, even more. Emojis and thumbs-up are the lowest form of empathy.
