Breanna Mitchell’s story was simple. She and her dad, a World War II and Holocaust history buff, were planning on visiting the Auschwitz concentration camp but her father passed away a year before the scheduled visit. When she finally made it there, she tweeted a selfie at the camp as a tribute to her dad that she actually arrived. A month later, her profile blew up once it circulated outside of her circle of friends.
In all honesty, I believe she did a great job handling the onslaught of criticism over the photograph. Then again, it takes a calm and mature individual to handle the praises and insults with a grain of salt. Her Twitter account has been set to private, incidentally.
Parents, are you kids mature enough to handle what consequences could come forth when they have to defend a post, a picture, or a comment about a controversial subject?
