Dearest Jill — An open letter to Jill Robredo and colleagues in media

You are only 13,  and I feel terrible how people seem to keep forgetting this fact when they speculate and report about the events surrounding the plane crash. When they show photographs of you and your sisters with your faces buried in your hands, when they upload photographs of you sobbing into the arms of your classmates and teachers who have come to bring you comfort. These visuals do not help at all and only show a lack of respect for your private pain.

Trying/practicing putting on make-up and fixing my hair. Lol. This is gonna be harder than I thought. And its harder to take a selfie for its own sake. #selfie So cool how I can take Mom and #gamerchef around museums. This was for my birthday celebration. #art #museum #amorsolo Loot from #cosmania2015. That Bing Bong bottlecap necklace from @heyhodgepodge is so cute! And I'm still trying to find a place for the cute stickers from Mokatokki. It's sooo me! Of course I always keep the tickets and stuff for my journal. #cosplaymania2015 #cosplaymaniamagic #kawaii #loot Printed souvenir portrait yesterday by #cosplaymaniamagic. #cosmania2015 #cosplaymania2015 #mtg #magicthegathering #gamerchef Too much heartbreak Saturday.
