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.

Math, science, history, unraveling the mystery... #bigbangtheory #milktea #tea #gamerchef Chicken in oyster sauce with vegetables and cashew. Late Sunday lunch by #gamerchef. #lunch #food Afternoon milk tea, homemade by #gamerchef. #tea #milktea Tuna and couscous experiment. Same method with couscous, 1 part couscous, 2 parts water, leave half a lemon in there, and season with cumin and salt. Cover and set aside. Squeeze the lemon into the couscous when its fluffy. For the topping, sauté chopped garlic in extra virgin olive oil, then toss in plain canned tuna. Add garbanzos and corn. Season with rosemary and sage (or whatever herb you want, but rosemary is important for fish). Serve with fresh cucumber. Season everything with a bit of cayenne pepper to taste. I'm thinking on how to make this dish prettier. But I liked it! :) #recipe #dinner #couscous #tuna Awesome brunch, yorkshire pudding with cheese, and bacon strips. Sprinkle with basil and cayenne pepper. Served with brewed coffee and carrot juice. #brunch #bacon #pudding #gamerchef Tanduay Black and Sheldon Cooper. #drink #gamerchef
