Desperately seeking @ElyssaD: The power of Twitter…. | Project World Awarenesshttp://www.projectworldawareness.com/2010/10/desperately-seeking-elyssad-the-power-of-twitter/
She never asked for help or money. She asked to be heard. She asked for people to pay attention. She asked that people not marginalize her due to her situation. She asked that people not question “why;” how someone educated at Columbia, Penn State, and Vanderbilt could end up this way. Does that matter? Should it matter? Is it your business to judge and determine if she were worthy of your sympathy or concern or help? No. Our tax dollars go to fund programs that should be held accountable. Programs that should help people who legitimately need it. ”Personal responsibility,” you say? Screw you! How can you take that holy grail of personal responsibility if the system prevents you from doing just that? When all you want is a “hand up” not a “hand out,” but the hand only slaps you in the face?
We should be thankful that there are those like Elyssa who can articulate the needs and problems with the system. Are her tweets at times confusing and disjointed? Yes. Can she be combative with those who push her? Yes. Does that mean that she should be silenced or ignored? No.
