Daily Prompt: Switcheroo
by Sanctified Brother
If you could switch blogs with any blogger for a week, with whom would you switch and why? — Daily Prompt
I’d switch blogs with the insensitive blogger who posts pictures, articles, and videos of hapless victims enduring their fate. The blogger who enjoys showcasing others getting bullied or abused. The blogger who finds it amusing to take photos and videos of vulnerble indivduals, like the sleeping homeless, the young woman with a wardrobe malfunction, the unfortunate African-American male who looks like a perpetrator, the young woman who cuts herself, the single mother whose part-time job is servicing every male who says he’ll give her money.
Why would I switch? Because I’d clean the blog up and change it from being a negative influence to one that promotes peace and justice, advocating for the victims, instead of parading them around like sideshow freaks.
Jesus Christ, one of my heroes, says, “whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me…and…whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me…”
There’s more than enough hate and folly on the Internet. Cleaning up and throwing out the trash is a good thing.
