Thirteen Reasons Why
You don’t know what goes on in anyone’s life but your own. And when you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re not messing with just that part. Unfortunately, you can’t be that precise and selective. When you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re messing with their entire life. Everything…affects everything.
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
When you post an embarrassing photograph or video of someone else or you forward an inappropriate email or you continue adding to the rumor, think twice. As one of my undergraduates said it best last semester, “If you’re not part of the solution; you are part of the problem.”
Props to Jay Asher for writing such a powerful story about the consequences of our actions in Thirteen Reasons Why. It is required reading for one of my undergraduate technology courses next semester and I strongly suggest that you add it to your must-read list too.
