Facebook went down. Instagram went down. Whatsup went down. 


We are in the middle of a pandemic where people are being forced to take medication they don’t want under the guise of saving those who are already gone.


But Facebook was down. 


Twitter had a sudden upswing in users. So one platform goes down and another takes up the slack. 


We didn’t bother to take time away from the screen. Board games or nature or books or the loved ones we are supposedly fighting so hard to protect.


But Facebook was down.


A girl got killed by a cop in London. The Taliban are selling weapons that we gave them. We are on the brink of civil war because people are making us take a shot to feed our families. A rogue virus still plagues the world so that masks are normal. And all anyone talked about all day


Facebook was down.
