Internet Inspiration: Outside Observers

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

So I saw the text post in quotes below while I was scrolling my lunch break away the other day. It made me laugh out loud hard enough to startle the person sitting next to me. But the more I thought about it the more I realized that this is a comical commentary on perspective. It’s so much easier to view this current election as a joke, instead of something that truly scares you in the back of your mind, when you aren’t living in the country. Take inspiration from the text post and write a scene that explores your character’s situation from an outside perspective. What limitations are on the outside viewers ability to observe? As with the text post the limitation is that the observation is only through social media, is there a distance or filter through which the outsider is observing?

“living in europe and hearing about the USA elections thru social medias is wild cause you get to know the candidates only via memes. so you got Cool Granpa, Unhip Lady, racist piece of corn and. a serial killer?”

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
