Generation Gap: These girls want you to care about others, even when it isn’t trendy Rare Screenshot

These days, it seems like every time there’s a mass shooting or an act of terrorism somewhere in the western world, people on Facebook almost immediately start posting status that are some version of #PrayFor____.

People of our generation are quick to voice support on social media, but sometimes we wonder whether or people actually do anything outside of that trendy Facebook post to help a community in need. Sure, it’s always great to voice support, but sometimes you’re left to wonder whether those vocals are ever translated into action.
