Inspiration

A girl has a serious argument with her boyfriend and they break up. Angry, her boyfriend publishes a private and, possibly, inappropriate picture of her all over the internet and through texting. Her privacy has been violated and now she feels isolated. No one respects her anymore, she has lost friends and is being made fun of and harassed. The photos being blown out the window signify her private world becoming public. The big cell phone is chained to her weighing her down. She is depressed and feels alone. As the hand in the corner pointing show, we have a responsibility to protect our own privacy by “thinking before we send”. Also, we have a responsibility to respect the privacy of others.
