Earlier today a student armed with a knife at Franklin Regional Senior High School near Pittsburgh, PA attacked and injured at least 20 students. Several have been hospitalized with serious injuries but no deaths have been reported as of this time. Thinking quickly, student Nate Scimio pulled the fire alarm and alerted other students of the emergency. After he was taken to the hospital, this selfie happened.
Frankly, making some derisive comment about "kids these days" seems totally unwarranted when the kid involved likely saved lives. Of course, that didn't stop the press from asking for interviews and snarky comments like this:
#nomakeupselfie had humble beginnings, as a gesture of support from one female author to another about criticisms regarding her looks. However, after others began taking part and adding "#breastcancerawareness" and other tags, the donations began pouring in to Cancer Research UK. In just over two days, the organization has raised over £2 million, with more to come. Check out a video about the phenomenon here:
From Know Your Meme:
"On March 19th, 2014, Brighton University student Lizzie Durley created the Facebook page "Sellotape Selfie." Durley explained to The Daily Mail that she got the idea from a scene from the 2008 film Yes Man in which the character of Carl Allen, a bank loan officer-turned-robber played by Jim Carrey, wraps and distorts his face with clear tape as to avoid being recognized."
