Before Writing: Think about yesterday's assignment where we wrote about a time in which we felt that our perspective wasn't respected or seen. Now, it's time to transfer that into our online world.
Prompt: Do you think the internet is a place where only single stories get told? Have you ever judged a post, video, or comment without ever getting the whole story? You can either write about a specific time where you felt misjudged online or a time where you may have been the person misjudging. If you can't think of any personal examples, you may write about something you have witnessed on the internet that may have involved someone judging a single story. Think about viral videos or even celebrities that may be "canceled" over something they have said or done. Was only a single story being told?
**** Make sure your entry is 5-7 sentences and answers the prompt.
