One year ago today I pushed “Publish” to a letter to a major underwear company voicing my opinion about unattainable standards of sexuality and beauty thinking no one would ever read it; boy was I wrong.
In weeks and months that followed I have amassed nearly 4 million hits. I can not tell you how thankful I am for all of the shares, tweets, likes, Facebook messages and emails I have received from people from all over the world. This one letter set off a fire storm of interviews, phone calls and even landed me a segment on Headline News and CNN. It was a fast paced and exciting time (all of this happen during Holy Week 2013).
To be honest I never set out to write a viral post; I was just a concerned dad who wanted his voice to be heard. I wanted people to think about the messages the multi-billion dollar corporations were sending to young people, both girls and boys.
You never know what will “go viral” these days; express your opipions, stand up for those you can’t…. you never know who might be listening.
