Something to Think About: Figuring Out What's Important and Learning How to Defend It

Blending motivational quotes with her own insights, the author empowers young readers with the uplifting message that perfection isn’t a prerequisite for enjoying a good life—and that learning from your mistakes is actually one of life’s most beneficial lessons. The topics are in no particular order, making it easy for tweens and teens to read a page at random and contemplate however much, or little, interests them in the moment. And, as a bonus, the back of the book features personal pages with space for readers to write down their own thoughts—whether goals, memories, favorite quotes, or something else entirely.

Bonnie Burns's insight:

Something to Think About started as a handwritten birthday letter from Aunt Kimmie Bebo to her ten-year-old niece, but when a friend asked for a copy to share with her own teenage nieces upon their graduation, the author realized the universal nature of her message. Now a coming-of-age manual, this missive inspires young adults of all ages to consider the questions and challenges that accompany growing up and invites them to form their own opinions as to how they might handle the myriad situations they’ll likely encounter along the way.

Houston Woman Scammed By Fake Facebook Army Captain

Houston Woman Scammed By Fake Facebook Army Captain | Prozac Moments | Scoop.it

A woman in Houston, Texas, had just moved out on her ex in May 2015 when she received a Facebook message from a mysterious stranger. The note was from an attractive Army captain stationed in Afghanistan, telling the 39-year-old mom that he “found her interesting and nice.” 

Bonnie Burns's insight:

These kinds of scams may seem like they’d be impossible to fall for, but they prey on people who are vulnerable and looking for a relationship. However, the woman in this case ignored a ton of obvious warning signs. If a stranger messages you on the Internet, there’s a good chance it’s a scam. If they demand money, it almost definitely is.

Facebook Photo May Have Led To Home Invasion, Murder

Facebook Photo May Have Led To Home Invasion, Murder | Prozac Moments | Scoop.it

Last week, a 50-year-old electronics repairman in Philadelphia named Tony Harris posted a photo on Facebook of his wife holding thick stacks of cash. Exactly one week later, three young men broke into his home and murdered him. 

Bonnie Burns's insight:

This is an extremely serious and sad case that shows just how dangerous it can be to reveal personal information on social media. Criminals have been known to scope out social media profiles to find out when potential robbery targets are out of town, but this is far worse than that. If you own something valuable, definitely think twice before bragging about it publicly online.
