Alex and Maggie
Alex sits on the bench outside of the shark tank window with her head in her hands. She is overly familiar with this spot. This has become her place to come after school, to read, or to study. She would much rather be at the aquarium than in her own home nowadays. It is hard to determine who subjects more abuse her way; her mom or her stepdad. Either way, she doesn't want to hear it today. She tries not to believe it. But it is hard not to believe it when that is all she hears and sees from the moment she hits the front door.

Social media is killing our mental health.
As of January 2022, there were 4.8 billion social media users around the world.* Out of all of the social media apps that exist, Facebook is by far the most widely used, with more than two and a half million monthly users. Don't get me wrong: social media has its perks. With each of these, though, comes a problem that I think makes social media much more toxic than helpful.

It's going to come with some issues.
