Hi there thank you for taking the time to read this. I would really appreciate your help as many of you know social media and the news can be a very powerful thing with sharing information on happy and sad events. But sometimes when something devastating happens like a loss of a loved one the news is reported along side pictures. These pictures could be of the event in which family and close friends do not want splashed across local news and social media platforms its a very private and extremely difficult time. If you could just put yourself in there position for just a second and no that now is not the time. Im not saying not to report this news but just not put any photo graphic evidence of whats happened or names UNLESS THE FAMILY MEMBERS GIVE CONSENT, people may end up finding about tragedy through the news and it can have a devastating effect. Everyone grieves in there own way and may not want to have to answer people through tx,phone calls or social media. Not everyone will agree with this but if you do please can you sign this we dont want to stop the news but just change the way we show the content. Thank you so much. Sonia
