AU student fed up with “thoughts and prayers” statuses makes her status “thoughts and prayers are not enough," awarded Nobel Peace Prize

How this visionary is changing the world

The past few weeks have been plagued with unimaginable tragedy. From fires in California to hurricanes in Puerto Rico to terrorism in Las Vegas, recent news headlines have read like the lyrics to a sadistic Pitbull song.
In the wake of all these tragedies, many have turned to Facebook to post statuses sending their “thoughts and prayers” to those affected.
But not Rachel McTitster.

The AU student is now being hailed a hero. Fed up with all the empty “thoughts and prayers” statuses littering her newsfeed, she has made the brave decision to change her status to “thoughts and prayers are not enough.”
Within hours of the post, The NRA was abolished, power was restored to all of Puerto Rico, a machine was invented that can stop hurricanes, fire has been made illegal, and The Big Bang Theory was cancelled.

Rachel McTitster will be the second youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner in history, right after Malala, who recently spoke at American University. While some have speculated that Malala’s speech may have inspired McTiter’s courageous endeavors, there’s no doubt McTitster will serve as the new Malala to young girls for years to come.

Though not many can be as noble and brave as McTitster, there is still something you can do. You can donate to hurricane relief, call your local congressmen and make your voice heard, or help California wildfire victims. Who knows? Maybe your thoughts and prayers wont be complete garbage after all.
