Op-Ed: Never Mind, It’s Just Another Amber Alert

WESTWOOD — Oh my god, my phone’s buzzing. Do you hear that? What if it’s something important? Maybe it’s Mark calling, finally confessing his love for me! Or maybe, it’s my mom calling me back about going home this weekend. Did I set a timer to remind myself of something? Wow, the possibilities are endless. It could even be a notification from that presidential alert system that Trump organized. It’s been ringing a lot, so at this point I know it’s something important. It’s so crazy what humans are capable of now with all of this technology right at our finger– oh. Never mind. It was just another Amber Alert.
