Today is December 14th of 2017 and today I’m sad to say that if things keep going this way, my blog will be dead soon. Because I’m a poor high school girl from a really poor family and we can’t afford to pay for the repercussions of the net neutrality repeal. So if you’re reading this and it’s not too late, vote send a letter to your senator. Send a letter to another senator. It doesn’t matter your age, job, residency status, nothing. And there are pre-loaded letters so you don’t have to think about it, just do. This isn’t a game anymore, this is serious.
Just in case you don’t know what net neutrality does yet, allow me to explain in the simplest terms possible.
