Before we dive into the love that Twitter is sending Darnella Frazier’s way, it’s important to note that what she did was terrifying and something no one should have to go through, especially a teenager. We hope that she is receiving the help to put her on the road to healing, and we also need to remember that there are people out there who aren’t happy with what she did, and we need to stand up for her and protect her as this thrusts her into a spotlight.
