The Last Selfie She Ever Took

Technology has made our lives SO much easier and better in myriad ways—smartphones especially have increased our ability to stay in touch, find directions when we’re lost, and even order groceries on the go.

However, this technology also comes with a few down sides—most notably when it comes to safety. Smart phones not only provide us with unprecedented access to unhealthy content online and the ability to easily meet and be targeted by strangers, but they also tempt us time and time again to use them when we shouldn’t.

32-year-old Courtney Ann Sanford is a PRIME example that we all need to learn from—adults and teens alike.

In April 2014, Courtney, a professional with two college degrees, was driving down the road when one of her favorite songs came on, “Happy” by Pharrell Williams. (I love that song too!) Wanting to share how great she was feeling in that moment, Courtney took a selfie and posted it to Facebook.

It was the last thing she ever did.
