Y.O.L.O. The Phrase That Does Not Pay… Young Adult Dies Shortly After Tweeting It Killing Four Others!!
The YOLO phrase has been around for decades, so I wouldn’t blame a Drake for this… You hear it in movies, sitcoms etc… Drake, however, made it a popular slang amongst young adults such as Ervin McKiness who unfortunately found himself about to experience the implication all too soon… These kids need help. They need someone DRILLING them about what it is to be a responsible adult and still live your life. It doesn’t matter if you’re 21, 22, 23… 24 is pushing it but does that mean you stop coaching a young aspiring anything, from maximizing his/ her potential?!! R.I.P. and prayers for ALL the family and friends who lost their child, their cousin, their friend.
