Facebook grants grieving dad’s desperate wish
In honor of its 10th birthday, Facebook offered users a fun memento: a 62-second ‘look back’ video highlighting your biggest moments on Facebook. It’s 62 seconds one father in mourning desperately wanted to see.
‘Ever do something crazy ’cause you just don’t know what to do anymore? Well, that’s what I’m doing now,’ John Berlin of St. Louis, Missouri, said in a video.
In the video, Berlin begged Facebook to grant him access to his late son Jesse’s profile so that a ‘look back’ video could be created. Jesse passed away January 28, 2012 at 22 years of age.
‘I’m calling out to Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook. You’ve been putting out these new movies — these one minute movies that everyone has been sharing, and I think they’re great,’ Berlin said.
