In 2015 at the age of 16, Emily Trunko created a submission based blog, "The Last Message Received" on the social media network,Tumblr. Her request to her followers was to submit a last message received within an exchange whether it be from a friend, parent, ex-lover or whatever the circumstance may be. What she received spans the human emotions all the way from joy, sorrow, heartbreak, to love and hate. Trunko compiled the submissions into her book, The Last Message Received. Most of the messages include a brief backstory. Messages included are from parent to child, child to parent, friend to friend or ex friend and lover to ex lover. Some offer closure while others will leave you gobsmacked.The book may be a sad read for most, but it clearly demonstrates the power of a message. Trunko has hoped the book will make people more aware of the messages they send and maybe some may even decide to reach out to a loved one.
