A Nation Remembers

We wake to headlines and flags at half mast today in honor of our nation’s 41st President, George H.W. Bush (June 12, 1924 – November 30, 2018). Live updates will document the “who is who” and the streets of D.C. will gridlock with closures as his casket is moved from the Lincoln catafalque in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda. The Washington National Cathedral will echo with hymns and rituals passed down through generations of mourners.

Politics has attracted a different type of attention this week with stories of patriotism and gratitude rising from voices around the globe.

Somewhere this morning there is also a very nervous team of funeral directors, law enforcement, and public officials who have spent countless hours planning the logistics of this week. 

Many of us will likely be watching the state funeral live on TV or streaming online, and we will pause to listen, to remember, and to respect.

Listen, remember, respect. Three simple words – such a powerful impact.

  1. How’s it going, residentmortician?

    Want to be Instagram famous?

    Well, today I will teach you some things that will change forever the way you Instagram.

    Now, imagine that it is Friday and you’ve just woken up from a sound sleep.

    You roll over in bed to check your cell.

    Opening up Instagram.

    You‘re flabbergastered at what is waiting for you: Over 738 likes on one of your pictures! There, you see a a huge amount of likes on your pictures–over 652 on a single photo alone.

    Heading to the kitchen, you put the kettle on for some tea and check your Instagram while you wait.

    Presto! Another 20 likes.

    Ding—another message pops into your inbox from a follower. They are asking you for advice on how you manage your food, and are congratulating you on your third month of hitting the gym.

    A smirk appears on your face as you see another message. This person emailed you to let you know she loves your posts.

    Within minutes, your phone buzzes AGAIN.

    It is another message coming in. You glance up at the clock–almost time for the gym. You’ll have to hit them up later.
    Listen, residentmortician, most people just aren’t in control of their life. Seriously, they can’t even get themselves to have a balanced brekky, much less hit the gym.

    My job is to take people from Instagram no one to Insta-celebrity. (It sounds foolish, but results do not lie.)

    Imagine if you raised your engagement by 100%, or 1000%?

    Truth is, it is not the most difficult thing in the world to get more. For example, all the old pros use our website.

    In just minutes after posting, we get your images piled with likes.

    If you’re anything like our other clients, you will have a great chance of hitting the “Top Post” section in a very short time.

    Sound too good to be true? Just follow these steps to get a taste:
    1. Visit https://jabbertune.host
    2. Put your Instagram username.
    3. The three pictures you posted last will get 10 – 15 likes. Just like that.

    Being a regular staple on that page will supercharge your growth 10x, easy. But if you want the fame, you’ve got to reach for it. Are you ready?

    Happy image-uploading.
