Last week's contest celebrating texting and the 21st birthday of the first SMS message had your fingers clicking! Here are six of our favorites:

  1. "Let my fingers do the talking." -xBriex 
  2. "Living in the world of LOL"- Monique 
  3. "Breaking up – just made super easy!"-eleni 
  4. "Generations of cursive down the drain."- TigerROS 
  5. "Remember when beeping someone was high-tech?"-Mzejay
  6. "Fingers clicking, responses whirring, communication instant."- Olivia
As we enter Week Four of our Caption Contest, we honor a man whose actions freed a nation from oppression and whose words spread wisdom and hope around the globe. Nelson Mandela—anti-apartheid icon, South Africa's first black president, and Nobel Peace Prize winner—passed away December 5th at the age of 95.
