It’s difficult to follow some viral trends on social media since I tend to avoid people who pass on urban legends and hoaxed photos as real. But this latest picture of “ghost nurse” was SO OBVIOUSLY made by a ghost app that I find myself questioning the future of America when people can fall for this stuff.
May 14th 2014 a woman by the name of Laura Harrison posted a photo of what she claimed her daughter’s boyfriend took a picture the night her daughter was going to have their baby.
Suddenly, June of 2015 the photo has gone viral as a “great catch”. For me, it was immediately obvious that this was a ghost app, but for many others that fact was not as apparent. Of the 8k+ comments and growing, the majority were those believing that this was a real ghost.
An “instant ghost” app on a smart phone can create a picture of “ghost” with a few clicks. But the writer at Memento Mori, “Paranormal Anna”, thought that the zombified nurse deserved some credit and respect. She is a real person. She had a name and a history.
Her name was Georgina Pope, a Canadian nurse who served in South Africa under harsh conditions at the turn of the 20th century. A warped picture of this dedicated, honorable woman is being used to entertain gullible people on FB. That’s a shame.
