Please don’t make people with depression feel guilty for their lack of interest in things or their inability to motivate themselves please and thank you goodbye.

On that note, please don’t make people with anxiety feel guilty about their inability to do tasks you deem simple and literally call them children and tell them to grow up because of it.

Just months after the shocking revelations of the Holocaust’s devastation of European Jewry, Bess Myerson was crowned the first (and still only) Jewish Miss America on September 8, 1945.

She was pressured to change her name to “Beth Merrick” for the pageant, but the Bronx native told her pageant director that she wouldn’t do it. “I said … the problem is that I’m Jewish, yes? And with that kind of name it’ll be quite obvious to everyone else that I’m Jewish. And you don’t want to have to deal with a Jewish Miss America,” Myerson recounted. “And that really was the bottom line. I said I can’t change my name. You have to understand. I cannot change my name. I live in a building with two hundred and fifty Jewish families. The Sholom Aleichem apartment houses. If I should win, I want everybody to know that I’m the daughter of Louie and Bella Myerson.”
