Selfie is the word of the year.

Some folks have said things like, “only someone with low self-esteem would post a selfie.”  Well, I don’t have a problem with them, and have posted my own.  Oxford Dictionary also doesn’t have an issue.  In fact, they’ve made “selfie” the word of the year.  Heck, there are many famous people who have embraced the selfie.  Van Gogh did it before there were cell phones.  Meryl Streep and (future President) Hillary Clinton did one together.  Lastly, Ellen DeGeneres photobombed a selfie of President Obama’s daughters.

Even Pope Francis has joined in on the fun, in this group selfie.

This group selfie shows that Pope Francis has also joined in on the fun.
