Cartoon: Book banning and the dangers of putting literature to rest

This is a cartoon that depicts the dangers of banning books, a growing trend throughout schools recently. This cartoon shows the different aspects of life that are effected by banning books such as critical thinking and empathy. This is shown with the image of a graveyard because by banning these books the school systems are killing the stories and the lessons they provide. These books are crucial to teaching students various life lessons and by banning them kids are sheltered from difficult topics they need to be exposed to. This cartoon also shows a man digging a grave while the TikTok logo is on his back. This shows how social media is a larger problem for youth than the books being banned.
