"Albert Einstein said, 'I fear the day that technology will take on our humanity ... the world will be populated by a generation of idiots.'" That was one of the rude comments shared alongside this photo of Molly Lensing.


The pediatric nurse and mother-of-three from Illinois is the woman in this viral photo, which has been endlessly spread around on social media since last year.

"You have no idea what the story behind it is..."
