Does the mask debate have you furious? Does it have you perplexed as to why people don't just "Wear the DAMN MASK??" Let me give you something to think about:
Who wants to sit at a red light when NO ONE is coming?? Who wants to go the speed limit ... ever? lol We do it though. Why? Because government says we have to? Yes, but more than that. We do it because it's the LAW and any reasonable person can understand risk vs reward in running that red light. Not just by our OWN personal experience, but because the EXPERTS agree. Police, EMTs, Doctors, politicians... your mom and even you. Think about the multiple contrasting studies that come out DAILY. The MIS-information regarding the positive cases. (Florida, for one, is being investigated for false positives.) The COMPLETE LACK of PERSONAL experience for MOST of us. How many friend of a friend of a friend do you have to go through before you "know" someone who is SICK or God forbid, has died? (I am truly sorry for your loss if it is very close to you.) The virus is real. I honestly don't know ANYONE who does not believe its's out there. I understand those who want everyone behind a mask. Or behind doors locked away. I understand not wanting to be forced to wear a mask based on the information I read. Maybe I need to read what YOU are reading. Maybe you need to read what I am reading. I don't have the answer, I just want people to think about things critically. Stop the screaming at little children (yes, that happened) because mom or dad isn't wearing a mask, because it IS possible they can not. Stop throwing dirty looks at folks wearing them. Its the fear THEY are facing. If you do not want to wear one, shop, eat, work somewhere else. If you can not possibly risk the danger of contracting Covid, stay home. This issue is a jumping off point for so much hate and anger. Stop. Think about what is really going on, and lets all get through this until the truth, the FULL truth and reason for this, whatever that may be, is revealed.
