Who do you wear a mask for?
I wear a mask for them -- my beautiful girls who shouldn’t have to deal with losing one of their parents. I wear a mask so they won’t have to be hospitalized because of dangerous after effects of a disease we still know so little about.
I wear a mask for my beloved parents, grandparents, sister, nieces, nephew, aunts, uncles and friends -- none of whom I’m willing to sacrifice.
I wear a mask because of how powerless I feel in the face of this invisible enemy. Wearing a mask and social distancing seem like such a small sacrifice to make, yet it is such a powerful weapon.
I wear a mask because behind those numbers -- those nameless and faceless numbers -- are other children, parents, grandparents, siblings and friends whose loved ones are mourning their untimely deaths, asking themselves, “What if? What if we did more?”
I wear a mask because this pandemic transcends political divides. This isn’t about partisanship, it is about humanity.
I wear a mask as a gesture of faith. I wear a mask to protect your loved ones and put my faith in you to wear a mask to protect my loved ones.
