Saving a life should be more important than anything to everyone. Covering your face with a mask may be uncomfortable or annoying or whatever your excuse for not wearing one. I for one know how terrible they are to wear but I don’t go out without one. Plus I have a face shield I wear as a second defense along with it.
Some say people that are scared should just stay home. I don’t leave my house except to do monthly shopping and for Dr appointments. I try to be as safe as I can to protect myself as well as others.
I’m one of those high risk people that’s more likely to have a severe case of covid. I have lung problems and at times struggle to breathe without being sick. I have a hard time breathing in a mask but I wear one. I get hot and start sweating but still it stays on. Sometimes I even feel like I’m going to pass out but guess what, I keep it on. I can’t stay home at all times. Who can see my Drs for me but me?
How hard is it to cover your face to cut down the spread and cut down the death rate? It’s not like you’ll live the rest of your life in a mask. Unless you’re around someone who doesn’t wear one and spreads it to you and you happen to be one of the people that pass away from it.
I for one want to see my kids grow much older and to see my grandbabies grow up. I know anyone can die at any given moment but why rush it when a mask can help prevent it as far as covid goes? How would you feel knowing you gave it to your spouse, grandparents, parents, your kids, your grandkids, siblings or anyone for that matter ? Do you think you would wish you would’ve just covered your damn face?
We Americans need to pull together and defeat this killer virus. Suck it up and suffer a little inconvenience, annoyance, irritation. Cover your face to protect yourself as well as others. If you can’t see the good in it you are blind to the world or don’t care about anyone but yourself.
Don’t forget while covering your face to social distance and stay home as much as possible. The sooner everyone does this the sooner things can get back to normal. While you’re at it say a prayer to God to heal our wounded world. Maybe prayers is what it’ll take to get through this. Maybe this is God’s way of getting people back to Him!
I can stay hid away on top of this mountain, on my farm, with my fur babies forever if need be. The only exception is going to see my doctor’s and getting certain items from the store. I can hunt my food. I can use natural herbs and ‘weeds’ for certain medicinal needs. My goats can give me milk. I can get eggs from chickens and I can butcher my own cow and/or pig. Everyone isn’t so lucky as to live out like I do and have no choice but to be out among others often.
Along with everything else stop and look at our health system. Our health care workers and the stress and anxiety on them. They live with their faces covered. They live separated from their families and in fear of transmitting it to someone they love. Put yourself in their shoes. Show some respect and care and empathy to your fellow Americans. We all live in this world together and it takes the effort of everyone of us.
