Why I Wear a Face Mask!

Wear a Face Mask

When I wear a mask in public, or decline an invitation to a party or to come inside:

📷 I want you to know that I am educated enough to know that I could be asymptomatic and still give you the virus.

📷 No, I don’t “live in fear” of the virus; I just want to be part of the solution, not the problem.

📷 I don’t feel like the “government is controlling me” any more than when I wear a seat belt, don’t drive drunk, obey the speed limit, or stop at a red light. I feel like I’m being a contributing adult to society and I want to teach others the same.

📷 The world doesn’t revolve around me. It’s not all about me and my comfort.

📷 If we all could follow these simple steps, the virus could be under control, and businesses back open.

📷 Wearing a mask doesn’t make me weak, scared, stupid, or even “controlled.” It makes me considerate.

📷 When you think about how you look, how uncomfortable it is, or what others think of you, just imagine someone close to you – a child, a father, a mother, aunt, uncle, or grandparent – choking on a respirator, alone without you or any family member allowed at bedside.

📷 Ask yourself if you could have sucked it up a little for them.

Wearing a mask is not political. It’s public health! It’s courtesy.
