We need to wait on masks until everybody has a chance to get the vaccine. What is my friend supposed to do with his 4yr old daughter with cystic fibrosis? Just say oh well too bad? I’d love to see any of you selfish people go up to him and say that to his face. It’s not about YOU it’s about everybody.

I believe the number of dead worldwide is 5,969,928 at last count, not the 972,197 which is the U.S. death total

Good news. The trend is in the right direction. Enjoy the mask free days and always live your life without fear or intimidation.

That’s right. Rugged individualism and all that rot. Damn your neighbors if they catch what you’re carrying.
