Why I wear my mask.

I’ve been wearing my mask in public all along. I don’t wear it because the governor told me that I have to, I'm not being forced by anyone, or giving up my rights or freedom.

I wear it because it’s the right thing to do.

The most important, obvious reason why is because I don’t want to get sick and I don’t want to make others sick. The mask is the most important tool we have to keep the spread of disease down. I want to stay healthy and I don’t want to make those I love and care for ill. So, I wear my mask. 

In a month or so we are hoping to start school again. As a teacher I’m going to be expected to tell students to wear their masks. If I expect them to do it, I need to do it as well. So, I wear my mask.

Kentucky started to open back up a few weeks ago, stores and restaurants. I like that. I miss being out. If the Covid numbers go up, those places will have to be closed again. So, I wear my mask. 

People are being harassed and bullied because they were wearing masks. I hate bullies. We need to stand up to them. So, I wear my mask.

It is time for all of us to do what needs to be done. So, wear your mask.
