To Mask or Not to Mask

To mask or not to mask: there is the question.

Whether it is nobler in the mind to protect others from an unseen fate that will steal the lives of their loved ones away, or cast off the covering to show a defiance that we imagine makes us seem stronger, stronger even than death.

To sleep, to dream, waking up each day in an unreal world where science is suspect and mercy is inconvenient, the exhaustion of uncertainty numbs the heart and shadows the path of reason. Future generations will one day wonder how we lost our way.

To mask or not to mask: it is such a simple question with such a clear answer. If I knew I could save even a single life, I would gladly wear a mask every day.

What else would love have me do?
