ONE OF LAST WEEK’S most commented news piece was the one about Walmart and their new mask requirement starting next week.
It’s an interesting one still when it comes to masks. Some grumble and openly refuse to even consider wearing one, while others just go with it, saying it’s good for everyone’s safety. It is. And it does not eliminate the risk completely but it sure takes it down a few notches when we’re out in public.
If my wearing a mask can put someone’s mind at ease, someone whose risk is way higher than mine that is, than it’s worth it. Plus, on a personal level, I am considering my own well-being and my family’s.
My youngest had asthma when he was younger. It’s been a smooth couple of years and I want to hope he has completely outgrown it, but I cannot escape the thought that he might have not and should he contract the virus, that will show.
