Over ten weeks ensued our Midwest communities debate to enact an all-encompassing mask mandate. Sound familiar? Well, it happened today in a reactive plea by our local health practitioners due to “at capacity” ICU status.
Timing is everything these days; like taking out the trash, if you get lazy and miss trash day, you have to deal with a week of stinky trash. Bad analogy? Maybe. But the situation WE ARE ALL IN stinks.
I particularly don’t want our beloved health professionals to clean up what may have been avoidable. I don’t want our children to learn that there is one day you deal with things and not the other six days. Yet, it is on my table. The Midwest, my tiny corner by majestic Mighty Mo, is not immune.
How do we prevail? How do we patiently await the foreseeable future without COVID?
Making a pact, just like the ones currently institutionalized by the universities, we’ve sent off our students to” thrive and stay alive,” or the health care system that has always had a mask policy for its patients’ primary care.
Illness or not, the mask debate has made me sick and tired. The real debate is, how long do you want to live this way?
I am putting this on the table.
