Respect and personal responsibility during the covid-19 pandemic

July 2, 2020

A photograph of the peace and tranquility I once lived in, and for those in the South suffering from the heat imagine yourselves out in this snow!

….it hits 94 degrees with a humidity that brings back memories of the jungles of South East Asia during a monsoon, and here I am with gloves and a face mask on doing my weekly supermarket run. Yes I know its Texas in July during the coronavirus pandemic so I should expect to be wearing protection and suffering in the heat but what about the 30% of people I encounter that are wearing no protection on at all?

Texas is now rivaling the early days of the pandemic when N.Y. had the largest number of COVID-19 cases and still no matter where you go you will find people not wearing a mask. Now some of my fellow hunting guide buddies back in Alaska would say as they sat around the campfire at night that it is an ideal way to ‘thin the herd’ of the shall we say the less intelligent of our species.

The only problem with that theory is those not wearing a mask are endangering anyone they may encounter. We have been told since the pandemic started that you could have no symptoms, while carrying the virus and still infect people if you are not wearing a mask.


I believe
it is your right
not to wear a mask
when no one is near you,
but
it is ‘we the people’s’ right
that you wear one around others.

    I agree. It’s hot here too in Arizona with very little humidity. Arizona heat is brutal. No way you can walk a distance without water or something to cool you down. Needless to say I wear a mask. I’m not trying to get anything from anyone.
