When defining COVID Rules,
think less in terms of unbreakable rules
and more in terms of CONSIDERATION, RESPECT,
and MAKING OTHERS COMFORTABLE.

Wearing Facemasks In Public   3 comments

I was stationed on the Japanise island of Okinawa for 18 months, 1967-68. During my stay, it was not uncommon to see some people wearing facemasks. This was something I was not use to seeing, so I asked why?

I was told that the person probably had a cold, and out of respect for others, they were hoping to not spread their germs. “Out of respect for others, ” I thought. How nice and novel. It told me a lot about the people of Okinawa. Since then, I have noticed that when I see someone wearing a facemask in public, they are of Asian descent. 

Now that the world is experiencing a pandemic, it would be nice if we all showed respect for others by wearing a facemask in public. One of the things we have learned about this virus is that we can have it and not experience any systems, yet spread the virus. By showing respect for others, we can stop the spread of COVI-19. Wouldn’t that be novel?

A plague surrounds us
Moving in the night air
Visible in the moonlight.

The streets are empty
Only shadows are moving
Through deep recesses.

People keep sighing
Death comes and goes
Draping the night sky.
