Wearing a mask (or not) should not be a political issue. Americans should not be killing each other over a strip of fabric. Let’s try to get through the rest of the year with a bit of civility and common sense.
It’s easy to use the language of war to stir emotions and gin up patriotism, but it’s also irresponsible. We are not at war. We are faced with an international health crisis that will only be solved through global cooperation, sound scientific research, and proven strategies to slow the rate of contagion. It’s not as rousing as a war cry, but it’s more accurate.
