As an at-risk individual I’d like to thank all younger people who are showing empathy for we senior citizens by wearing masks. Yes, masks are inconvenient and yes, you have the right to make your own decisions regarding your body and health. However, you realize that you wear the masks in empathy and to protect those of us who are at greatest risk.
On the infrequent occasions when I have had to go out into the public arena, I make it a point to thank any young people I encounter, who are wearing masks, for their empathy, caring and unselfishness. I encourage others who are at risk to do the same.
