The masked and the unmasked
To the editor:
A recent Associated Press photo pictures Representative Daudt leaving the House not wearing a face mask. It was stated all DFL legislators chose to wear a face mask and all Republicans chose not to.
I am disappointed that we have allowed this crisis to become politicized and that we have sorted ourselves into categories of the masked and the unmasked. I would like to believe that if you are a Republican you have concern for the well-being of all our citizens and that if you are of the DFL persuasion that you also are concerned about people being able to work and businesses doing well.
In a neighborly discussion about businesses reopening I was informed that: “This is America, you know.” Does that mean that individual freedom is paramount or that others believe it is unimportant?
I think we need to do better in this situation than to sort ourselves and each other into the masked and the unmasked.
