Compassion in Wearing a Mask

What does wearing a mask mean?  For me, it means that I respect other people.  I may not be in great fear of contracting the recent Covid virus, but I recognize that others are.

So, when I wear my mask, I am saying, “I see you.  I understand that you feel more comfortable if I cover my face with a mask or shield.  So I will.”

It is saying that we’re all in this complicated, frustrating situation together.  I trust that, together, we will all get through this…and come out on the other side stronger and happier.  More resilient.

Wearing my mask might hide most of my face…but I can still smile at you with my eyes.
