Don’t be a dummy Buckle up Mask up

Once upon a time, Americans moaned and groaned about seat belt laws, complaining about violations to personal freedom, despite proven evidence of the life saving benefits that simply wearing a seat belt provides. Fast forward to present day, and people wear seat belts, usually without giving it a second thought. People buckle up.

We are in a pandemic. Masks have the ability to save lives, preventing the spread of deadly airborne droplets. Yet, some Americans are screaming about their liberty and personal freedom, despite the effectiveness wearing masks is proven to have. 3,046 people died today from coronavirus. Wear a mask, think of it like wearing a seat belt, it saves lives.

Don’t be a dummy. Buckle up. Mask up.
