To the editor:

What’s everyone else’s story? Has your child or grandchild suffered from depression, headaches, infections from the masks, etc.?

For me, my story and I’m sure others as well, was that I was just so happy that my kids even got to go the whole year in person, that I neglected the whole mask issue until about late April of this year— I didn’t want my kids to wear masks but figured that masks weren’t that big of a deal if it meant that they got to go to school in person. It didn’t hit me until I read and started researching the psychological effects of masks that something was wrong and we needed to unmask everyone right away— not to mention the narrative that we should keep masks forever.

My 7 year old is pretty easy going and doesn’t complain much about anything— we call him the trick baby cause he tricks you into thinking that having kids is easy. He would wear his mask down below his nose and he never said anything about headaches or other symptoms that kids often suffer with given proper mask wearing.

It pains me to hear about other kids who have experienced serious issues with masks— I think if others hear these stories then they will too. I hate that I have to spend so much time on social media doing this stuff and spending money with a company that I know is downright tyrannical if not criminal in order to get the word out and organize. But, this is where everyone is and where galvanizing movements begin.

This is part of my story (quick version).

I pray hundreds of others will share their story as well. I really think that this is what will motivate people to look at this closer and eventually turn into unmasking our kids forever (Optional of course, for those who refuse to let go of the masks ).

Thanks again for everyone’s efforts. Keep up the good fight. God nless and God dpeed.
