Two thirds of people in Britain think at least some restrictions should stay in place after “Freedom Day” July 19, one survey showed on Thursday. But Freedom day it is and most restrictions are now lifted including mask wearing, but I for one will continue to wear my mask where I come into close contact with people.
I saw this on Facebook yesterday and it just about sums it up for me.
When I wear a mask in a shop or elsewhere …
🔵 I want it to be known that I’m educated enough to know that I could be asymptomatic and still give the virus.
🔵 No, I don’t ′′ live in fear ′′ of the virus; I just want to be part of the solution, not the problem.
🔵 I don’t feel like the ′′ government is controlling me “. I feel like an adult contributing to society and I wish others would too.
🔵 The world isn’t about me. It’s not just about me and my comfort.
🔵 If we could all live thinking about others, the whole world would be a better place.
🔵 Wearing a mask doesn’t make me weak, scared, stupid or even ′′ controlled “. It makes me considerate.
🔵 When you think about how you look, how uncomfortable it is or what other people think about you, imagine someone close – a child, a father, a mother, a grandfather, an aunt or uncle – wheezing to breathe, choking In a ventilator, alone, without any family allowed on their bedside.
🔵 Ask yourself if at least you could have done it for them.
Nevertheless we had a theme of freedom to the music on today’s One 2 Three.
