Maskless dance recital turns into a super-presenter event | Letters
Elizabeth City, you betray your children.
If you want to know why our schools have mask mandates, it is because left to ourselves, we will only accept inconveniences if they are required.
The case in point is a recent recital at a local dance studio in Elizabeth City. A celebratory rite for our kids to show off their talent and hard work, you can see in the social media posts – big smiles, cheek to cheek, and everyone is totally unmasked.
And then the social media posts fell silent for the next two weeks. Why? Because this local super-spraying event infected several families: children, parents, grandparents, uncles – vaccinated and unvaccinated – and even those who had already contracted COVID-19. The number of COVID cases resulting from this unique event was staggering.
Whether it’s legal responsibility, fear or shame, no one is talking about it. They kept quiet so they could pretend that this is normal and that the statistics are just numbers and not their family and friends.
These children look to adults for leadership and at their age they should rely on these adults for their safety. Their parents, the dance hall moms and those who organized this unmasked event let them down.
It’s not how hard you hit, it’s how hard you can be hit
Although I cannot speak for the “ungodly democrats” – I am not a democrat, and I only reject false gods – I surely have enough Celtic and Norman French ancestry to qualify as an Anglo-Saxon ; and as such, I would point out that life does not owe any of us a single thing for any reason; and furthermore, survival of the fittest is ultimately not about how hard you can strike, but rather how hard you can be hit.
I realize that these are difficult concepts for Trump’s liberals, evangelical pagans and crybaby “Alpha men” to grasp; but after all, difficulty is the very substance of sensible existence.
