This meme is the absolute best thing I’ve seen since the protests to reopen states and businesses began.

How can people be so selfish as to not care about others at all? How can people be so ignorant as to not understand that the risk is not just to themselves? How can people be so self-absorbed that they cannot consider people in cancer treatment or who have diabetes or even just the elderly members of their own family?

Let’s be clear: no one wants to wear a mask or prefers to wear a mask. They are an inconvenience for everyone, and they impact everyone’s ability to breathe as comfortably as they normally do. But it’s for a short period of time and masks contribute to the greater good. We either want to be good citizens of the earth and our communities, or we just need to admit our selfishness.

Sometimes it seems that humanity is just more and more filled with selfish and awful people, and you have to wonder if maybe thinning the herd isn’t the worst thing that could happen.

It’s not Christ-like, and it’s mean. But it’s the truth about what runs around in my brain sometimes.
