Masks- A Life Saver; A Life Taker

At the beginning of this pandemic, I had high hopes for people. Everyone seemed to be understanding and compassionate…. we were all thrown into this craziness and together we would rise above it.

My mother had been explaining the “bird and the bees” to my sister and me when she said, “No one should ever touch you … Continue reading No Longer Sitting in the Lap of Evil
