Wearing a mask (in good company!)

As my brother and I meandered around downtown Williamsburg on Monday we spotted a Special Someone wearing a mask…

Thomas Jefferson!

As one of our country’s founders (he wrote the Declaration of Independence) Thomas Jefferson is highly esteemed in these parts.

Many moons ago he spent time in our town as a student @ the College of William and Mary. Hence his studious portrayal is located in close proximity to the College in downtown Williamsburg.

Up there with George Washington, Thomas Jefferson is one of the most famous Virginians of the Revolutionary War era. So, if he is wearing a mask, we need to do our part!

Yesterday the governor of Virginia made it official, as of Friday we must wear masks when entering indoor public places. Most people here already are wearing masks inside everywhere, but now “please wear a mask” is “must wear a mask.”

We have been encouraged to be considerate of others (especially the vulnerable) but now we must think of others. That’s kinda nice, actually. What we should be doing anyway…

…wearing a mask in good company!

grace, peace & masks

“Peace and friendship with all mankind is our wisest policy, and I wish we may be permitted to pursue it.” Thomas Jefferson

    I’ve seen videos of people putting masks on statues around these parts, too. I must confess, that’s not going to remind me to wear one. My heartstrings are tugged more when I see pictures of the very old and infirm having to love their families through glass … or just thinking about those poor people who have to die alone in a hospital bed from this horrid disease. Stay safe, Virginia!

      Iโ€™m with you, Debbie – those pictures of loved ones dying alone are heart-rending! Why would anyone NOT wear a mask? Seems like a no-brainer! ๐Ÿ’œโœจ๐Ÿ˜ทโœจ๐Ÿ’œ

  3. Whatever helps to mitigate the spread …Iโ€™m all in! I have even seen some very fashionable and stylish mask. Loving the creativity.

      Iโ€™ve also spotted fun masks – with flowers, fav characters, university colors & even saw a Steelers mask!! (I am huge groupie.) One of my sisterโ€™s friends made us lovely paisley masks (v. fashionable for church wear) + we have comfy masks for everyday wear. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ’
