As my brother and I meandered around downtown Williamsburg on Monday we spotted a Special Someone wearing a mask…
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…
grace, peace & masks
Virginia : )
“Peace and friendship with all mankind is our wisest policy, and I wish we may be permitted to pursue it.” Thomas Jefferson
