ALBA FAFAGLIA, San Clemente
This Thanksgiving, our small gathering of three gave thanks for the doctors, nurses, aides, custodians who work in hospitals, nursing homes, for all health care workers everywhere. They take care of us. They are the best of us.
So, I was saddened to read about the large gathering of mostly Trump supporters burning their masks in protests of regulations put in place to control the pandemic.
We are (in) a purple tier, and COVID-19 is affecting more people every day, overwhelming the hospitals and care facilities.
President Trump has been a poor role model. He makes fun of people who wear masks. Trump’s adoring supporters follow him blindly. They do and believe everything he tells them.
Just think, if the President had encouraged us all to wear masks, these same people who throw their masks in a bonfire would do his bidding, and we would be in a much better situation today.
We could give the health care workers a much-needed respite and show them appreciation and respect for the work they do.
