I enjoyed your perspective, honestly though I think if it were entirely up to the kids they wouldn't wear the masks, particularly the older ones who didn't grow up with it haha. And though I am afraid of the long term effects of COVID (I had it twice!), I'm also afraid of the long-term effects of the masks that we wear and breathe in, particularly to growing children. Ironically, both COVID and prolonged use of K95 masks contribute to impaired cognition. Honestly, I'm afraid of both at this point!
