How hard can it be?

My fellow citizens of the USA, the state of Washington and the city and county of Spokane. To those of you who have never had the opportunity to serve your country, either in government service or the military, you are now being presented with that precise opportunity.

To continue to make this country the greatest in the world, we need to defeat an invisible invader. To help our friends and neighbors save their livelihoods and their businesses, we need to put politics aside and take the advice of the most brilliant minds in the country. They are pleading with us to just wear a mask. How hard can it be? We wear a shirt and shoes when entering most establishments.

Help defeat COVID-19 by putting on a mask when in public places.
