On Friday, a video went viral of an emotional mother by the name of Courtney Ann Taylor testifying before a Georgia school board, on the verge of tears over her kids having to still wear masks in 2021:
Taylor took the podium and said:
"This is not March 2020 anymore. We have three vaccines, every adult in the state of Georgia that wants that vaccine is eligible to get it, right now, and every one of us knows that young children are not affected by this virus. They’re not, and that’s a blessing.
But as the adults what have we done with that blessing? We’ve shoved it to the side and we’ve said we don’t care.
'You’re still gonna wear a mask on your face every day, 5 and 6-year-olds, you still can’t play together on the playground like normal children, 7 and 8-year-olds.We don’t care. We are still going to force you to carry a burden that was never yours to carry.'
Shame on us.
She says, 'Are you going to tell them tonight? Tell them I don’t want to wear this anymore.' And I say ‘Baby, it’s not time to fight that battle yet.'
It is April 15, 2021, and it’s time. Take these masks off of my child."
