Since (a) Covid-19 is an indiscriminate killer (36,983+ confirmed deaths / 2,579,861+ confirmed cases / 3,974,379+ unvaccinated in Michigan, as of 01-05-23),
(b) ‘collective sacrifice is the soil from which personal freedom grows’ (think of the sacrifices made to win WWII (1939-1945)), and
(c) “... we must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly we shall all hang separately” (Franklin 1906:269),
we will take the necessary precautions until this pandemic ends. Therefore,
my students and I will all be wearing — properly — the N95 masks or the European or Asian equivalences (FFP2 or KN95, respectfully).
