I made the same promise. I wore a paper bag for a few outings, after that without mask, I don't carry it also. I will not take part in this paranoia. If we are so meek that we cannot stand up to this mask bullshit how can we stand up to a real threat in the future? Resistance really has to start from day one.I promised myself at the beginning of all this b.s. I would NOT wear a mask. I have stayed true to that personal oath, and though I get harassed by these Karen store clerks on the daily, I cannot stray from the promise that I made to myself to not buy into this (obvious) social conditioning while having our rights stolen from every sector of life.
