So it happened. I do a regular friday night meeting with a bunch of folks. We are not requiring masks be worn. There is usually about 20 to 30 of us. No one wears them. A person came in (new to the group) wearing a mask and sat down. She quickly realized no one was wearing mask and left. It was brought up that we made her uncomfortable and we should wear masks for that one person's sake. I countered that she did the right thing by deciding, for herself, that being there was not a good choice for her and that that's what we were all doing. Making personal choices and that there were other meetings that did require masks. My response was met with some telling me I was being selfish. I pointed out that we,as a group, made the no mask desicion.We'll see where it goes...I love the group and its important to my life. But I'm not wearing a mask for an hour on a friday night.
