During Wold War Two, Rosie the Riveter was a symbol of pride and encouragement. She is now 94 years old and is lending her hands to sew masks for those who may need one.

I still don't understand why there are those who refuse to wear a mask in public. It is an easy thing to do and as a guy who is in favor of protecting our rights, I still feel like this is something that only can help us get through this weird time in American history. I understand that we are Americans and have freedoms that other countries only can dream of. However, a mask is an easy thing to wear for most and if it helps us get back to whatever normal might be in the near future, I am all for it.

True, the statements from officials seem to change as to whether or not masks should be mandatory and if they really help. But why not wear a mask for that brief time you are in public and help prevent the spread?

It was great to see Rosie the Riveter tending for a good reason today! Perhaps she is just what we need to help motivate those who need an extra push these days?
