Letter: Wearing a mask isn't too much to ask

To the Editor:

Previous generations have had to endure "The Great Depression" which lasted several years and affected millions. Previous generations had to endure two World Wars that not only affected the soldiers involved, but the people at home who had to make countless sacrifices including rationing.

Previous generations have had to endure the "Cold War" and the "Cuban Missile Crisis" which had students crouching in school hallways in case of a nuclear attack. Previous generations lived through the political turmoil of the 1960s and the consequences of three assassinations, a war, and civil unrest.

There was the oil embargo during the 1970s, when people had to wait in long lines to buy only five gallons of gas, gas stations ran out of gasoline regularly and were not even open on Sundays. We had a "Gulf War'' and a couple of recessions in the 80s and 90s.

Then there was 9/11/2001.....

Being asked to wear a mask and social distance when out in public doesn't seem to be too much to ask.
