Unmasked Utahns are unmasking the myth that we, in this state, take care of each other.

Wearing a mask to keep others safe is the very simplest act of kindness and we can't seem to muster even that.

Utahns' "freedom" to spread infection and kill their neighbors, friends and family is trumping those others' right to life. And these freedom lovers are likely the same folk who rail against abortion.

Keeping distance and wearing masks means folks like Mary Brassard’s family and hundreds of thousands of others of us at risk don’t have to be imprisoned indefinitely. (“How much longer will you keep my family in prison?” Tribune, July 5)

Please respect all your neighbors. Make the myth a reality.
