Recently, professional football player Jadeveon Clowney talked about his experience with COVID-19.

He stated how on the first couple of days, he tested negative after feeling ill. On the third day of testing, he got his first positive test result, stating that by then he could not lift his head up.

This from a 6 foot, 4 inch man who trains six hours each day, and that left me wondering about the sanity of those who refuse to respect the health of those that they have contact with.

Smoking in public places is no longer permitted because of the risk that secondhand smoke imposes on those that enter public places. I am trying to recall the nationwide uproar caused by these safety precautions, knowing that decisions like this interrupted individual freedom of choice. Yes, you have a right to pick up a cigar or cigarette of your choice, but what you do not have a right to do is blow smoke in my face.

Just like the fumes from that choice you make, you do not have the right to blow your unmasked, unvaccinated breath in my face as well, at least if you are a decent human being who cares about the well-being of everyone else. Individual choice, yes, you have it, but with those choices there are also consequences. I support those that spell out exactly what those consequences are.
