May 5, 2021; this is the morning that my child finally broke down. I knew it was coming, as her typical excitement and love for school has begun to fade. My daughter, a 7 year old 1st grader, along with thousands of other elementary school students have shown incredible strength and resilience this past year. That morning as I entered the school drop off line, she started to cry. For anyone who knows my daughter, they know she is tough and that tears are incredibly uncommon. Together, we spent 20 minutes sitting outside. During that time, she cried so hysterically that she struggled to catch her breath. While hyperventilating and sobbing, she begged me not to send her to school, finally admitting that she “feels suffocated while she wears a mask all day”. She described “I can't breathe when I am playing soccer because it feels like there is a blanket over my mouth.”

The image of my daughter playing outdoors, exerting herself during a game of soccer, while feeling as if she’s being suffocated by a blanket is an image that breaks my heart.

My daughter is not the only child who is suffering through these mandates. There needs to be a change; a healthy balance. Per CDC guidelines, masks are not required in restaurants, movie theaters or even strip clubs. Why can’t we expect the same guidelines for our children attending class?

Join us as we fight for this basic freedom on behalf of our children. Join us in protecting their mental and physical wellbeing. As parents, this is our duty.
