yikes, i'm sure it was not because he's black
Lots of people wanted to do something nice for Mason or buy him a treat, so she set up a GoFundMe page with a $7 goal. It has raised more than $13,000, which his mom said will go in his college fund.
Gigavaxxed Redditors of course project themselves onto the kid and self-congratulations ensue
Many years from now, this kid may look back at this picture and tell his kids/grand-kids about the pandemic and have pride in how he was being responsible.
Smart decision. Masks should be required at all times outside of your home.
is it weird i want a copy of this young kids school pic on my wall too?
This made me cry happy tears. The photo is beautiful. And sad. If more people were like this family, we wouldn’t have to be masking anymore!
Same. My 6 year old has a cold right now (not Covid, we tested) and he sweetly asked me if I'd wear a mask around him because he didn't want me to get sick. He and his sister never complain about wearing masks anywhere. It's just another clothing item to them.
Props to this kid! I teach 5th grade and I have a student who wears a mask all day, even outdoors, because his parent asked him to. When all his friends take theirs off to wait outside after school, there he is in his mask… so proud of him!
My 1st grader wears his all day except to eat. I actually told him he can take it off outside but he won't because he "want[s] to be used to wearing it all day". He's basically normalized masks to the same level as wearing pants.
lol smart way to make money tbh
Our school gave us an option to pay extra for a bonus masked picture. I was so confused:
scary if true
I've seen young kids (like 5-6) try to talk to mannequin at the store that has masks on - it took a few minutes for the kids to realize it was not a person who was ignoring them. Yes, r/kidsarestupid but it felt really sad to witness. That being said, every single "pandemic baby" (eg kid born after 4/2020) I've met has been an incredibly smiley, cheerful, happy baby, even the ones with medical conditions seemed full of life and spirit.
