In this conversation with Todd Jeffries and Don Pryor on Austin’s KLBJ 590 AM, Bonnen also puts mask-wearing in context (“we’re not asking a generation to fight in Viet Nam, we’re asking them to wear a mask”) and reminds listeners that mask-wearing is primarily to keep the wearer from spreading the virus, with the secondary benefit of protecting the wearer.
Our generation and younger have never had a real literal war so we don’t know what self-sacrifice is. We’re not asking kids to graduate HS and go to Vietnam. We’re asking you to wear a mask. It’s a minor inconvenience.Speaker Dennis Bonnen
