A father in Naperville, Illinois addressed his local school board about the devastating effects that masking has had on his daughter who has special needs:

“This morning, she got up before us, and she started singing a song to her dolls about how excited she was that kids were finally going to be able to see her smile, that she was going to be able to see other kids’ smiles, that kids would be able to understand her, and she would stop being picked on because they could not understand her through her mask because her speech has been delayed even more than her special needs. She is a strong girl, but when I heard her do that, and I heard the things that she said, it broke me. I will never forgive myself for not fighting more.”

After the father’s emotional statement, a callous school board member could only reply with this:

“I’m just going to remind all individuals in this audience and in our overflow rooms, you need to have on a mask.”
