In times of pandemic/uncertaintly, hate rhetoric seems to permeate out of people. Hate is the worst kind of disease/virus, and to combat the spread of more "nastiness", I go back to the roots of 90's rave culture: P.L.U.R. "Peace" "Love" "Unity" and "Respect" were the essential pillars of philosophy/way of life for most that experienced the 90's era rave scene. I believe our World could use a lot more PLUR these days.

Our masks and face covers, which can go over n-95 masks, do help to prevent exposure to the virus by decreasing your ability to touch your face.
