‘Lack of concern’

Dear Editor:

We have been in and out of different forms of lockdown for over a year, and at this point one thing seems to stay blatantly the same: the lack of concern by a vast majority of the younger generation, and therefore a lack of concern by their parents.

On way too many occasions there have been congregations of younger people around Rockwood, usually later in the day, but on Easter weekend I was sad to see during the middle of the afternoon a group of at least 10 teens, not masked stop to pick up a friend who was concerned about making sure she had a helmet as per her father’s approval but no mask.

This is becoming a frequent occurrence in my neighbourhood and is particularly concerning during this pandemic. Something needs to be addressed.

Tera McMurray,
