Wearing facemasks is something that is fairly new to many of us, but it is a practice that we must get used to.

Some of us have not accepted the seriousness of this virus, some of us might not understand the importance of wearing a mask, some of us have been mocked for using a mask and some of us are sensitive to wearing masks to avoid hurting other people’s feelings.

Dearest families and friends, our culture has instilled a sense of pride and responsibility in us to protect our loved ones and one another. Let this be one of those times. Let us put our facemasks on with pride as a symbol of our responsibility to one another.

We humbly challenge ALL OF US MICRONESIANS to promote this message by taking pictures with our facemasks to show how we have incorporated it in our everyday life, post it on social media with this hashtag: #Micronesians4masks
