100% reject this level of fear Jess. Maybe 1000% if that's possible. The best part is now I read a piece like this and instead of getting fired up like I might have a year ago now I just feel bad. I feel bad that there are people out there that actually believe you. Believe CNN. Believe that cases = deaths. Sad that you want to disregard the clear science and the data of a virus that is now endemic. I'm not anti-vaxx. I don't support the orange man. I just follow the non-partisan science. It says wash your hands. Avoid people you know who are sick. Stay healthy. Get lots of Vitamin D

But a life of fear and of thinking that tightening your mask strap is going to make a measurable difference? Esp. after seeing crowds at Lollapalooza, Tuscaloosa, and many other - oosas not result in a pile of body bags.


Almost everything great that I've done in life has included risk. What's the fun if you know exactly what's going to happen?

Thanks for your message of fear but I choose life. Life includes risk. I knew that coming in.

I was born in a small town to John and Priscilla. Not a pilgrim exactly just another latch-key kid obsessed with BMX and Tom Petty. Now I make films.
