This is my son Elijah. He is 5 years old. He is supposed to enter the public school system, but our district is not requiring masks or offering distance learning. He has two brothers who have airway defects. I am terrified he will get the delta variant
I am terrified that he will give it to his brothers. I am terrified that I may bury one of my babies because my son has to go to school with no protection from a deadly virus.
I spoke with a news station last night and as soon as they heard that I was speaking out about this they no longer wanted to do a story. I don’t understand how the media will not talk about what parents are going through.
Parents are terrified their child will die from delta just from going to school, I am terrified. We have to talk about this.
The news station was @16WAPTNews I cant help but be so angry. Parents are terrified their babies could die from going to school, but the media refuses to talk about it. This has to change.
To every person saying “put a mask on your child if your scared” my mask protects you, your mask protects me. Masks don’t work unless everyone wears them. To everyone who says masks don’t work, you are stupid learn science.
If you could please retweet this thread, I’m just trying to reach the media in hopes of getting this story out there. Schools NEED to be offering virtual learning. Thank you so much!!

When my son was 2 months old he went into complete respiratory failure from a coronavirus. He has an airway defect called laryngomalacia putting him at higher risk that it could kill him. He spent 9 days on a ventilator fighting to survive coronavirus
Because of coronavirus he would need a gtube to survive, having that gtube caused a complete looped small bowel obstruction. That obstruction left him fighting for his life again on a ventilator for 10 days. He went septic, third spaced.
We were told to say good bye, that he was critical. So maybe you’ll survive Covid, but maybe you won’t survive the complications. Get vaccinated. Get your kids vaccinated.

This is my son Wyatt. This picture is from the day he went completely unresponsive from Covid 19. Everyone told me not worry because, “Covid doesn’t effect children.” They couldn’t have been more wrong. I watched as all of the color left his body.
He became as white as a ghost. I screamed for him to wake up so many times I lost count. I shouted his name, shook his chest, I did everything I could and still he just laid there unresponsive. He would later be transferred to a children’s hospital
Where he stayed for 10 days. It’s been 5 months and my son still suffers the effects of Covid. He still fights daily to be okay since having Covid. So please, don’t be me. Get your child vaccinated. Don’t let your baby suffer from Covid.
