A first-grader didn’t take lightly his mother’s advice to keep his mask on in school. In fact, he took it so seriously that he refused to remove it for his school photo.
According to a report by WXYZ 7, in the Peoples’ family, “mask up in school” is a number one rule to be taken seriously, which is exactly what first-grader Mason did.
When asked to take his mask down for a school picture, Mason refused. His mother, Nicole Peoples, describes the moment in a Facebook post:
“Photographer: ‘Ok, take your mask off.’”
“Mason: ‘My mom said to keep it on all the time unless I’m eating and far away from everybody.’”
“Photographer: ‘I’m sure it’s ok to take it off for your pictures.’”
“Mason: ‘No, my mom seriously told me to make sure to keep it on.’”
“Photographer: ‘Are you sure you don’t want to take it off for 2 seconds?’”
“Mason: ‘No Thank you, I always listen to my mom!’”
“Photographer: ‘Ok, say cheese!’”
Reportedly, Peoples’ Facebook post has garnered thousands of likes and comments.
Because there were many who reached out to ask how they could contribute money “for gifts, ice cream, or Mason’s college scholarship fund,” Peoples wrote on her Facebook post that she has created a GoFundMe account for that purpose.
“He is such a good kind hearted, caring, loving, smart, and helpful little boy. Thank you for showing him that his honesty and integrity will make a big difference in this world,” Peoples wrote.
