HOLLERIN’ COMMON SENSE GOES VIRAL
The Wilco board speech by the Holler’s Justin Kanew continues to circulate. It has now been featured in Newsweek, People Magazine, Today.com, Good Morning America, ABC News, and TONIGHT Kanew is on NBC Nightly News and Primetime with Chris Cuomo talking about the message he gave to the Williamson County School Board.
Even the great Leslie Jones posted about it!
His message was simple: Wear a mask. Take care of each other. It’s a simple thing to do. And if we’re wrong, sorry you had to wear a mask. But if you’re wrong, your kid may end up in the hospital, and you or someone you know may die.
This should be an easy decision. And judging by the reaction to Kanew’s speech at the school board, it’s an attitude shared by many throughout the nation. Turns out a little common sense goes a long way where there’s little of it.
We’ll keep spreading this common sense, and we’re able to do what we do because of your support, so thank you for those who are chipping in monthly, and if you’re not yet please consider doing so – the monthly support truly keeps us going. No monthly amount is too small.
