Wearing a mask or taking it off!!

Wearing a mask or taking it off!!

By Fr. Rif’at Bader

The social media sites have recently been noticed to include photos which people post of themselves or of their beloved ones. These “smart” tools have been used to expose human faces, with tall ears, cat whiskers, and roses on the head that beautify the faces. However, what draws attention is posting photos of children with faces of cats or other friendly and tame “animals”.

Why do humans want to hide behind masks?

Why do humans wear the skin of other creatures and play their roles?

Why don’t they focus on the persuasive ability of words and resort to wearing masks or rather borrow artificial skins to have a “new look” or to escape from reality?

These are merely snap-shot and facebook-related inquisitions! They merely deprive children from their childhood, innocence and superiority over other creatures.

Let us stop wearing the "fake" masks, and let us return to our humanity. Let us return to childhood and its beauty.
