8-Year-Old Girl Stands Up Against School Mask Mandate and Wins…What’s Your Excuse?
You may have heard about the incredible journey of an 8-year-old girl in Florida who was suspended 38 times for refusing to comply with the school district’s mask mandate.
Fiona Lashells is a second-grader who is fiercely insightful for her age. She has resisted her school’s insane mask mandate. Fiona hasn’t sidestepped the rule a handful of times. Lashells has been suspended from school 38 times for refusing to wear a mask all day.
We say good for her. Twice, the eight-year-old has spoken about the reasoning behind her resistance in front of local school board officials. They were shocked at her candor. Fiona firmly feels that those who promote this senseless, unnecessary rule should be in jail.

“I’m doing it for other kids, not just myself”, Fiona told Fox 8 News in Tampa Bay. A perceptive second-grader appreciates the brevity of what it means for Americans to be forced to conform. She thinks those who trample these American freedoms should receive harsh punishment.
Well, her hard work finally paid off and last week, the mask mandate was repealed following the ruling from a judge.
“Based on a new development at the State level, the School District will be moving to an opt-out status for facial coverings for students in all grade levels beginning this Monday, November 8, rather than on November 15 as you were originally informed,” the Palm Beach County school district told parents on November 6. “A ruling yesterday by Division of Administrative Hearings Judge Newman found the Department of Health’s Emergency Rule 64DER21-15 to be valid, therefore, a parent face covering opt-out will be reinstated effective Monday.”
If we all keep working together to combat these mandates, we can get them dropped everywhere. These mandates have done nothing but tear our country apart even further and this is the last thing that we need. This is, of course, what the Democrats want because they get to step in and try to be the hero in the matter.
