Mr. Hooper in The Minister's Black Veil said "I, perhaps, like most other mortals, have sorrows dark enough to be typified by a black veil." Mr. Hooper is positing here that everyone has a secret sin that they hide from the society. It may not be too true, but it is not far from the truth, and it should not be like this. Why do people put on the mask? If a Christian still has secret sins that are hidden from others, then he/she has not come to full transformation.
This is what happens nowadays. Social media especially are places where people create their own avatars or even doppelganger according to the prescription of the society. That is why some of them take brushed up pictures to place on their profiles and praises start pouring in. “Oh, you look beautiful”. “Oh, you are great”! “Oh, a happy couple”! “Oh, you are such a nice family”! They know that their family is falling apart. They know that they are not the skinny athletic girl they parade on their profile. They know that they are not the happy couple their picture shows. They know that they do not want people to see them in real life, yet for a moment, it makes them feel good and the hero or heroine of the society. They are wearing a mask. Nevertheless, they know who they are behind that mask. Yes, they know themselves!
“Bonyfish beware because the same net that caught the jawless fish, caught the cartilaginous fish” (Hamilton Ayuk). Beware earthly paradise seekers because there is a serpent in every paradise"(Hamilton Ayuk). Idle people write, idler people read, and idlest people read and whine that idle people are taking their time (Hamilton Ayuk).
